Such and easy to make and healthy summer dessert!
Kiwis, bananas, strawberries, peaches, mangoes, melon. (Feel free to experiment with various types of fruit. Apples or plums…no…).
Pure dark chocolate for melting.
Popsicle sticks (or even sticks from a tree!)
Make sure you have enough space in the freezer to place all popsicles without them touching each other or any other kind of food.
Peel kiwi (or another kind of fruit) and slice it in thick enough slices to that you can insert a popsicle stick in each slice or kiwi and place on a tray (lined with parchment paper).
Freeze the kiwis for about 3 hours or overnight.
Melt the pure dark chocolate using a double boiler over a medium heat. For a vegan version, add a bit of water and coconut oil to it. For a regular version, add some milk and butter. Go slowly and watch for signs of burning, and keep stirring continuously.
Dip each frozen kiwi into the chocolate; the chocolate layer should harden immediately around the fruit.
Place back into the freezer for half an hour before serving.
For a bit of a nutty twist:
don’t freeze the fruit, just insert the sticks, and set them aside. Prepare your favorite nutty mix: walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, flax seeds, sesame seeds. Melt the chocolate and after dipping into the warm chocolate, immediately dip in the nut mix. Set aside on parchment paper. When all pieces of fruit are dipped in choclate and covered in nuts, freeze for at leats 4 hours or overnight. .
