Fruity Yogurt Pops (GF)

Fruity Yogurt Pops, gluten free, coeliac, summer

Makes: 10-12 Small (Approx)

Let your little ones get creative in the kitchen! They are a fun way of getting your child to eat more fruit, whilst inventing their own fruity combination. Whether it be strawberries and kiwi fruit or banana and papaya, the sky’s the limit.

Ingredients:

1 large mango, stone and skin removed
250g / 9oz strawberries, cut in half
300g / 300ml gluten-free creamy vanilla yoghurt
10-12 wooden sticks

Method:

1. Place the mango and one third of the yoghurt in a jug and blend until smooth.

2. Divide the purée evenly between the moulds until they are 1/3 full and tap to remove any air bubbles, then place in the freezer for 30 minutes or until set.

3. Remove from the freezer and pour 1/3 of the remaining vanilla yoghurt evenly between the moulds. Gently tap the moulds to level the yogurt. Place in the freezer and repeat the freezing process.

4. Blend the remaining yoghurt with the strawberries until smooth and pour evenly between the moulds. Place a wooden stick in the centre of the yogurt pops and return to the freezer until set.

Top Tip: Depending on the thickness of the yogurt, you may find it easier to insert the wooden sticks once the third layer has been placed in the freezer for 15 minutes to ensure they stand upright.

    Really love natural yoghurt as a base for ice lollies – not only healthy but gives a wonderful tangy flavour against the sweet, ripe fruit. I must say that your three layers look so utterly beautiful!
