In my house, ice cream is timeless – it works for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all year round. As a kid, I actually begged my mum’s friends to buy me ice cream because I loved it so much, and the only holiday photos with a me smiling were the ones where I also had a huge bowl of ice cream in front of me.
These popsicles are nothing like the ones you’d find at the shops though. They are free of white sugar, food color or additives and therefore actually good for you!
Ingredients for 2 popsicles:
1/2 cup Oat milk
1 cup Mixed berries
Liquid Sweetener to taste
How to make the popsicles:
Blend all ingredients and pour into popsicle containers or cups and place wooden sticks in there – you can use a piece of card board to hold them in place.
Freeze for several hours until the popsicles are fully frozen.
Milk – almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, cashew milk
Fruit – Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, pear, mango, melon
Sweetener – honey, agave, coconut nectar, yacon syrup, maple syrup, molasses or dates
If you use a fruit with a sugar content higher than berries, you will need less sweetener.
It is super important though to not use an artificial sweetener such as Splenda or a replacement like as Stevia. You need the crystals in the sugar, otherwise the popsicle will be rock hard solid like an ice cube – not that enjoyable.
To remove the popsicle from the container easily: either defrost for a few minutes or briefly dip the container into warm water.
C = cup, 240 ml
1/2 C = half a cup, 120 ml or / TBSP
1/4 C = quarter of a cup, 60 ml or 4 TBSP
TBSP = table spoon, 15 ml or 3 tsp
tsp = tea spoon, 5 ml
“soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly and drain. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
