Fresh Kiwi Popsicles


Just in case you haven't noticed, I'm totally into Popsicles lately. I've tried my hand at plenty of fruit and veggies pops, like these...


...and because I decided that having only 4 Popsicle molds wasn't enough, I thought I'd invest in some more. So I went to Amazon, and at Amazon, they are always so clever and tell you that if you buy three like products in a group, you will get a better deal, so, I was sucked in, and bought something I hadn't planned on purchasing...this...


(And because I'm clever, too, just know that you can buy this by clicking the link above.)

And can I tell you..... I'm so not sorry! I LOVE this book! I go to bed with it every night. I take it with me wherever I go, and I breastfeed with it! And I'm pretty sure, because of the inspiration that is flowing through me and in me, I'm going to declare June national Popsicle month and blog about Popsicles every day. We'll see.

Some of the recipes I want to try are Popsicle wonders such as peanut butter sesame raspberry Popsicles, wheat grass and orange Popsicles, and banana split Popsicles. And one of the loveliest Popsicles I came across were kiwi grape juice Popsicles. But because I didn't have all the ingredients the recipe called for, I devised my own version, and here it is. Enjoy!


Fresh Kiwi Popsicles

A tangy, refreshing treat!

See Fresh Kiwi Popsicles on Key Ingredient.


* 8 kiwis
* ½ to 1 cup of water
* ¼ cup honey
* Pinch salt


1. Peel all kiwis, then cut two into ¼ inch slices. Set aside.

2. Place all remaining ingredients in a blender, preferably a Vita-Mix, starting with 1/2 cup of water and adding more if needed, and blend until smooth.

3. Pour into molds, leaving a 1-inch space at the top.

4. Push two kiwi slices into each mold. Fill any remaining space with leftover kiwi mix.

5. Freeze for at least 6 hours. To release, run Popsicle molds under cool water for a few seconds, then gently pull out.

  1. Wow this is cute with the kiwi slice.
    Have to try one of these, hoping that my picky kid will like them.

  2. This Senior Citizen is still using 2 sets of Tupperware Popsicle makers from the 60s and 70s. I'm looking at the Zoku maker at Williams Sonoma too; $50 and it makes NINE before you have to freeze the base.

    I could make a batch a week @$1 each and that would pay for it. School's out now, but I am sure I could find some of my HS students willing to try one.

  4. These were AMAZING! So we bought the book!

  5. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
