Will you believe it if I tell you that there was an age when I did not like ice creams? Yes, but luckily it was a long long time ago!!! Apparently I used to cry when standing outside a store and the people there would think I was crying for ice cream and tell my parents to buy me some, little did they know that I was saying "inikkyu ice cream venda (I don't want ice cream)".
My husband read this and gave me a funny look, one of utter disbelief (he has only seen the ice cream lover in me). Imagine if I had to call my parents for back up!!! He finally believed my story only after hearing it from my them :-).
That being said, the situation has been remedied…a lot. Coming to today's recipe, it is a summer dessert. I love fruit popsicles and this one is made with one of my favorite fruits, the kiwi. It is quite guilt free as it contains very little sugar. You can even skip the sugar if the fruit is sweet, but in my case the kiwis were too tart and needed some sweetening.
Kiwis – 4
Water – ½ cup
Sugar to taste
Puree the kiwis and keep aside. In a small pan, boil the water, add the sugar and simmer until it is completely dissolved. Let it cool a bit and add to the kiwi puree. Mix well and pour into desired molds and freeze.
If you do not have molds, you can pour it into cupcake liners. I used mini cupcake liners and these make really cute, bite sized popsicles. An added advantage…being small, you can enjoy 2 or even 3 at a time :-). Bon Appétit.
