Fig and Honeydew Pops

We have quite a bit of pop season left here in Florida but this recipe is coming in just under the wire for some of you. Enjoy a few icy treats while you still can. I'll waste no time with paragraphs - let's chill.

1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
3 cups diced honeydew melon* 
6 figs, sliced
3 tbsp honey
juice of one lime
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

*I used an orange flesh honeydew - it's like regular honeydew with a hint of citrus!

  • Process melon and yogurt until smooth. 
  • Add honey and lime juice. Pulse a few times to combine. 
  • Stir in coconut flakes. 
  • Distribute fig slices amongst popsicle molds and top with honeydew mixture.
  • Freeze until solid - if you can stand it, just let them freeze over night. (If necessary, straighten pop sticks after one hour or use tin foil caps with slits to hold sticks in place.)

Makes 8 sm/md pops.
