I’ve never really been much of a sweets person. Honest. I’m more of a savoury snacker. And rarely indulge in desserts*. I’m also not that big into fruit. And it’s not the low carb thing that’s made me that way – I’ve never really fancied fruit. But for some reason, when I saw this recipe from Civilized Caveman Cooking, it made kiwis look SO GOOD. But then life got in the way for a couple of days. It wasn’t until I was in the fruit n veg shop and I saw some kiwis that I thought – OoOoo.
So I sorta didn’t really follow the brilliant recipe. And my kiwi popsicles don’t look quite as pretty. But they are darn tasty. And perfect in this hot summer spanish sun!
*When I’m at home. But I’ve always give a look at the dessert menu at a restaurant. Usually I chose the cheese board these days though, if I’m still hungry!
Kiwi Sesame Popsicles
Melt your coconut oil if it’s solid. It’s certainly not solid here in my house! Yay! Saved me a step!
Mix together everything except the kiwi and sesame seeds.
Slice your kiwis and trim off the furry bit. I got 4 pieces from each kiwi (to give you an idea of how thick I sliced ’em)
Spread the sesame seeds on a plate.
Put the kiwi slices on the sticks and then dip them in the chocolate mixture. Then dip them on either side in the toasted sesame seeds.
Lay them on a plate with greaseproof paper and then stick them in the freezer or fridge. I did NOT use greaseproof paper which is why mine stuck to the plate. Do as I say, not as I do.
The first 5 looked pretty. The last 3 were a bit of a mess. It’s okay – I ate them before photographing!
