No Bake Watermelon Cake
If you are looking to cut a few calories on cake you’ve gotta try this “Paleo friendly” No Bake Watermelon Cake recipe. I’ve never seen watermelon go so fast in my house! The kids were very excited when they saw this cake! They acted like it was a birthday party!! I was a bit surprised to see just how excited they were! It’s made with a homemade whipped cream recipe that was really thick! Holds up nicely!
I’ve been trying really, really hard to stick to clean eating and it sure does help when you have a beautiful arrangement of fruit that tastes amazing. One of my main inspirations is the Clean Eating Magazine. You can get the first 30 days free here on Amazon too!
All you iSavers already know about our No Bake Ice Cream cake recipe and have proven your love for the “No Bake” options but now it’s time to try a healthier no bake cake. I just know you are going to like this one too!
There are many different options you can do with this cake too. For example, you can use Coconut Whipped Cream recipe found here to make it Paleo friendly! Who says you can’t have Cake while on the Paleo Plan?!! You can add different types of fruit to the top of your cake. I choose to have raspberries and blueberries because those are our family favorites but feel free to experiment or add your own favorites. I added natural almonds to the sides of this no bake watermelon cake recipe but you can add granola too. Stick with the Almonds if you are Paleo though. Or leave the almonds off altogether if you don’t like them. I’ve also had friends create mini Watermelon Cupcakes topped with whipped cream! Cute right?!!
First we cut our watermelon. We cut the round ends off and carved the cake out of the heart of the watermelon like this:
Next we frosted our watermelon with real whipped cream. (be sure to use coconut whipped cream for the Paleo version though)
Note: I’ve not used Cool Whip topping so I’m not sure if it would work or not. The real whipped cream purchased from HEB near the strawberries works great though!
Tip: Be sure your watermelon is nice and cold when you are frosting it. The whipped cream sticks nicely when it’s cold.
Next I added fresh raspberries and blueberries on top! Then added the sliced almonds on the side. Feel free to add granola to leave it plain too.
Wouldn’t this cake be perfect to make for a 4th of July Party?!!!
Oh and the cake held up nicely in the refrigerator overnight. When I sliced another piece there was a little bit of water in the bottom of the plate so next time I think I will lay down a paper towel under the watermelon on the plate before I decorate it. The whipped cream held up nicely overnight too! For some reason I was thinking it would melt right off but it didn’t!
