Pine Mango Passionfruit Paddle Pops are on Sweet Caramel Sunday!
Hi everyone! Happy Sunday, hope your weekend is going well. I always feel that they go too quickly no matter what I do. I am sure that you feel the same way. I looked at the calendar this week and realised just how fast this year is going. We are in June already and I remember just the other day it seemed like it was January. No doubt it won't be long before the shops are getting their Christmas ideas out and then the silly season will begin. If only we could slow down time a little bit so that things didn't happen so quickly!!
These ice blocks are sweet and refreshing and made from real fruit!!
Today, I wanted to share with you, a super fun, super easy dessert idea. I LOVE having something sweet after dinner, but I don't love it if that sweet is going to mean I have to go to yoga even more that I am already going to make up for it.
Luckily with this recipe, you won't feel that way either. It takes hardly anytime at all to prepare and the reward is sweet frozen paddle pops that are refreshing and have a zingy taste to them.
So, what I am sharing with you is a recipe that you can whip up in the arvo (Aussie slang for 'afternoon' for my non Aussie friends who happen to be reading this, thinking 'what is an 'arvo?') and then have in the freezer for anytime you want a healthier than not dessert option.
Now, let's get to it.................the recipe!
Pine Mango Passion Fruit Paddle Pops
- 1 432g tin pineapple chunks in juice don't let the grams put you off, this is a standard size tin of pineapple pieces
- 432g frozen mango pieces
- 1 170g tin passion fruit in syrup
- juice from pineapple tin
- Open tin of pineapple and pour entire contents into blender jug
- Fill same empty tin with frozen mango chunks
- Blitz to combine
- Open tin of passion fruit and pour into blender jug, stir to combine
- Don't blend the mix again after adding the passion fruit as it will obliterate your seeds
- This will make 6 paddle pops
- You will need a paddle pop mould for the recipe - they are plenty of places to get them these days!
- When the paddle pops are set and you are taking them out to eat, you will need to run them under warm water to release them. Or, fill a blender jug with warm water and dunk and pull off the container (your technique will depend what type of molds you have)
More from me
I heard a massive crash in the kitchen just before and I think I am now going to have some cleaning up to do as I stacked a few things too high and now I have pots and pans EVERYWHERE.......(on the floor, on the bench, like EVERYWHERE) so I will get onto sorting that. Sometimes I think it would be good, if I could just get rid of some stuff so I wouldn't have some much of it all over the place, so I might factor in a cull of my cupboard contents soon, not a super fun task, but a very necessary one! I find once I get the clutter into the car, it only takes another 3 months or so (I kid you not!) of me driving around with it, before, I actually remove it from the car and place in the donation area of my local animal shelter.
Thanks as always for reading x
