Method

  1. Place chosen fruit in a saucepan and cover with a lid
  2. Bring slowly to a boil then turn off and allow to cool
  3. Blend fruit with equal quantities of banana until smooth
  4. Pour into ice block moulds with a stick and freeze

Tip

For a layered effect use different fruits and blend with banana separately  then pour into moulds one after the other.  

Here are some ideas for fruits to use:

  • Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries 
  • Tropical fruits- mango, pineapple
  • Stone fruit- plums, peaches, nectarines, cherries

You could also replace these fruits with canned fruits, in which case you can skip the cooking and blend with banana after draining from the can.
