24 Sep Frozen Strawberry Yoghurt Icy Poles
These ice-cold treats will really hit the spot in the warm days ahead.
These are very quick and simple to make, but it’s best to do so when there are no kids around to pester you about when they’ll be ready. The icy poles don’t freeze hard, which makes them easy to eat, and my kids gobbled them up in a flash. I made a normal batch of these followed by a lactose-free batch for my son (who is lactose intolerant) and they worked just as well.
You can substitute the strawberries with almost any seasonal fruit, such as mangoes.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Freezing Time: 4 hours +
1 punnet ripe strawberries, washed and hulls removed
3 tbs natural yoghurt
2 tsp castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
Put strawberries, castor sugar and vanilla essence into a blender. Blend for a few seconds until mixture starts to go sloppy.
Add yoghurt and blend for another 30 seconds until well combined. Pour or spoon mixture into icy-pole moulds (or use ice-cube trays and stick an icy-pole stick in each one).
Freeze and enjoy.
