Watermelon Freezer Pops  

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven

Tired of the summer heat wave? Chill out with the perfect frozen treat!


Tis the season for watermelon.

And freezer pops.

So of course, it only makes sense that you should make these Watermelon Freezer Pops!  These definitely kick the idea of freezer pops to an entirely new level.

Made from simple gelatin and yogurt, these cute little pops begin with a layer of lime gelatin, topped with French vanilla yogurt, and then topped with the bright red watermelon layer and some sweet little surprises for “seeds."

Definitely a fun dessert that kids and adults will love, and there is no ice cream maker required!  Just a simple, adorable and festive popsicle recipe to celebrate a favorite fruit of the season.  Cheers to the amazing watermelon!!!

Here's how to make a batch of your own:

First, mix up a batch of watermelon gelatin.  Spoon about 2 Tbsp gelatin into each 3 oz cup, and then freeze the cups for 20 minutes.  (Be sure not to forget about them in the freezer – after 20 minutes they start to really get solid!)

Once 20 minutes has passed, pull them back out and stir about ½ tsp mini chocolate chips into each cup.  Refreeze for a bit longer.

Then it comes time for the easiest layer – Yoplait French Vanilla yogurt.  No mixing required!  Just spoon an additional 2 Tbsp yogurt on top of the watermelon layer after it has refrozen for a bit.

And give it a little shake to make sure that the yogurt evens out.

Then top with the final layer – lime gelatin!  And of course, finish it off with a stick for lickin'.

Freeze for about 3 hours or until firm.  Once you’re ready to serve, pull out a cup and run the sides of it under warm water for a few seconds, and then the popsicle should “pop” (ha!) right out!

Enjoy the watermelon deliciousness!!!
