Today we have the lovely Jenny from The Southern Institute joining us. Can I tell you how many times I’ve wished I lived in the same town as this girl? She’s always whipping up something delicious to eat (remember the cake pops from last year’s Color Your Summer series?), cranks out super cute projects (love this tank dress and this tutorial for attaching bias tape to an arm hole), seems to effortlessly make everyday life special (check out this sweet mini cake bunting) and, as a mama of picky eaters (UGH!), I lo-ove her “Meals Kids Eat” series (GENIUS). I also love Jenny’s encouraging, gracious personality- can’t wait to our plans to meet up ‘in real life’ happen someday!

Good news- Jenny is here today sharing her drool-worthy kiwi crème popsicles. Seriously- how fabulous do these look?

Hello, kojo friends!  I’m am over the moon excited to be back again this year for Color My Summer.  This is such a rockin’ series.  Last year I tackled all of the colors of the rainbow with cake pops.  This year I’m sticking with one beautiful color, green.  For some reason, as soon as I started thinking green my mind drifted to food… green food… kiwi, to be exact.  I love kiwi!  It’s one of my favorite fruits and it just screams summer to me.  I thought I’d pair kiwi with one of my other favorite summery things- popsicles.  They are a match made in heaven, let me tell you!  Let’s get started, shall we?


There are two parts to this recipe… the kiwi and the creme.  
For kiwi puree
7-8 kiwi fruit
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
Peel and quarter the kiwi fruit…
Puree kiwi in a food processor or blender…
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan.  
Allow to cool, then combine with the kiwi puree.
For the creme
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup low fat greek yogurt
1 cup heavy cream
Whisk together sugar, yogurt and cream.
To make the popsicles
  • Pour a layer of creme mixture in the bottom of the popsicle mold, cover and put in the freezer to freeze.
  • Add a layer of kiwi puree and partially freeze, until it is firm, but not solid.
  • Insert the popsicle sticks 2/3 of the way into the kiwi, or until they hit the solid creme layer.
  • Repeat the creme layer, filling just short of the top of the mold.  Freeze completely.


Thank you so much for having me, ladies!  I hope that you get the chance to try these fruity pops.  They are so easy to make and create smiles a mile wide.  Come by The Southern Institute for more recipes, tutorials and fun… see you there!

  2. I know my comment comes very late but I love these! I Gonna try to make some today.. I’m just wondering if anyone knows where to get this shape of molds from? Mine are round and don’t work very well.

    1. Linda, I saw some at Cost Plus World Market that are ‘popsicle’ shaped… I wonder if several other stores will carry the popsicle shaped ones as summer approaches?
