To get started, cut your watermelon in half and scoop out the pink flesh using an ice cream scoop. Place the coconut cream, coconut oil, and watermelon flesh into a food processor and blend until smooth. Note: Since you’ll be using an entire watermelon, you may need to divide the ingredients into two batches before blending.
Next, pour the mixture into the watermelon halves and place inside the freezer for six hours. When frozen, transfer the halves onto a cutting board with the open halves facing down. Carefully slice the halves into wedges and decorate with chocolate chips to create the “seeds”. If too frozen to cut, thaw for 20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy immediately or freeze leftovers in a sealed container for up to one month.
