Let's prepare the fruit. Slice the kiwi fruit into 7mm (0.3") slices and cut them into quarter moons. Remove the membranes from the segmented orange and cut the wedges in half.
Place the kiwi and orange onto each plate. Add the sugar. Lightly toss to coat and let them sit for about 10 minutes. You can also use honey or maple syrup instead of the sugar.
We're using these popsicle molds. Spoon the blueberry yogurt into the mold. Add 2 pieces of the kiwi. Then, spoon the strawberry yogurt over it. Add 2 pieces of the orange.
Repeat this layering process, assembling the popsicle. Be sure to leave about 5mm (0.2") at the top since it will overflow when frozen.
Set a handle into each mold. Let the molds sit in the freezer overnight to firm up the popsicles thoroughly.
We're making azuki milk popsicles using small paper cups. Put 1 tablespoon of Amanatto, a type of candied azuki beans in each cup.
Add the sweetened condensed milk to the milk. Stir it evenly and then pour the mixture into the cups.
Cover each cup with a piece of aluminum foil and make a small slit in the center. Insert a popsicle stick into the slit.
The foil will help hold the sticks in place. The azuki milk popsicles will harden after about 3 hours.
The popsicles are fully frozen. Dip the molds in a bowl of water for a moment or run them under water at the sink. This will help loosen the popsicles easily.
Wiggle the popsicle free and remove it out of the mold. The colorful layers are absolutely beautiful, aren't they?
As for the paper cups, remove the aluminum foil. Make a cut along the cup with kitchen shears. Then, tear the paper to remove the azuki milk popsicle.
If the popsicle sticks aren't available, you can also use waribashi, disposable wooden chopsticks.
Alternatively, you can use seasonal fruit, for example strawberries, peaches, loquats or pineapple, in this recipe. If fresh fruit is not available, frozen fruit can also be used.
These popsicles have a relatively small amount of sugar, making them a quintessential refreshing dessert during hot summer months.
