Equipment

  • Popsicle molds and sticks

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs (950gms) ripe red seedless watermelon
  • 3 large ripe kiwi fruit
  • ½ tablespoon jam set or pectin

Instructions

  • Cut the rind and white off the watermelon and cut into large chunks.
  • Add to a food processor and blitz until smooth. Add the jamset and blitz until well combined.
  • Strain the watermelon, pressing down on the flesh with a spatula to push through the watermelon flesh but leaving behind any small seeds.
  • Pour into popsicle molds, leaving about a half inch (1.25cm) gap at the top. Add sticks. Freeze for about four hours, or until firm.
  • Peel the kiwi fruit and cut into chunks.
  • Add to food processor and blitz until smooth.
  • Strain the blitzed kiwi fruit to remove most of the black seeds.
  • Fill the remaining gap in the molds on top of the watermelon with kiwi fruit.
  • Freeze for about four hours, or until firm.

Notes

Jamset or pectin is available from some supermarkets, canning stores or online.  A little bit helps stop the icy lollies from separating.  You can leave it out if you prefer, but your ice lollies may separate as the freeze.
