Lemon Meringue Pie Pops

1 box (4-serving size) lemon instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free lemon burst yogurt
7 tablespoons coarsely crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup marshmallow creme

In medium bowl, beat pudding mix and half-and-half with whisk 2 minutes. Beat in lemon juice and yogurt. Pour generous 1/3 cup mixture into each of 7 (5-oz) paper cups. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer's directions.) Freeze about 4 hours or until frozen.

When ready to serve pops, beat whipping cream and marshmallow creme with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Remove each pop from cup. Spread top of each with about 2 tablespoons marshmallow mixture, forming meringue peaks.

Summertime is well and truly here - and it is HOT. There are a hundred ways to cool down when that summer sun gets working. You could head for the beach or the pool or stand in sprinklers, or hide inside all day with the A/C cranked, and set a glacier as your desktop background - mind over matter. Or you can grab a frozen treat! You just can't beat an ice pop or a frozen yogurt, or ANYthing chilly to eat when the front yard is literally melting in front of your eyes. How about a cherry pineapple paleta, or a blueberry cheesecake popsicle, or a lemon meringue pie pop? I'd rather have a bowl of Reese's peanut butter ice cream than deal with screaming kids at the local pool any day - and now you can too!
