25 Mouth-Watering Watermelon Desserts…the perfect refreshment that shouts, “Summertime is here!”

I’m so excited Watermelon is almost in season! I LOVE watermelon and watermelon desserts.

Seriously, there is nothing that satisfies more on a squelching summer day than watermelon.  So juicy, so fresh, so sweet – and so healthy! It truly is the perfect refreshment. And, watermelon’s flavor is so versatile – it works great in so many different kinds of recipes. Watermelon desserts do the trick on those sticky, hot days.

There’s no shortage of watermelon recipes for you to experiment with – cookies, pies, popsicles, and fun twists on fresh watermelon.  There are fantastic options for the little humans, for the backyard BBQs, and for your fancy girl get-togethers.  And really, you don’t have to be a genius in the kitchen to pull off some of these desserts – it almost makes itself!

Watermelon is always a hit in the summer, no matter the occasion. You absolutely can’t go wrong!

    What did you use for the white layer in the Watermelon pops?? I am guessing strawberry and lime jello? What did you use for the seeds?? TOOO CUTE!!!

      hey! I didn’t make any of these, just inspiration I found online. :) There’s links under each picture. I’m guessing the white is a cream, and the seeds almost look like mini chocolate chips.

    I created some yummy watermelon cookies too. I would suggest that using mini chocolate chips will look much more like seeds and will be a bigger crowd pleaser than using raisins or currants! Funny thing is…these days kids don’t even know about seeds in watermelon- many watermelons are seedless! Glad to share my recipe if interested!

      Oh I agree chocolate chips would be so much easier!! I would love the recipe!
