What better way to celebrate summer than with these fun, healthy ice pops? These healthy, frozen snacks are made without an ice cream maker.
5 cups seedless watermelon pulp
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
2 1/2 cups lime Greek yogurt or vanilla Greek yogurt (gluten free if needed) (mixed with 2 drops green food coloring each)
- In a blender, puree watermelon and sugar in batches until smooth and strain into a medium bowl. Cover and freeze until the watermelon puree is slushy, but not solid, about 2 to 3 hours. Remove from freezer and stir well. Add blueberries and stir.
- Divide the pureed watermelon among twelve 5-oz disposable cups, leaving about a 1/2 inch from the rim. Place the cups in freezer for 2 hours, or until puree is solid.
- Spoon approximately 2 tablespoons of the yogurt into each watermelon cup, and smooth the top. Cover each cup with plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the center of each piece of plastic wrap and insert a popsicle stick into each pop so that it almost reaches the bottom of the cup. Freeze overnight, or until solid. The pops can be frozen for up to 2 days.
- When ready to serve, peel the cup off the pop. Serve immediately.
