Fruit pizza is the perfect summery snack for a picnic in the park, which is exactly what Ellie is making for her best friend, Vi. They’ve been through it all together – celebrations and tough times, and right now Vi needs cheering up, so Ellie’s preparing some of their favourite food to share in the sunshine.
- Tip the soft cheese into a large mixing bowl and add the yogurt, stirring to combine. Cover and chill in the fridge for 10 mins.
- Meanwhile, cut 4 round slices from the centre of the watermelon, each measuring about 1.5cm thick, and place on a chopping board. Gently pat the top of the slices with kitchen paper to absorb any excess moisture.
- Spread each watermelon round with the soft cheese mix and arrange the fruit on top. Scatter over the lime zest, then cut the rounds into slices. If you prefer, cut each watermelon round into slices first, then spread with the soft cheese and top with the fruit and zest. Serve immediately.
There are lots of ways to use up leftover watermelon – try our refreshing ice lolly recipe.
Turn leftover yogurt and fruit into a delicious alternative to ice-cream, by blitzing together with a few drops of vanilla essence and a couple of tablespoons of honey. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze overnight.
