Lemonade Cream Pie Shooter

Each serving of this creamy pie includes almost a half cup of watermelon, a source of lycopene, a compound related to beta carotene that lowers the risk for heart disease, inflammation, and even skin aging. The potassium in watermelon is important for maintaining a healthy heart beat and the vitamin C is one of the body’s major antioxidants. By using just a touch of Splenda and the egg substitute instead of more sugar and whole eggs, you save 50 calories and 64 milligrams of cholesterol, yet get the same yummy sweet-and-creamy taste.
