Kiwi-Watermelon Pops

When purchasing for kiwifruits, select ones that yield to gentle pressure. If the fruit is not quite ripe, let it stand at room temperature for a day or two.

Prep Time: approx. 25 mins.       Freeze: at least 5 hours


1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
8 5 ounce paper cups
8 wooden frozen-dessert sticks
8 kiwifruits, peeled and cut-up


In a small bowl combine the water and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. In a blender combine watermelon cubes and 1 tablespoon of the sugar-water mixture. Cover and blend until smooth. Divide mixture among paper cups. Cover tops of paper cups with foil. Cut a slit in the center of the foil on each cup; insert a wooden stick through each slit, approx. halfway into the mixture. Place cups on a small baking sheet. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours or until thick and slushy.

In a blender combine kiwifruits and the remaining sugar-water mixture. Cover and blend until smooth. Remove foil from paper cups. Pour kiwifruit mixture evenly over watermelon layer in cups. Freeze for at least 4 hrs.

To serve, peel away paper cups
