Strawberry Watermelon Yogurt Pops Recipe

Eat a healthy snack with these strawberry watermelon pops.  They are made without refined sugar and have yogurt for extra protein.

There are many benefits to summer.  Long days, not paying for heat, fresh veggies, and popsicles.  I'll admit that I like popsicles just as much as my kids do.

Store bought popsicles are yummy, but they are full of dyes and sugar.  I have two picky eaters, so I need to make every bite count.

I prefer to make my own pops because I can control the ingredients.  I usually use fresh fruit, but this is a great one to make if there's no fresh fruit available.
Of course, you can always add fresh strawberries to these strawberry watermelon yogurt pops for more flavor and more texture in your frozen pops.

STRAWBERRY WATERMELON YOGURT POPSICLES RECIPE


Like I said, I have two picky eaters.  Many kids and adult on the spectrum are picky eaters.

Neither of my boys eat meat save for chicken nuggets.  I'm pretty sure we will be ordering catered chicken nuggets at my oldest son's wedding!

YOGURT


I made these pops with yogurt to sneak some protein.  When I made these originally, I used a regular yogurt.  I now use a Greek yogurt for more protein.

I buy flavored yogurt to make these super easy.  I buy fruit when it's in season.  It tastes better, and it helps me stick to my budget.
With this easy fruit and yogurt healthy popsicle recipe, you can enjoy any fruit at any time of the year.

JUICE


I used watermelon juice for this recipe.  We don't think juice often, but my kids love watermelon juice.  It's very different and refreshing.
It also pairs well with the strawberry for a fun new flavor.

FRUIT


If you want to cut fresh fruit, you can line the mold with it, spoon in the yogurt and juice mixture, and put some on top.  I made it like this sometimes.

POPSICLE MOLD


I was using a mold that had the handles, but they kept getting lost.  I had three molds, but I was down to 3 sticks.  I upgraded to a silicone mold, and I love it.


It's easier to unmold them in a silicone mold, too.  And it uses wooden popsicle sticks.  I'm not normally one for waste, but we usually have pops on the patio.  Now I don't have to worry about them getting lost.
Feel free to switch the flavors and make your own combinations.  You could make blueberry and lemon or strawberry peach.  Get creative!

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ounces Strawberry Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons watermelon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey (optional)

DIRECTIONS


STEP #1


The easiest way to make the pops is to place the yogurt into a bowl and add the juice.  Give it a good stir.


STEP #2


Taste a little bit and decide if you want to add some honey.  I don't like my treats super sweet, so I did not add it.

STEP #3


Pour in to a small disposable cup or reusable pop container.  If you're using cups, let them freeze for an hour before you put the stick in them.
Return to the freezer for 3 more hours.  If you use a reusable container, freeze them for 4 hours.



You can eat them as soon as you take them out of the freezer or put in a bowl for 10 minutes and eat with a spoon.  If you use a mold like I sit, let them sit for 5 minutes or run them under cold water to loosen the pops.
