1 small seedless watermelon, cubed (about 1 pound of flesh)

1 tablespoon powdered gelatin, soaked in 3 1/2 tablespoons water 

Mini chocolate chips 

4 tablespoons Calpico (Japanese non-carbonated soft drink) 

1 kiwi, peeled and diced 

2 tablespoons water

3/4 tablespoon honey 


Special equipment:
a popsicle mold
  1. Place the watermelon in a zip top bag and pound with a rolling pin. Transfer to a bowl and stir with the gelatin.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, filling almost to the top. Add chocolate chips, then lightly stir with chopsticks to disperse the chips. Insert a popsicle stick into each bar and freeze until set. 
  3. Once hardened, pour a small amount of Calpico over each bar and freeze. 
  4. Place the kiwi, water and honey in a blender. Blend until combined. Pour a layer of the kiwi mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze until set. 
  5. Submerge the mold in warm water until popsicles easily slide out. Enjoy!
