Does anything scream summertime quite like watermelon? Its burst of pink and green color appears in so many of our summer memories. Perhaps you remember the first time your grandma let you cut the watermelon with the kitchen knife or that time your cousin tried to fit an entire slice into his mouth. Until now, it has seemed like watermelon has been limited to the real deal or a very false tasting Jell-o. Recently there have been waves of adorable, summery, delicious watermelon desserts popping up all over the web, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited! So check out our favorite summertime watermelon desserts and tell us about some of your summer food memories!
These Watermelon Cupcakes with Sweet Watermelon Buttercream from Bakingdom are amazing! Not only do they look super cute, but they actually taste like watermelon! These sweets utilize a fancy watermelon extract to make them taste like that first refreshing bite.
This next recipe is a summer essential. This Cool Whip Watermelon Sorbet from The Family Kitchen is bound to be an instant classic. This dessert blends creamy, decadent Cool Whip with the light, sweet flavor of watermelon to create a must-have dessert for those hot summer nights.
This Watermelon Cake from Bird on a Cake has me so excited. I can’t help but picture this stunner on a block party dessert table or, even better, having one sitting and getting chilly in my fridge. Yum.
These Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats seen on Be Different, Act Normal are becoming popular all over the web. Originally posted by Dine and Dish, these tasty, kid friendly snacks are catching on like Pinterest wildfire. I am smitten too and can’t wait to feature these at my next summer picnic.
This Watermelon Frosty from Healthy, Happy Life is particularly exciting for me because this is the summer that I (finally) turn 21. I can just imagine sipping these bad boys pool side (after July 30th, that is). And you can rest assure that these are at least, moderately, healthy as Healthy, Happy Life is 100% Vegan.
