package (3 oz) lime-flavored gelatin
cup cold water, divided
cup ice cubes, divided
package (3 oz) watermelon-flavored gelatin
tablespoon miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
cartons (6 oz) Yoplait® Yogurt French Vanilla
Mix 1/3 cup sugar and lime gelatin mix in medium bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to 1/2 cup cold water to measure 3/4 cup. Add to lime gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted. Refrigerate 30 min.
Meanwhile, repeat Step 1 using watermelon gelatin mix and omitting the refrigeration step. Pour 2 Tbsp of the watermelon gelatin into each of the 16 (3-oz) paper cups. Freeze 20 min (no more, no less!). Stir 1/2 tsp mini chocolate chips into gelatin in each cup so that they are somewhat evenly spaced.
Spoon an additional 2 tbsp yogurt into the cups on top of the red gelatin mixture. Freeze for another 10 minutes. Then gently pour 2 tbsp. of the lime gelatin mixture on top of the yogurt layer in each cup. Insert a stick into each cup, then freeze for 3 hours or until frozen.

I want to eat these Watermelon Popsicles every day this summer. These healthy popsicles are made with fresh watermelon, strawberries, and lime juice and are seriously the most refreshing thing on a hot summer day. They rank up there as my favorite frozen treats along with these Creamy Chili Mango Popsicles this Two Ingredient Watermelon Ice Cream.
These Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles are going to be your go-to frozen treat this summer because there really is nothing better than watermelon on a hot day. Lately, we have been going through an obscene amount of watermelon in our house. Everyone loves it and as soon as I begin to cut it, half of it immediately disappears from the cutting board, as hands reach in from all directions to grab it. So that's been inspiring me to think about other ways to utilize watermelon and popsicles was one of the first things I thought of.
Plus, let's have a minute of real talk. My two year old daughter has been demanding freeze pops daily ever since she had her first one last week. Not nicely asking for freeze pops, demanding them and proceeding to melt down if the answer is no. Oh, the lovely two year old tempers.
But given that most freeze pops are nothing more than water, sugar, and a bunch of food coloring, it's not really what I want her eating. So I have been making all kinds of homemade healthy and more natural options using these freeze pop molds. And this strawberry watermelon popsicle has been the most popular. She is happy she is getting a popsicle and I am happy it's a fairly healthy option. Honestly, I don't even put any honey in them unless the watermelon really isn't ripe. The strawberries add plenty of sweetness and as long as your choose a good watermelon, you don't need it.
Speaking of watermelon, a lot of people are unsure of how to buy one. If you aren't sure, use the tips below to make sure you get a ripe and flavorful watermelon. It makes all the difference in these popsicles and ensures they are brimming with flavor.

Sherbet Watermelon Freezer Pops
Puree watermelon and sugar in batches in your blender or food processor until smooth and strain into a medium bowl. Cover and freeze until puree is slightly slushy, but not quite solid, about 2 to 3 hours. Remove from freezer, stir well and add in chocolate chips.
Place twelve 5-ounce disposable cups in a shallow baking pan and spoon watermelon puree into cups, leaving about a 1/2 inch left from the rim. Place pan in freezer for 2 hours, or until puree is solid, but not rock hard.
Allow lime sherbet to soften a bit, then spread over top of each portion of watermelon puree so that it comes up to the edge of the cup.
Smooth sherbet with the back of a spoon and cover each cup with plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the center of each cup and insert a popsicle stick into each pop so that it almost reaches the bottom of the cups.
Freeze until solid (about 6-8 hours or overnight).
Allow pops to sit at room temperature for about a minute, then gently pull out from the cups -- enjoy!
