Healthy sneaky Frozen Fruit Icepops

Healthy, sneaky, frozen fruit icepops.

Where has the sun gone?!! Come back, come back! I love you and need you!

I don’t know about you but I am loving the hot weather that we have been having on and off recently. For both myself and my little man, its an excuse to cool down with an ice cream or ice lolly. Like most parents though, I do worry about the amount of sugar that my son consumes. So, I decided to make my own sugar free ice pops.

You can use lots of different soft flesh fruits such as peaches, mango, kiwi etc but my little man will not eat berries in their natural form! I make smoothies using berries and spinach but decided they would be the fruit I used for the ice pops.

One mistake that I made was not blending the mixture for long enough or not sieving it as the seeds were a bit crunchy and affected the texture of the pop.

What you will need:

ingrediants

utensils

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honey, natural or flavoured yogurt, a ripe avocado, fruit of your choice.

Ice pop moulds (mine are from Wilko’s), measuring cups, hand blender or kitchen top blender, knife, spoons and chopping board.

yog

add a quarter cup of yogurt and then a teaspoon (or more to taste) of honey.

moulds

Blend, pour into your moulds and freeze overnight! Enjoy the leftovers with a spoon or add a bit of milk to turn it into a smoothie!

That’s it. Super simple, tasty and sneakily healthy, full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.

I hope you enjoy,

Love
