Ingredients
  • 4 Cup of roughly chopped seedless watermelons
  • 4 spoon of powdered jaggery -Optional (This can be skipped while preparing for babies)
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup fresh coconut milk
  • 1 cup kiwi or grapes or anar
Instructions
  1. The first step is to blend 4 cups of watermelons, 2 tablespoons of powdered jaggery and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a blender until well pureed. Carefully pour the watermelon into the popsicle mold, fill about ½ portion.
  2. Cover the lid and insert the popsicle sticks and allow it to free for a couple of hours. Meanwhile prepare the second layer.
  3. Take a fresh mature coconut and break it to open. Chop around ¼ of the coconut. Take the roughly chopped coconut piece, add 1 tablespoon of jaggery powder and blend it. You will be able to see a paste, now add ½ cup of water and blend it again till the coconut is ground well. It will take 2-3 minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and line it with a fine strainer. Press with a spoon on the coconut jaggery shreds. This will give you pure coconut milk, without any debris.
  5. The coconut milk should be in pour-able consistency if it is thick, add 1-2 tablespoon of cold water to thin it. Remove the watermelon popsicle and gently remove the lid. Now, carefully pour the coconut milk over the watermelon layer. This will make the second layer. Cover the lid and allow it freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Prepare the last layer. Meanwhile, blend the kiwi or grapes or anar and strain the juice. Remove the popsicle mold again and add this third layer of kiwi over the second layer of coconut milk evenly. Freeze again for 4-5 hours.
  7. In order to remove the popsicle from the mold, run the mold under tap water for few seconds then slowly pull from the molds. Enjoy!
