    Step 3: Pour the pureed fruit into the molds and layer as you desire. We even added small chunks of fruit and then poured coconut milk on top! For more definitive lines, you can freeze each layer individually before adding a different fruit.

    Step 4: Pour a little coconut milk in each mold to help fill the gaps between the fruit.

    Step 5: Place the sticks in each mold and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
