Kiwi Fruit Popsicles

Hi folks,

Good morning! :-)

Yesterday - inspired by our friend Advaita - I made kiwi fruit popsicle's for lunch dessert. Madhva really loved them! :-)

Kiwi fruit is packed full of the good stuff like vitamin C, Vitamin E, anti-oxidants, potassium, lutein, zeaxanthin and fiber - in short it is really great for your health. 

These popsicle's are simple to make, and would work with other fruits like strawberries too! I love the fact that they only contain 2 ingredients and are practically sugar free. :-)

3 medium firm kiwi's with a nice round shape
Approx 1/2 - 3/4 of a bar of 70% dark chocolate, broken up 
Wooden popsicle sticks

Melt chocolate in a double boiler (set on a pot of hot water). 

Wash kiwi's and peel carefully. Cut into thick slices - you will get 3-4 slices per kiwi.

Carefully insert a popsicle stick about 3/4 the way into each slice. Lay on paper towel and gently press another on top to absorb excess moisture from the kiwi slices on sticks.

Dip the kiwi's into the melted chocolate and set on a tray covered in grease proof paper. This can get a little messy so it's best to avoid getting excess chocolate on the kiwi's because it will just spread out around the kiwi. If you desire, you can add extra sprinkles, toasted almond pieces etc., onto the kiwi's while the chocolate is still liquid. :-)

When all the kiwi popsicle's are covered in chocolate, place in the freezer to set. They will be ready to eat within an hour.

These cute popsicle's make a lovely inexpensive Summer treat for the kids and adults alike! :-)
