It's easy to make these cool, two-layer pops. Simply process one melon with juice, pour into a mold or cup. Let it freeze until slightly firm, then top with the other layer of melon and juice. Each pop has less than 40 calories per serving and provides vitamin C and B vitamins from the cantaloupe and honeydew.
