  1. Strain the red popsicle puree to smoothen the texture and filter the seeds.
  1. Fill your popsicle maker until 80% full. Freeze for 3 hours.
  1. After 3 hours, stick the popsicles in the middle to keep it standing straight. Refreeze for another hour to be sure its completely frozen.
  1. After being in the freezer for 4 hours, make the green popsicle puree similar to how we made the red. (Puree & Strain)
  1. After making the green popsicle puree, pour on top of the red and fill it to the brim. Make sure its completely frozen before pouring to prevent leaks on the side.
  1. Then refreeze for another 2 hours or overnight before serving.
  1. To unmold the popsicles, run the mold in lukewarm water and shaking the popsicles a bit to loosen.
  1. Serve.
