Kids Birthday Party Kiwi Chocolate Popsicles!

During Summer these yummy Kiwi Chocolate Popsicle’s are the perfect treat for your kids birthday party! I stumbled upon this recipe and could not wait to share it as a Kids Birthday Party Idea!

If you’re wondering how much fruit is really in these chilly snack bars, take a good look. It’s literally a slice of kiwifruit that has been dipped in a very thin, but crispy coating of chocolate and coconut oil. Thats it, easy!

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Kiwi – peeled and cut in 1 inch thick rounds, with a popsicle stick in each round. Freeze on a tray in the freezer.
  2. 1 cup Chopped dark chocolate and 1/2 cup Coconut oil – melted over a double boiler, then cooled to room temp.
  3. Dip each Kiwi-pop into the chocolate mixture (it will immediately turn crispy) and place on a tray to refreeze or pass around right now.

One serving of KIWI:

  • contains the same amount of fiber as a BOWL of bran cereal.
  • contains the same amount of potassium as a banana
  • provides the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C

and…

Folate (good for pregnant women), Lutein (helps prevent age-related blindness), Zinc (healthy hair, skin, teeth), Vitamin E (antioxidant and immune system booster) AND…the enzyme found in green kiwifruit makes a natural meat tenderizer. Who knew?

Now, as good as these popsicles taste and well suited for kids birthday parties – I’d really love to eat one of those kiwifruit while laying on the beach on a tropical island somewhere! Enjoy 😀
