The key to these better-for-you treats is to use sweet, ripe watermelon and peaches. Standard ice cube trays will work if you don’t have pop molds—insert pop or craft sticks after 1 1/2 hour of freezing. Prepare this refreshing snack or dessert up to a week ahead.
2 cups seeded and diced fresh watermelon (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
1 cup peeled and diced fresh peaches (about 2 medium peaches)
1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Process watermelon, peaches, yogurt, honey, lime juice and cinnamon in a blender.
Pour mixture into 12 (2-ounce) pop molds. Freeze 6 hours. Prep: 20 min. Chill: 6 hr. Yield: 12 (2-ounce) pops
