Kale-Berry-Melon Popsicles

Replace "no. of servings" of vegetables and fruits with "popsicles" of vegetables and fruits. How many "popsicles" of vegetables and fruits did you have today?

For me, personally, these kale ice pops (popsicles) are better than kale chips. I usually make smoothie out of kale and other fruits but decided to make some yogurt-based kale ice popsicles one day.

Cook's Note: Learn to read your yogurt label. Make sure the major components in your yogurt are Milk and Live Cultures. I do not like aspartame (and/or other sweeteners) in my yogurt. Honey is ok but other sweeteners, preferably not. Also, I do not like low-fat dairies (low-fat milk taste like water! don't you think so?). I enjoy my whole milk and plain whole milk yogurt. :) oops!

Organic Whole Milk Plain Yogurt (or Greek Yogurt)

The result is amazing!

Tip: To make it visually more pleasing and attractive, keep some raspberries whole and do not blend in the food processor/blender. Add these raspberries to the bottom of the popsicles molds, squirt some honey over these whole raspberries, before pouring in the yogurt-smoothie mixture. Then, freeze for at least 8 hours!

Summer is right here to enjoy cold treats. Or...there is always next summer :)
