  1. 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.
  2. Strain the syrup through a fine sieve set over a bowl. Stir in lime juice and food coloring, if using.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Very flavorful I really enjoyed these pops. The recipe only made six, but it could depend on the molds you use. The ginger flavor in the background is what really made these pops. 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.
