Watermelon Beetroot Yogurt Popsicle – A fun Summer treat

Hi friends, how is the summer treating you? Here in Texas,it’s terrible. So to cool us down a little bit from the heat waves I made these Watermelon Beetroot Yogurt Popsicles. 

Watermelon Beetroot Yogurt Popsicle

How are you spending the vacation with your kids?How do you engage them?We spend a month in India.Kids enjoyed playing with their cousins and attended marriage. It’s the first time they are being part of the Indian marriage. So it was very fun and everything looked new to them. When we came back, they missed all those fun.Still, I was trying to engage them with fun activities. My daughter loves arts and crafts. So it’s not hard to keep her engaged but my son is one super active kid. It’s hard to please him.


We enrolled them for swimming class.It’s twice a week. But what about other days? Hmmm, finally I came up with yarn crafts and bubbles came to my rescue. We were making bracelets, pom poms with yarn and having fun blowing bubbles on our patio.Being so hot,kids asked me to make some popsicle. Having watermelon in hand, I was thinking to make something interesting. That’s when I saw a half cut beetroot in the fridge. And Watermelon Beetroot Yogurt Popsicle was born.

How did I make Watermelon Beetroot Yogurt Popsicle

Making popsicles are not a big deal. But coming with right flavors are?Do you agree with me?When I tried this popsicle I was not sure how successful the flavor would be.But my son loved it at the first bite.I microwaved the beetroot, so they don’t have the raw smell.Then I blended beetroot and watermelon. It had the beautiful color which I loved.

I decided to make it a layer.So I blended yogurt in the same mixer I used to blend beetroot and watermelon which gave a beautiful pink color.The last layer was just the yogurt.I used honey as sweetening. You can use either honey or sugar.Then layer it in your popsicle mould. Make sure that the first layer is set before you pour the second layer. I didn’t had that patience,so you can’t see my second layer prominently.But who cares of the layers when one is interested in the taste of the popsicle.
