How to assemble the watermelon popsicles

The assembly of the watermelon poles will depend a bit on each mold depending on whether they are vertical, horizontal or in the shape of a watermelon. With typical popsicle moulds, we will have to assemble layer by layer and freeze them after adding each layer so that they do not mix. So first, we pour the watermelon mixture into about 2/3 of each mold, and put them in the freezer for 1 hour to freeze and harden a bit.

After 1 hour, we remove the popsicles from the freezer and place the chocolate chips in the red layer with the help of some tongs. We freeze the molds again for another half hour so that this layer hardens a bit and does not mix with the next one.

Next, we make the lemon layer by pouring a little of the mixture corresponding to this layer, in each mold. We keep the molds in the freezer for 1 more hour.

Finally, we have to make the green layer that simulates the skin of the watermelon. To do this, we pour a small amount of the mixture corresponding to this layer into each mold. At this time, we insert the ice cream sticks and store them in the freezer for 3 more hours so that the poles finish freezing.

Placing the sticks for the watermelon

If we use horizontal watermelon-shaped molds, first we put the pieces of chocolate in the holes for it, and then a layer of kiwi on the edges, which already have the groove reserved for it. We keep the poles in the freezer for 1 hour. In this case, we then add the watermelon puree until the mold is filled, place the sticks, cover and freeze for 3 hours. With these molds, we have to omit the white layer, as we have no way to add it without mixing it with the watermelon layer.
