Cantaloupe & Lime Frozen Yogurt Pops

The ultra-sweetness of ripe, in-season melon meets the tang of lime and Greek yogurt in these fruity, creamy pops. Don’t have ice pop moulds? No problem! Use small, disposable plastic or paper cups! Fill the cups as you would the molds, then cover each cup with aluminum foil. Carefully cut a slit in the center of each foil lid. Place an ice pop stick through each slit (the foil will help keep the sticks upright) and freeze. Read more »
