Learn how to make healthy watermelon kiwi popsicles as a delicious summer treat for both kids and adults. These homemade fruit popsicles are made using a combination of fresh watermelon and kiwi along with coconut milk for a tasty summertime treat.


Fruit pops are easy to make at home. These homemade fruit pops are naturally sweetened with stevia rather than sugar. They are made with real fruit by layering watermelon, creamy coconut milk and kiwi in a popsicle mold so they look like little watermelon slices. While chocolate chips serve as the watermelon seeds.


Popsicles are a summer staple. I remember on hot days, my mom would have popsicles for my brother and me and usually a few kids from the neighborhood when the ice cream truck visited our street. They were a great way to cool off in the heat of summer.


Even though I’m an adult now and my son is grown, I’m still partial to a good fruit popsicles recipe on hot days. They are refreshing and make a great dessert or snack. Instead of buying pops at the store that are full of sugar and artificial flavors and colors, I make my own homemade popsicles.


These watermelon kiwi popsicles are really easy to make, too. They do have three steps to make them, but you can take your time making them. I just keep my blender out and rinse it between steps, so it really doesn’t take much time to make watermelon ice pops.


While you could just make these watermelon popsicles all one color and they would be refreshing and delicious, I like the layered look. The pink is watermelon, the white rind is creamy coconut and the green layer is kiwi. I also added some chocolate chips to look like watermelon seeds.


These watermelon kiwi popsicles are a healthy summer snack. They are made with real fruit and made without preservatives or refined sugar.

What Can I Do With Too Much Watermelon?


Watermelon is best in the summer when it’s in season, but sometimes I buy one with good intentions and then don’t eat as much plain as I think I will. That’s when I use it in recipes like these watermelon coconut milk popsicles. If you have watermelon to use up, here are some ideas:


  • Make a watermelon jicama salad recipe.
  • Grill it as a summer treat at barbeques.
  • Freeze it to make smoothies or watermelon ice pops.
  • Use frozen watermelon as ice cubes for drinks.

Ingredients


  • 3 1/2 Cups Seedless watermelon
  • 1 Cup Coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon juice
  • 6 medium size Kiwis
  • 1 Tablespoon Chocolate chips
  • 3 Teaspoons Stevia

Instructions


Squeeze a lemon to extract the juice and set aside.
After you remove seeds from the watermelon, blend it and add 2 teaspoons of stevia and the lemon juice. Blend until pureed. It will be foamy.
Pour it into 10 of the popsicle molds and fill about ⅔ full. Then add chocolate chips to each mold and use a spoon to gently push the chocolate chips down to create faux seeds.
Place the lid on the popsicle mold and add the popsicle sticks. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
After a few hours, whisk the coconut milk and 1 teaspoon of stevia.
Remove the popsicles from the freezer and divide the creamy coconut layer evenly between each mold. You’ll add about 4 teaspoons to each pop. Freeze for another hour.
Prepare the final layer. Peel the kiwi and blend in a blender until pureed.
Remove the popsicles from the freezer and pour the kiwi layer on top. Divide it evenly between all of the fruit pops. Freeze for another hour.
To unmold your healthy watermelon popsicles, run the mold under warm water for 15 to 20 seconds. Gently pull on the stick to unmold. If they don’t release, run under water for a few more seconds.
