Freeze until puree is slightly slushy, but not quite solid, about 2 to 3 hours. Remove from freezer, and add in chocolate chips, using a wooden skewer to put them in place. Put back ice pops in the freezer for another 30 minutes, and then place a twig or stick on every ice pop. Freeze for at least 4 hours
    2. Prepare lemon layer just by combining all ingredientes. Pour a thin lemon layer over watermelon layer in every ice pop. Freeze again for at least four hours
    3. Prepare kiwifruit layer by blending all ingredientes. Pour kiwifruit mixture evenly over lemon layer in cups. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until completely solid.
    4. Cut disposable cups to unmold
