Ingredients

  • 2 kiwi fruits or ½ cucumber*
  • 1 thick round/slice of watermelon

Instructions

  • If using kiwi fruit, peel the fruits and slice each one into three thick slices, discarding (or eating!) the rounded ends.  Using a circle cutter of a slightly smaller size than your push pop container, cut the kiwi slices into circles to fit.
  • If using cucumber, slice into thick rounds and cut into circles as above.
  • Pop one kiwi or cucumber slice into the bottom of each push pop container.
  • Push the pop container through the watermelon slice to fill it with a round of melon (see photo below).  If your watermelon slice is too thin to fill the container, repeat until the push pop container is completely full of melon.
  • Pop the lid on, remove the stick if you can and pop into the freezer for a couple of hours or overnight until frozen solid.
  • Remove from the freezer, add the stick back onto the push pop and serve.

Notes

NOTES: When I made this recipe the first time, I used slices of cucumber, but the second time I used kiwi fruit instead and my boys preferred the kiwi.  Both are equally refreshing!
