Easy Melon Bar

melon bar with yogurt swirl

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.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 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

To Make:

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

Enjoy! 🙂

5 minute semi-Sorbet

May 4, 2011 § 2 Comments

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Step 1: Put all the ingredients in your blending device


Step 2: Serve and Eat! 🙂

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!

Easy Hummus

March 23, 2011 § 1 Comment


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!

add 2-3 cloves of garlic into food processor/blender

add 1 bunch of parsley (add more or less depending on taste)

drain 1 can of garbanzo beans and pour in food processor/blender

add juice of 1/2 a lemon, salt and pepper

blend

done!

pita bread to make pita chips

tear pita apart and put on electric grill till crunchy or bake for 9 mins @400 degrees

dip and eat! 🙂

Or eat it with some crusty bread.
