The HEALTHY Popsicle recipe (dairy free)

This is a very quick and yummy recipe suitable for children and toddlers. All you need is a blender, or food processor and Popsicle/icicle moulds. If you don't have the moulds, you could make your own by using a small, narrow yoghurt container. Put some glad wrap over the open top and pop a stick through the middle.

In the blender, combine 1 banana, a handful of blueberries and a handful raspberries. Add just enough soy milk to make it into a very thick smoothie.  I add a teaspoon of honey to the mix, but you could give the honey a miss if you wanted a truly vegan recipe. Once combined, pour into the moulds, add your stick and freeze over night. To remove easily, just run the mould under warm water for a few seconds.

You can use frozen berries and banana. I often buy large bunches of banana when on sale and freeze some to have on hand for smoothies. It seems obvious, but peel and cut into chunks before freezing.

I often double the recipe so there is enough for a smoothie now and yummy icy treats for later.

Variations: 1 mango, 1 banana & soy milk
What are your variations of the recipe? Do you add strawberries, passion fruit or any other fruits?
