Honeydew Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles
Honeydew Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles. Simple, refreshing, creamy and healthy. Made with just a few ingredients you and your kids will LOVE. Low in sugar with just a touch of vanilla and chunks of ripe honeydew melon.
- ½ whole Honeydew melon ripe or overripe
- 15 ounces coconut yogurt unflavored, unsweetened
- 3 drops liquid stevia
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup spring water
In a high-speed blender blast the stevia, vanilla, and coconut yogurt until well blended. Then set aside.
On a cutting board remove the seeds, and cut up the honeydew into tiny chunks. Then set aside.
Using a measuring cup, pour desired amounts of the yogurt mixture into each popsicle mold. Then tap the mold on the countertop a few times to even out the yogurt mixture and to reduce holes in your pops.
Then smush the melon into the molds. Each time you add a small round of melon, add along with it ¼ teaspoon water. Then smush the mixture together with your fingers. Do this until you have filled the popsicles to the top. The water is important. It binds the melon when it freezes.
Cover the mold. Add your sticks and put them in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours or overnight.
Once frozen, remove the mold from the freezer and rinse it with warm water to life the lid off. Rinse the sides and bottom of the mold with warm/hot water to loosen the pops from the molds. Store in the freezer for up to 4 months.
My favorite unsweetened and unflavored coconut yogurts are Anita's and Coyo. Both use very little sugar. If you cannot get access to those try Greek Yogurt or any other plantbased yogurt or regular yogurt of choice. If you choose to use a sweetened yogurt, eliminate the stevia. Know that using sweetened yogurt will not be considered workable for a low sugar & Candida diet. //
