I know…I know…before you think I’m crazy for making a watermelon pizza, bear with me, please.
I found myself unexpectedly home for the week and decided to seize the opportunity and teach my younger siblings all about healthy eating.
This recipe was the perfect way to introduce healthy eating to them. I feel like Ramadan is the perfect time to teach them about clean eating–all the fruits were a wonderful way to keep them hydrated while getting some extra fiber in their little bodies. It was so much fun to make and it looked and tasted absolutely gorgeous.
So, here’s how you get it done:
1- Go to your local grocer and buy yourself a nice and plump watermelon.
2- Cut the watermelon in half.
3- Cut one slice off the top of one of the watermelon halves.
4- Cut the slice of watermelon into 8 slices (pie style).
5- Layer the “pizza slices” with sliced bananas, kiwi, strawberries, goji berries, blackberries and sprinkle with mint leaves and shredded coconut.
6- Easy, peasy!
The good thing about this recipe is that you can pimp it up or down depending on what ingredients you’ve got lying around. You can drizzle on some rose water, honey, or balsamic vinegar. You can even sprinkle on some nuts! You could literally put whatever you feel like putting on it! My parents had some berries in the backyard and that’s why I put some on. It’s totally up to you!
Who says healthy eating has to be boring and can’t involve your kids, right?
Go straight-up bananas with me and give this recipe a go and tell me what you think!
