Are kiwi watermelon ice lollies vegan?

Watermelon ice lollies can easily be made vegan. We have made ours using honey, but you can replace the honey with maple syrup and they’re completely vegan.

There are no other additives, just the fruits themselves blended with water.

How to make watermelon ice lollies?

Making homemade watermelon ice lollies is very simple.

You simply blend your fruits, one at a time, with your honey or maple syrup.

So for these layered kiwi watermelon ice lollies you would blend the watermelon first with some honey or maple syrup and spoon it into ice lolly moulds and place them in the freezer.

You would then blend the kiwi with the honey and spoon that in over the watermelon layer. And that’s it you’ll have a 2 layered watermelon ice lolly.

Ingredients

Watermelon layer

  • 320 grams watermelon – pips removed
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup

Kiwi layer

  • 180 grams kiwi
  • 2½ tbsp honey or maple syrup

 

Instructions

  1. Remove the seeds of the watermelon and blend with your honey or maple syrup in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Take your 6 ice lolly moulds and pour the watermelon mixture into each one, filling them until they are about ⅔ full.
  3. Place them in the freezer for 30 minutes or more, until slightly firm.
  4. Rinse your mixer and then blend the kiwi with your honey or maple syrup, to make the second layer.
  5. When your ice lollies are ready, remove them from the freezer and pour in the remaining third of the height with the kiwi mixture.
  6. Pop the sticks in the ice lollies, and the tops on and freeze for 2 hours or overnight.

Blend your kiwi

Mix your kiwi slices with your honey or maple syrup and blend until smooth.
