Kiwi Ice Pops

Its Summer time here in UK..is it really? Its June already and still waiting for good and bright sunny days...like it should be during Summer. Last week was so bright and sunny and hot..the temperature raised till 28° C and when we were all so happy and excited to see those sunny days we had been waiting for..it lasted only for 3-4 days and now its rainy and the temeprature has gone down to 14°C :( People living in these European countries are blessed with only few counted weeks of summer.And we try our best to enjoy it and make the most of it. So, last week, when it was hot and sunny, I made these Kiwi ice pops. My kid loved these and has been asking me to make more. The green colour of these ice pops will definitely attract kids.


KIWI ICE POPS

Ingredients:
4 kiwi fruit,
1 cup sugar,
1 3/4 cup water,
1 kiwi-sliced and
juice of 1 lime.

Method:
In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of water and the sugar to boil and keep aside to cool. Peel the kiwi fruit, cut them into quarters and remove the white core and the black seeds from all the pieces. Now place the seeded kiwis in a food processor and puree the kiwis to a liquid. In a large bowl, combine the puree, the above sugar syrup, lime juice and the remaining 3/4 cup of water. Stir well and pour this mixture into molds and freeze until they begin to set. place a slice of Kiwi on the top and insert a stick and freeze again for 5-6 hours or overnight.
For easy unmolding, dip the molds briefly in hot water and holding the stick , pull out carefully.

Note:
If molds are not available, disposable plastic cups can also be used(as I did). Actually the paper cups are more convenient and its always easy to unmold from paper cups, than ice molds.
