Once strained, you will want this to look like watermelon juice.

Fill cavities a little more than half full.

Add cocoa nibs if you’d like to make it look like there are seeds. Place in freezer for one hour

Mix together yogurt and sweeter. Pour mixture into the mold.

Remove molds from the freezer, add yogurt mix. Freeze for 45 mins then add kiwi.

Add the popsicle stick into each mold and let freeze until solid for a minimum of 4-5 hours.

Remove Watermelon pops by placing popsicle mold in warm water for a minute or two to loosen the popsicles to make it easy to remove. Do not fully submerge the mold. Only place in water until just under the top of the exposed pop.
