Nothing but natural goodness!
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas
- 300g natural or flavoured yoghurt
- 3-4 tbsps honey
- Juice of half a lemon
- A mixture of berries
- This recipe is quickest made in a food processor, however if the kids want to play along and learn, then all you need is a large bowl, a potato masher and all the elbow grease they’ve got!
- Purée the bananas until smooth, or left with just a little lump here and there is also fine.
- Blend in the yoghurt, sugar and lemon juice.
- Remove about half of the mixture and set aside in a bowl.
- Place whichever berries you’re using into the processor along with the mixture and pulse until combined.
- Note: if your’e doing this by hand, and you have time, berries that you have previously frozen in a dish and allowed to thaw will mix in perfectly…don’t forget to add all the juices that come out during the thawing process.
- Loosely swirl the reserved yoghurt into the fruit mixture and fill your ice-pop mould. Somehow the random patterns that emerge on unveiling are more fun that uniformly coloured popsicles.
If you are using wooden sticks, wait until the pops are semi-frozen before inserting, otherwise they’ll fall over to one side. To remove from the moulds, dip briefly into hot water.
