2. Watermelon Popsicles2 of 9
These are yummy crowd pleasers and they look just like mini slices of watermelon! A few extra steps will make these really "pop."

1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup canned coconut milk, shaken
6 medium kiwis, peeled
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips
Blend watermelon, sugar and lemon juice until pureed. Pour into 10 popsicle molds, making sure to not fill all the way.

During the last 30 minutes of freezing, whisk together coconut milk and 1.5 tablespoons of sugar until sugar dissolves. Chill for 30 minutes. Remove popsicles from freezer and add a tablespoon of the coconut milk underneath the watermelon layer. Chill for 45 more minutes. Blend kiwi with 2 tablespoons of sugar until pureed. Remove seeds with a mesh strainer. Chill kiwi mixture for 30 minutes. Remove popsicles from freezer and add 1 tablespoon of kiwi mixture on top of the coconut layer. Freeze for 3 more hours.
