Tutti fruity popsicles

A great frosty treat to prepare with the kids!

Preparation time: 5 minutes + freezing time (4+ hours)

Each of these combinations makes 4 serves in a disposable plastic cup. If you have popsicle moulds, you may end up with more as the moulds come in varying sizes.

Grape

  • 200 g seedless grapes
  • 2 cups no-added-sugar apple and blackcurrant juice

1. Divide the grapes amongst 4 cups. Fill each cup with 1/2 cup of juice.

Blueberry

  • 200 g blueberries
  • 200 g low-fat vanilla yoghurt

1. Mix together blueberries and yoghurt. Divide between 4 cups.

Watermelon

  • 200 g watermelon flesh
  • 200 g low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 8 mint leaves

1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth and pour into the cups.

Mango raspberry

  • flesh from 1 mango
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 200 g low-fat mango yoghurt
  • 24 raspberries, fresh or frozen

1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Put 6 raspberries into each cup and top with mango mix.

Method

2. Secure lids on moulds or insert popsicle sticks and freeze for 4–6 hours or overnight until solid.

Notes

  • Place any combination of finely diced fruit into mould including: mango, blueberries, strawberries, seedless watermelon, rockmelon, kiwifruit, drained canned peaches, apricots or pineapple in natural juice, and passionfruit pulp. Top with an unsweetened fruit juice such as orange, pineapple, apple and blackcurrant or apple and cranberry.
  • Create stripes of colour by layering fruit or yoghurt flavours. Half fill moulds with one fruit, freeze for 4 hours or overnight then fill with a different flavour or colour of fruit or fruit yoghurt before freezing.
