Watermelon Pineapple Popsicles
- 3/4 cup coconut water or fruit juice, divided
- 1 tsp gelatin (or agar agar powder)
- 2 cups watermelon chunks
- 2 cups pineapple chunks
- 2 tsp honey, divided
Pour 1/4 cup of the coconut water into a bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over top and let it bloom (soften) for 10 minutes.
Bring the remaining 1/2 cup to a boil then pour into the bowl. Whisk until all the gelatin is dissolved.
In a blender puree the watermelon chunks with half the gelatin liquid and 1 tsp of honey. Pour into Popsicle molds, filling them halfway.
Rinse the blender, then puree the pineapple chunks with the remaining gelatin liquid and honey. Slowly drizzle the pineapple mixture into the molds. This mixture is a bit more dense than the watermelon mixture, so it will slightly displace the watermelon, creating a swirl effect.
Place the lids and sticks into the molds, then freeze for 6 hours or until hard.
Unmold the popsicles, run them under warm water for 5 seconds or until the popsicles come out easily.
