You will love this fresh kiwi mojito popsicles recipe! You can make these with or without rum — so delicious!
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup rum (optional)
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
- 5–6 kiwi, peeled
- In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low, and add mint leaves. Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then strain out mint leaves, and pour the strained syrup into a blender. Add the rum, fresh lime juice, and about 4 whole kiwis, and pulse until blended. (If you would like, you can strain the mixture again to remove the kiwi seeds, but it’s up to you!)
- Pour the mixture into small Dixie cups, and freeze for an hour (or more) until the top of the popsicles are frozen. Then slice the remaining kiwis to make thin coins, and use a knife to make a small slit in the center of each kiwi. Insert a popsicle stick into the slit, and then place the kiwis on top of each popsicle, pressing down just a little bit to be sure that it (just barely) sinks into the popsicle. Freeze until completely frozen.
