Make this vegan Watermelon Poke Bowl for your next healthy lunch to dinner! It is so easy to make and absolutely delicious.

I am full on obsessed with making poke bowls right now. And this watermelon poke bowl is SOOO good. It is such an easy and delicious recipe to make that is healthy, quick and filled with so many flavors in the best way.

This poke bowl is really refreshing to eat in the warmer months too. I love having it for lunch. Especially with the seaweed snack cut up on top or a little salty crunch action. You can of course use another ingredient like a traditional poke bowl protein like sushi grade fish instead of watermelon. But I recommend trying it! It was really delicious and I was pleasantly surprised.

I cannot wait to hear what you think of this!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What ingredients are in this Watermelon Poke Bowl:

  • Watermelon – yes the fruit kind you are familiar with!
  • Coconut aminos – my go-to alternative for a soy-free soy sauce
  • Sesame oil – such a good flavor blast into the marinade
  • Rice vinegar – this has become a staple in my pantry!
  • White rice – you could also use brown rice if you prefer!
  • Edamame – I usually buy frozen organic from the store and just heat it in microwave
  • Mango – I love adding this in for sweetness with the watermelon
  • Jalapeños – or remove if you don’t like spice in your food
  • Cucumber – the seedless mini ones are best here
  • Seaweed snack – I LOVE adding this in there for a little sushi type feel and the seaweed snack as some extra saltiness and a crunch
  • Sesame seeds and chopped scallions to garnish
