Method

Watermelon Layer

  1. Add the watermelon, half of the sugar, and the lemon juice into a blender and blend until smooth. Take off foam.
  2. Pour into popsicle moulds, until they are about two-thirds full. We made 12, but you might find you have leftover liquid. Just adjust the recipe next time you make it!
  3. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over your popsicle moulds, pushing them down into the moulds to be the 'seeds' in your watermelon.
  4. Insert popsicle sticks (this recipe only works with 'open' sticks' i.e. no cover on the bottom.
  5. Freeze for 3 hours.

White Layer

  1. Whisk coconut milk with remaining sugar until sugar has dissolved. Chill.
  2. Once the mixture is thick and cold, pour a layer into each of your popsicles.
  3. Return to freezer for 30-45 minutes.

Rind Layer

  1. Blend kiwi fruit together in processor until smooth. If your fruit isn't that ripe, you can add additional sugar here. You can also run this mixture through a strainer if your children have an issue with the texture of the seeds.
  2. Chill mixture, and once cool fill the popsicle moulds up the rest of the way with this mixture.
  3. Return to freezer for about 2-3 hours, or until solid.
