Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes are a perfectly cool & healthy way to turn fruit into dessert!
Have you ever felt like summer was so close you could almost taste it?
Yes, I know it’s only spring, but I’m so ready for summer!! Not only because I love summer fruit, but because I am so super excited about moving out of Birmingham & back to the Chattanooga area & my home state of Tennessee!
And since this summer is going to be crazy with our move & closing on our first home I thought it would be important to share this recipe sooner rather than later.
Life is about to get crazy busy & I wouldn’t want the summer to slip by without getting a chance to share these Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes with you!
Speaking of summer watermelon recipes, if you have extra watermelon leftover after making these Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes you have a delicious opportunity to make Watermelon Fruit Leathers or Watermelon Syrup!
Oh & I also have another little watermelon recipe that I will be sharing with you next Monday too! So if you aren’t subscribed to Domestically Blissful yet, you can do so at the bottom of this post or in my right sidebar.
Can you tell I’m desperate for summer & summer food?
I’m super eager to move & begin this next stage of our life. We are already counting down the weeks & days until we move back & I can start creating new recipes for you in our remodeled kitchen.
Sorry, I started daydreaming about our home again… I can’t wait to share with you all of our ideas & plans.
But until then I’ll try to focus in on the here & now.
Living in the present!
And today that means focusing on this Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes recipe!
I love that these Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes can be enjoyed anytime! Breakfast, brunch, dinner, or dessert! They make adorable additions to wedding showers, a picnic, summer party, baby showers, or even tea time!
I’m thinking I might need to make these this summer (once we move back) for my nieces & nephews as a special summertime treat to cool down during those extra hot southern summer days! In all reality making Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes for them will only be an excuse to eat them for myself.
Although I really don’t need an excuse because this recipe is not only super easy to make, but it’s a guilt free naturally sweet treat!
To create these Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes I used a normal cookie cutter & small knife to create the cupcake shape, but a biscuit cutter like this one would have worked a lot easier since it would create a deep cut & would eliminate the need for a small knife. Making these Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes even quicker & easier to make!
And the frosting is actually made out of canned coconut milk & can be created with no added sweetener (unless you so desire) making this recipe completely vegan & a healthy alternative to normal cupcakes loaded with sugar frosting.
ps. You can find the full recipe below!
While fruit, on top of fruit, on top of fruit is delicious, I will admit that my favorite Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes are the ones topped with chocolate chips! But you can add any topping you like!
You could add berries, chocolate chips, nuts, mint, sprinkles, caramel bits, butterscotch chips, or even more watermelon.
I’d love to hear how you will top your Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes! Leave your topping ideas in the comments below!
- Chilled Canned Coconut Milk*(1)
- Vanilla Extract
- Sweeter (Sugar or Honey) - Optional
- Toppings - Berries, Chocolate Chips, Nuts, ect.
- First, cut your watermelon into thick slices & use a biscuit cutter to create the cupcake shape. Place your watermelon cupcakes in cupcake liners.
- Next, open your can of chilled coconut milk & scoop out the solid section on top & place it in a bowl.
- Whip the chilled solid coconut milk with a blender until fluffy, then add vanilla extract (I used about 1/4 teaspoon) & sweeter to taste.
- Top your cupcakes with coconut whipped cream & your favorite toppings & enjoy.
- *1. Place the canned coconut milk in your fridge overnight before making this recipe. I used Thai Kitchen Pure Coconut Milk.
I’d love to see your Fresh Watermelon Cupcakes!

With love, G
In Him we have redemption through His blood,
the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,
having made known to us the mystery of His will,
according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ,
both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.
