The Amazing Paper Cup and Watermelon Ice Pops

Small paper cups make perfect molds for deliciously easy frozen treats. All you really need are wooden Popsicle sticks, aluminum foil, small paper cups, and the yummy stuff to put in the cups.

Frozen mini yogurt pops and watermelon ice popsicles are two kid-approved recipes around our house that are especially welcome during the summer months.

To Make Watermelon Ice Pops, You Will Need:

2 1/2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1/4 cup sugar, if desired for extra sweetness

Put watermelon and sugar in a blender or food processor. Mix until you get a fairly smooth consistency, Pour into paper cups. Cover tops of each cup with aluminum foil, sealing edges around the cup. Make a small slit in the foil and insert a wooden pop stick. Freeze until solid.

Remove foil, tear away the paper cup and enjoy!

To Make Mini Frozen Yogurt Pops You Will Need:

8 ounce paper cups
Yogurt and/or summer fruit like watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe
aluminum foil
wooden popsicle sticks

Divide the yogurt into paper cups. Get creative and add ingredients like sprinkles, chocolate chips, and small pieces of fruit. You could also layer different flavors of yogurt in the cup.

Cover the top of each cup with a piece of the aluminum foil- seal edges around the cup. Make a small slit in the foil and insert a wooden pop stick. Freeze at least 8 hours {and no more than 3 days.}

Remove foil and then tear the paper cup away from the Popsicle {my kids loved this part for some reason}

Enjoy!
