These Greek yogurt popsicles are easy to make, refreshing, and sure to please anyone. Combine the yogurt with watermelon or other fruit or berries and you will have a healthier kind of treat for hot summer days.

Watermelon Yogurt Popsicles

Homemade popsicles are something that makes my kids happy. Lemon, orange or lime popsicles, some made with berries and buttermilk or sour cream or these Greek yogurt popsicles with watermelon.

I decided to make some ice pops the other day after having some really heavy store-bought vanilla ice cream, which I didn’t really like. I remembered the freshness of fruit popsicles and found it was time to dust the molds and make some again.

Ingredients

I used what I had in the fridge:

  • A very thick slice of watermelon
  • Greek yogurt
  • Sour cream
  • An overripe banana that nobody would eat anymore.
  • The result was great, so good that I quickly wrote down the recipe afraid that I would forget it.
  • The amounts of sugar and honey are quite optional, you can take more or less, depending on how sweet you like things and on how sweet your banana is.
  • Same with the lemon juice, use more or less according to your taste.

Can you use other fruit?

Definitely.
Either watermelon or melon, like cantaloupe, different fruit brings different flavors.
Fresh, ripe peaches, nectarines or apricots are great as well. And why not try canned fruit, it works.
Try berries as well. I make these lollies with blueberries or strawberries on a regular basis. You can use either fresh or frozen berries.

How to make?

  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl
  • Blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Adjust the taste with more honey or lemon (or both).
  • Pour into molds.
  • Place the sticks inside.
  • Freeze.

Tips

  • You can replace the sour cream with more Greek yogurt or buttermilk.
  • You can use fruit yogurt instead of plain yogurt, preferably something that would match the flavor of the fruit or berries you are using.
  • To easily release the watermelon popsicles from the molds, run the molds under warm water.

This look like such a lovely combination of flavors. Today we’re expecting a high of 98ºF, so one of these would taste extra good!

Thank you, Rachel. You are lucky with the weather. 98 degrees are a lot but at least it feels like summer. What I miss most about Romania are the hot summers. What we normally have here in Germany doesn’t really qualify as summer.
