Happy first day of August!
How did August get here so fast? If you’re looking for a nice refreshing snack for the few hot summer days we have left, you’re in the right place! This is definitely one of my favorite summer snacks. My mom used to make these for me all the time when I was young. If you love watermelon you will love this recipe! Not only will you love eating them but you they are fun to make as well! Watermelon has always been one of my favorite fruits, not only is it tasty by itself but there are so many recipes out there that make this fruit even better!
This recipe will make 6 popsicles. Feel free to double (or triple!) the recipe for even more frozen treats!
- 3 Cups cubed watermelon
- 1/2 Cup Yogurt (Greek,or plain)
- 1 Tbs Lemon Juice
- 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 6 Popsicle Sticks
- In a blender combine the Sugar, watermelon, yogurt, and lemon juice
- Blend it all together until it is perfectly smooth.
- Next pour the mixture into popsicle molds and insert sticks.
- Put into the refrigerator and freeze for about 4 hours (or overnight) until firm and frozen all the way through.
- Best part of all ENJOY these nice cooling treats
A finished mini pudding pie.
This dessert is fun, serving sized and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg in money or time. In fact they only take half an hour to make For the pie crust I like to use the recipe found at http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Pie-Crust/ . It comes out a little salty though, so I take the salt out of the recipe. To make these cute little pies, you will need:
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of white sugar
1/2 a cup of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of milk
2 cups of milk
2 packages of one type of no cook pudding
1 muffin tin
2 mixing bowls
First mix the two cups of milk with the two packages of pudding in one of the mixing bowls. This will make the pudding very thick. Put it in the fridge to chill.
Next preheat the oven to 400 and follow the directions for the pie crust recipe. Instead of pressing the pie crust into a pie pan, press it into each of the holes of the muffin pan around the bottom and sides. Put the muffin pan in the oven and let the crusts cook for fifteen minutes. After the fifteen minutes are up take them out and put them in the freezer for five minutes, to cool down.
When the crusts have cooled down take them out. Also take the pudding out of the fridge. Spoon the pudding into the mini crusts. Either serve them then, or put put them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them later. Enjoy!
