KIWIFRUIT POPSICLES (KIWI POPS)

These are delicious, not necessarily healthy but wonderful for a once in a while treat. Who would have known that frozen kiwifruit (kiwi) was so good?! I tried this with frozen banana pieces and pineapple chunks as well but they didn't even come close to the kiwi pops!

For maximum health benefits use a good dark chocolate with cocoa content of 65 percent or higher. "Flavanoids in cocoa beans have antioxidant effects that reduce cell damage implicated in heart disease. Flavanoids — which are more prevalent in dark chocolate than in milk chocolate or white chocolate — also help lower blood pressure and improve vascular function. In addition, some research has linked chocolate consumption to reduced risks of diabetes, stroke and heart attack." (mayoclinic.com)

Kiwifruit is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, fiber and once again flavonoids. (Fruitsandveggiesmorematters.com)
 
KIWIFRUIT POPSICLES (KIWI POPS)
adapted from show food chef
Makes 12

3 kiwi, peeled
6 ounces dark chocolate (6 squares), 65% or higher cocoa content
1/2 cup coconut oil
Cut each peeled kiwifruit into 4 round disk shapes, so you have a total of 12 disks from the three kiwifruit. Insert a popsicle stick into the kiwi disks.
Place on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and freeze for a few hours or until frozen.

Now melt the chocolate and the coconut oil in a double boiler. If you don't have one just fill a pan with about 1 inch of water and bring to a simmer, set a metal bowl or another pan over the pan simmering with water and melt the chocolate and oil in the bowl/pan making sure not to let water or steam touch the chocolate. Stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted. Turn off heat.


Take the frozen kiwi popsicles out of the freezer and dip each one in the chocolate.
 It will harden almost immediately so you can hold in in your hand, rotating until the chocolate is set and dried.
 
 Set on a serving plate and continue for all popsicles.
 
You can eat immediately or refreeze.
A bitter cold day today; stuck inside...so we made a maze with masking tape for the cars and monster trucks...
