Smoothie ice lollies

smoothie ice lollies

Serves 12

  • 1 large banana, or 2 small bananas

  • 300 g frozen mixed berries

  • 50 g porridge oats

  • 400 ml pure organic apple juice

  • honey, optional

  • 200 g good-quality white chocolate, broken up, optional

Place the bananas, berries, oats and apple juice in a liquidizer. Blitz for a few minutes until the berries and banana are completely smooth and the porridge oats are whizzed up. Taste for sweetness – if the bananas are lovely and ripe the mixture should be sweet enough, if not, add honey to taste. Divide the smoothie mixture into 12 ice-lolly moulds and freeze for at least 2 hours.



To give the lollies a chocolate coating, place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a small pan of simmering water. Make sure the water isn't boiling and the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water, or you will burn the chocolate. Stir until completely smooth, then take off the heat and leave for 5 minutes.



Wiggle the lolly sticks to loosen the lollies and lift them out. One by one, dip the tips of the lollies in the white chocolate and leave to set for a few minutes before serving.



A fun, pretty way to serve these lollies is to cover some flower-arranging oasis with fresh flowers, tinfoil or coloured tissue paper, and stick the lollies in. For an extra-special entrance, pop in a few sparklers – but be careful!

These ice lollies are really healthy, with only a little bit of an optional chocolate coating. They won't make your kids go all mad and hyperactive, and they love them because they think they are naughty. If there is any leftover smoothie, just add a little more apple juice for a healthy drink.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
