Watermelon Ice Pops Recipe

What better way to celebrate summer than with these fun, healthy ice pops that are gluten free and heart healthy? Frozen fruit pops are easy to make and fun to eat. 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

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.
