Melon Kiwi Pops

If you're looking for a healthy homemade treat for your kids this summer, here is one they're sure to love!  It's quick and affordable too.

3 cups cubed and seeded watermelon
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 kiwi fruit (peeled and each cut into 6 slices)
3 ounce paper cups (I use Dixie cups)
Freezer pop sticks

Combine watermelon, sugar, and lime juice in blender and blend at high speed until smooth.  Divide watermelon puree among 12 paper cups.  Place cups in a 9 x 13" baking pan.  Push wooden stick through the center of each kiwi slice about 1 1/2".  Place kiwi slice on top of each cup inserting the stick into the puree.  Freeze on a level surface until firm, at least 4 hours.

Peel away paper cups when ready to serve.
