TEST KITCHEN: Berry Swirly Iceblocks

 

I need to get better at giving my children desserts.  I always think of it as too much sugar before bed, which doesn’t sit well with me.  I know dessert can be healthy, but to me dessert is a sweet treat – so it’s coming up with something my kids will think of as a treat, that has elements of nutrition in there, of some sort anyway.

I am a big fan of Louise Fulton Keats Thermomix recipes – and I have provided her Thermomix recipe below, with a quick conversion to a conventional methods as well.  It doesn’t matter which one you use, they are super easy.

 

INGREDIENTS  

300g fresh or frozen mixed berries

4T apple juice or water

1-2T caster sugar

450g coconut or vanilla yoghurt

 

iceblock moulds

 

THERMOMIX METHOD

Place fresh or thawed berries, apple juice or water and sugar into mixing bowl and blend 1 min/speed 6.

Layer iceblock moulds with berry puree and yoghurt.  Using a small knife or spatula, lightly swirl the two mixtures together. Freeze overnight or until frozen sold (if you are using wooden sticks, freeze mixture 1-2 hours until partially frozen, insert sticks, then return to freezer overnight).

Turn iceblocks out of moulds to serve.

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

Place fresh or thawed berries, apple juice or water and sugar into a small saucepan and cook over a medium heat until well combined and broken down into a puree.  If necessary, pass through a sieve or blend in food processor for 30 seconds on high.

Layer iceblock moulds with berry puree and yoghurt.  Using a small knife or spatula, lightly swirl the two mixtures together. Freeze overnight or until frozen sold (if you are using wooden sticks, freeze mixture 1-2 hours until partially frozen, insert sticks, then return to freezer overnight).

Turn iceblocks out of moulds to serve.

COMMENT

I think I was a little heavy handed on the fruit puree layers – next time will do more yoghurt and less puree.
