  1. In a blender, puree watermelon and sugar in batches until smooth and strain into a medium bowl. Cover and freeze until the watermelon puree is slushy, but not solid, about 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Remove from freezer and stir well. Add blueberries and stir.
  3. Divide the pureed watermelon among twelve 5-oz disposable cups, leaving about a 1/2 inch from the rim. Place the cups in freezer for 2 hours, or until puree is solid.
  4. Spoon approximately 2 tablespoons of the yogurt into each watermelon cup, and smooth the top.
  5. Cover each cup with plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the center of each piece of plastic wrap.
  6. Insert a popsicle stick into each pop so that it almost reaches the bottom of the cup.
  7. Freeze overnight, or until solid. The pops can be frozen for up to 2 days.
  8. When ready to serve, peel the cup off the pop. Serve immediately.
