Zespri Kiwi Ice-Pops: A Lazy Saturday Recipe

check out how to make kiwi ice-pops here!

Being in a house with no kitchen, there are only a few things that would make you do things you don't normally do. A bags of kiwis, a newly bought ice-bar maker from Daiso for only RM5 (comes in a set of 4 colorful "batang") and the craving to have your own ice-pop, old school style. I google how to make kiwi ice pops found a recipe and after 6 hours, smile sheepishly while sucking on my sour kiwi pops. It was a success!

kiwis is packed with Vitamin C

I have been loving kiwis since I was young. I owe my good looks thanks to it! ahem. You'd be surprise that kiwis not just taste good, they're also pack with Vitamin C, high in Anti-Oxidant, Fibre and great for us women to ward of bloating and that blocked feeling.

 a lazy Saturday afternoon turned cool

The original recipe of kiwi ice-pops can be found here. I changed it slightly because I don't have a kitchen, I didn't have limes so I opt for lemon instead which made my kiwi ice-pops a sourish fun slurp. Also I didn't want to add a cup of sugar because I want this to be as "fruitful" as possible.  The sugar water (syrup) stops the ice-pops from becoming too hard. You want it to be able to bite into it without having to chew through a block of ice. Also you can customized it, say if you don't want it to be too sourish, you can cut down on the lemon and add more sugar.

  • 1/2 bowl of hot Water
  • 2 spoonful of Sugar
  • 4 Kiwis
  • 1 cup Fresh Lemon Juice (2 Lemons)


Start by boiling hot water. Peel the kiwis and cut them up (any size, we're going to smash them anyway). Then leave them in a bowl. Prepare the fresh lemon juice by cutting the lemons into half, then squeeze them with all your might. You'll have a cup of lemon juice ready, be sure to throw away the seeds. Pour boiling water into a bowl, filling up half. Add two spoonful of sugar (or a few spoonfuls if you want it to be sweeter). Stir and set aside to cool.

Smash your kiwis with a spatula or your hand. I used my clean hands to smash them into pulp. Then pour in lemon juice and sugar water. Stir again and pour mixture into ice-bar mold, put in the freezer for about 6 hours. Any excess you can pour into ice making trays to create kiwi ice, to drink with 7-up or Sprite!

Hope you like my blog post. Be sure to loosen the grip on the ice-bar makers by washing the bottom part with running water, so it loosens up. Then pull the holder to see your newly homemade kiwi ice-pops. Mine is super good, sourish and fun to suck at the same time. Pardon me! I sound so wrong *lol*.
