I suggest using a seedless watermelon for easy prep but you can also use one with seeds.

You simply need to strain the watermelon puree before pouring it into the popsicle molds.

If you find the watermelon puree is not sweet enough you can add some honey to it.

Mix some honey together with the pureed watermelon and then taste it.

If it’s not sweet enough add some more honey. You can also add some honey to the mashed kiwi for some added sweetness.
