Yogurt Watermelon Popsicles with MintYogurt Watermelon Popsicles with MintI’m keeping it short and sweet today, folks. Got places to be, people to see, and grillin’ to do. Labor Day weekend is here and it’s time to snack and be outside (if the weather holds up!).

Almost every morning I have yogurt before going off to work. Sometimes I snack on a tub before bed too. It’s tasty and doesn’t make me feel fat, ya know? So I tend to eat a lot of it. And since it’s such a big part of my diet, I thought it would be cool to make frozen yogurt pops. But I wasn’t comfortable just throwing plain old yogurt into a mold and calling it a day. Nope. Thought went into this recipe! The goal was to make it look and taste like summer. After grabbing some juicy watermelon from the fridge (seriously, what’s more quintessentially summer than watermelon?) I chose to go to my garden for the next ingredient. Fresh mint. It’s unexpected, colorful, and tastes bright but earthy at the same time. Mixed in with the creamy yogurt, you really feel like you’re eating something decadently adult. But these guys are healthy and good for all ages. The bursts of icy watermelon are really nice too. It gives some texture to the pops.

So yeah…

Popsicles are fun. They’re easy to make (which is awesome, cause this blogger has been busy lately), super versatile, and refreshing on a summer day. Oh and they’re usually pretty healthy too. And you can’t beat their portability…who doesn’t love being able to snack in a pool? haha.

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

 

6 oz watermelon

8 oz vanilla Greek yogurt

4 mint leaves

1 tablespoon honey

 

Dice the watermelon into small cubes.

Finely chop the mint.

In a medium bowl, fold all the ingredients together until combined.

Spoon mixture into ice pop mold. Lightly knock it against your countertop (this allows the ingredients to settle; eliminating air bubbles).

Freeze for 3 hours, or overnight.

Rinse mold under warm water to release the popsicle.

Serve and enjoy!
