What if we told you that you could top off a big dinner with a pizza -- and not feel one shred of remorse?

That's why you love us, Womanistas, because we're granting you permission to eat pizza for dessert with a clean conscience. Except instead of calorie-laden cheese, it's light berries and cream; and instead of carb-y crust, it's crunchy watermelon. Sounds even better than the original, right?

We're in the thick of watermelon season right now, so hit up your local farmer's market and snatch a few juicy watermelons before summer's over to make this incredibly refreshing and healthy sweet treat.

1 large watermelon slice cut from the center of the melon

Fresh mint leaves for garnish
A sprinkle of sea salt

1. Combine yogurt, honey and vanilla in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.

3. Cut each slice into 8 wedges. Finish by adding a sprinkle of sea salt, a drizzle of extra honey and topping with mint sprigs.
