Things We Love - Quick and Easy Icey Treats

Melbourne is in a heat wave and we don't know what to do with ourselves :( In an effort to take my mind off the fact that I feel like a chicken roasting here are some delicious and pretty healthy icey treats you can make at home!

Natural healthy mag has some interesting and healthy recipes for home made icey poles. My fave is definitely the Berry Breeze!!

You will need:
  • 250g fresh berries
  • 1-2 tbs of sweetener, or to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbs water or fruit juice
Method: Add berries, sweetener and lemon juice to a food processor. Blend until combined, leaving a few chunks of berry for texture. Freeze till frozen - usually around 4 - 6 hours.
If you're up for something that will really impress why not try these super dooper watermelon pops! It only takes a handful of ingredients (you can leave off the lime sherbert rind if you prefer). Check out the details at Eat Yourself Skinny
You will need:
  • 5 cups seedless watermelon pulp
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (for the seeds)
  • 1 pint lime sherbet, softened (for the rind)
Here's to keeping cool!
