I bought these popsicle molds a year ago and finally decided to try them. I wasn’t a big fan of honeydew until I had the Korean melon pop. It’s a creamy honeydew flavored popsicle, refreshing and perfect on a hot day.
Yesterday my mom gave me some honeydew so I decided to make my version. When I took a bite, it felt like being sprinkled with cool water on a hot day.
It’s simple and delicious! The hardest thing was waiting for them to freeze.
I bought these from Bed, Bath and Beyond. They come with sipping straws attached to the base, which have been useless. These look cooler.
- 1/4 of a medium-sized honeydew melon
- 2 tsp of brown sugar
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1/2 cup of non-fat greek yogurt
Step 1: blend honeydew and set aside
Step 2: in a bowl, mix sugar, honey and yogurt
Step 3: pour honeydew mixture covering 80% of the mold
Step 4: evenly divide the yogurt mixture into each mold covering remaining 20%
Step 5: with a knife or stick (I used chopstick) swirl yogurt inside mold
Step 6: freeze for 4-5 hours

This semi-sorbet is a great way to celebrate the hot weather. It’s refreshing and easy to make. I don’t have a blender, but I do have the Ninja! It has such a hilarious name. I got it as a gift and use it for almost everything! I love it. I’m not sure how this recipe will work with an actual blender so you may not get a sorbet. Worst case you add some more juice and get a refreshing smoothie!
- 2 cups of frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
- 4-5 ice cubes
- 2-3 tablespoons of honey
- 1 cup of coconut water
It was hard to resist digging into it. So I didn’t. This was taken half way through my second serving so it started to melt.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

This is one of my favorite snacks and it’s so easy to make! You will have a delicious snack in under 10 minutes. Traditionally tahini is added, but I don’t really care for it. I never add it and I don’t miss it at all. If you don’t have pita, you can dip use veggies or even put it on some toasted bread. There are no preservatives and you can control the amount of salt added. You won’t buy hummus again!
