Watermelon Bars

Dish It Healthy - "Stay Fresh Fruit"

Ingredients

  • 1 small, seedless watermelon (about 1 pound of flesh), cubed
  • 3 teaspoons powdered gelatin, soaked in 3 1/2 tablespoons water
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons Calpico (Japanese non-carbonated soft drink)
  • 1 kiwi, diced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 tablespoon honey

Steps

  1. Place watermelon in a zip top bag and pound with a rolling pin. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the gelatin.
  2. Pour mixture into popsicle molds, filling almost to the top. Add chocolate chips, then lightly mix with chopsticks to disperse chips. Insert a popsicle stick and place in freezer until set.
  3. Once hardened, pour a small amount of Calpico into each opening, and return to freezer.
  4. Add kiwi, water and honey in a blender. Blend until combined. Pour a layer of the kiwi mixture into the molds, and freeze until set.
  5. Submerge the mold in warm water until popsicles easily slide out. Enjoy!
