Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pour water into a small saucepan, add sugar, lime zest and ginger. Stir over high heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.

  • Strain the syrup through a fine sieve set over a bowl. Stir in lime juice and food coloring, if using.

  • Line 8 individual frozen-treat molds or small (2-ounce) paper cups with slices of kiwi, pressing them onto the sides so they are close together but not overlapping. Fill each mold or cup with the lime mixture.

  • Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour. Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.

I also ground up half of the kiwi with the rest of the ingredients and it gave the pop a more popsicle texture instead of an ice texture surrounding chunks of kiwi. Read More
