Coconut Kiwi Popsicle & FOOD FIGHT: Ice Cream vs Fruit Pops

It’s the 1st of June and that means… FOOD FIGHT!!

Today, the fight is between Homemade Ice Cream and Fruit Pops!

As always, I’m bringing something to the fight! Delicious and refreshing Coconut Kiwi Fruit Pops!

 I love making fruit pops and since we live in FL, I make them a lot. Having 9 months of summer really brings out the need for frozen treats. There is also plenty of fruit to experiment.

My new favorite drink is coconut water and I’ve been a little obsessed with coconut water popsicles. They are light, refreshing and delicious. A batch of these pops is about 370-400 calories (depending on the amount of fruit in it) and there are 8 pops in the batch. This is definitely my new favorite popsicle and I can’t wait to share more with you!

Ice cream on the other hand, is still something I haven’t tried making myself. I have plenty of recipe inspiration for ice cream below, though!

Coconut Kiwi Popsicle & FOOD FIGHT: Ice Cream vs Fruit Pops

Ingredients

  • 16.9 oz container of coconut water
  • 4 tbs cream of coconut
  • 8 slices of kiwi
  • 1/2 cup chopped kiwi

Instructions

  1. Whisk coconut water and cream of coconut together.
  2. Separate the mixture between the popsicle molds but don't fill all the way up.
  3. Split the chopped kiwi between the molds (feel free to add more if you want).
  4. Slide the kiwi slices along a side of the popsicle mold that way it will stay to the side and look pretty!
  5. Cover the mold with saran wrap, tightly. Carefully stick the popsicle sticks in the center of each pop.
  6. Freeze for at least two hours.

    I wonder if you have heard of Bedloo. It is a voting site. I put one on my blog a couple of posts back when I was trying to decide on the finish for a table. You could do that with your treats to. It actually allows people the ability to vote right on your blog. It’s pretty cool actually. Check it out.
    I am certainly going to try those coconut kiwi pops! It has been hot here in FL the last few days. Hope this storm passes us by without incident! Stay safe!
