Serves: 32 pops
Prep time: 1.5-2 hours
Total time: 3.5-4 hours
½ of a Watermelon, seedless
1 ½ cups of Greek yogurt, Vanilla or plain
Popsicle molds like these. We got ours from Walmart at an after summer sale for $.25 each.
Cut the rind off of the watermelon and dice into chunks.
Place watermelon flat on a cookie sheet or pan and stick in the freezer for about 1 hour. You want them to begin the freezing process but not be completely frozen. (I sometimes will do this step the day before and left the watermelon on the counter for about 15-20 minutes to begin to defrost when I am ready to blend them)
Place partially frozen watermelon chunks and Greek yogurt into a blinder and blind.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Fill all the way to the top. Any gaps can cause the sticks to not freeze with the watermelon, Freeze for about 1-2 hours or longer.
Note: I make these for summer work gatherings and such. They are easy to make and freeze well until you are ready to use them. Sometimes the pops can be tricky to get out of the mold. I just put my hand on the outside of the mold to warm it up while twisting the top until they slide out.
