Kids love cooking, and with supervision even children as young as 18 months can pop the ingredients for these yummy, refined sugar free ice blocks into the mixer.
Sienna has been creating an array of frozen healthy treats in the kitchen this week. It has been hot, hot, hot here! So the ideal pick me up and cool me down for both the little people and big people have been Sienna’s yummy homemade ice blocks.
She has created lots of variations of her homemade ice blocks, but this is one of her favourites because it is so simple, using only 3 ingredients.
The berry ripple in the middle is delicious and can be swapped for other brightly coloured fruits such as blueberries, apricots of mangos.
Homemade Ice Blocks Made EASY!
2 super ripe bananas, peeled and chopped.
1/2 cup of berries (Sienna used frozen boysenberries)
1 1/4 cups of unsweetened yoghurt. (Sienna used Biofarm natural apple yoghurt)
Pop 3/4 of the chopped banana (that’s 1 1/2 bananas) into a whizz along with a cup of yoghurt and mix well until smooth and creamy.
Pop half the mix into the ice block moulds so that it is 1/3 full.
Rinse out the whizz and pop the rest of the yogurt, banana and the berries into the whizz and mix well. Carefully pour the berry mixture into the moulds onto of the banana mixture with a spoon.
Lastly spoon the banana mixture over the berry mixture, add the sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
The kids can drink any left over mixture you have so not to waste it.
Makes at least 8 homemade ice blocks.
