Directions

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely freshly grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1 drop green food coloring, (optional)
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and very thinly sliced

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Pour water into a small saucepan, add sugar, lime zest and ginger. Stir over high heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.

Step 2

Strain the syrup through a fine sieve set over a bowl. Stir in lime juice and food coloring, if using.

Step 3

Line 8 individual frozen-treat molds or small (2-ounce) paper cups with slices of kiwi, pressing them onto the sides so they are close together but not overlapping. Fill each mold or cup with the lime mixture.

Step 4

Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour. Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.
