15th February, 2017
It’s been an odd Summer. We’ve really only had a handful of super hot days. Truth be told, I actually don’t mind it. Especially as we are about 45 minutes from the closest beach and don’t have a pool in the back yard.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I love the warm weather….when I’m poolside with cocktail in hand!
This past week in typical Victorian fashion, we have had all four seasons.
Monday was 19ºC, Thursday was 41ºC…
On Thursday the cool change hit in the early afternoon which was a delight for school pickup.
The kids and I came home and cracked open these Yo-Pops. Super easy, super healthy and such a clever little Aussie invention.
Simply suction the silicone mould to the bench, fill them up with your favourite fruits, yoghurt, flavoured milk or juice. Insert the plastic handle and pop them in the freezer for a few hours. (I have found that overnight freeze works best)
We’ve been experimenting with different flavour combinations and thought I’d share a couple.
Make a small batch of smoothie blend with frozen mixed berries and yoghurt (any yoghurt will work).
Pour into moulds to fill half. Freeze for an hour. Top with plain yoghurt and fresh strawberries and finish with a little granola or toasted muesli.
(These are the ultimate – and brilliant for a breaky on the go!!)
Fresh fruits (we used passionfruit, strawberries, blueberries and banana)
Pop whatever you’d like into the mould and fill with yoghurt.
Piece of cake!
Oh, and the other great thing about these Yo-Pops is that they’re dishwasher safe.
Use them over and over and over and no need to worry about finding icy pole sticks around the house!
(décor yo-pops™ are available at selected supermarkets and will soon be available at Spotlight)
