Labor day weekend is coming up and what perfect time to make some homemade popsicles for the long weekend?
Do you have any plans for the weekend? We usually just hang out in the backyard enjoying the weather, grilling, and the kids in the kiddie pool.
Oh how I cannot wait for a real pool in a few years. You will literally find me there all day, every day in the summer time.
Anyway, let’s get to these triple melon yogurt pops.
As the name suggests, grab your three melons from the store – watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew – you’ll need 2 cups of each and a carton of plain Greek Yogurt.
To make this recipe super easy, you can buy the pre-cut, packaged melons.
Grab your blender and process the watermelon, lemon juice, sugar, and yogurt in the blender until smooth. Pour into a popsicle mold until 1/3 full.
Place in the freezer for 2 hours until firm.
Rinse the blender repeat the process with the honeydew melon until smooth. Pour over the firm watermelon mixture until 2/3 full and place a popsicle stick into the center of the mold.
Place back into the freezer for another 30 minutes.
Rinse the blender again and repeat with the cantaloupe mixture until smooth. Pour over the honeydew to the top of the mold.
Cover and freeze for an additional 2 hours or until fully solid. Serve and enjoy!
I guarantee if you make a batch of these, the kiddos will devour them before the weekend is even over. Plus, they’ll be more than happy enjoying a healthy-er popsicle.
