Our popsicle version of a smoothie has a beautiful marbled look that can be made in an array of colours. The photo features three different flavour combinations: mango and passion fruit; strawberries and raspberries; and blueberries, but you can adapt this recipe to any fruit of choice – just let your imagination run wild! If you choose a very ripe and sweet fruit, you can use a little less sweetener, or increase it if your fruit is very tart.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the banana smoothie

Quantity Ingredient
2 ripe bananas, peeled
500g full-fat plain unsweetened greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or quality raw honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Fruit Smoothie

Quantity Ingredient
150g fresh ripe berries or fruit of choice
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or quality raw honey

For the extras

Quantity Ingredient
fresh ripe berries or fruit of choice, roughly chopped
Nut butter
toasted nuts, roughly chopped
Coconut & buckwheat granola
quality dark chocolate or raw vegan refined sugarfree chocolate, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Roughly chop the bananas and add them to a blender along with the rest of the banana smoothie ingredients.
  2. Blend on a high speed until completely smooth.
  3. Set aside about 350 g of the banana smoothie, leaving the rest in the blender. Add all of the fruit smoothie ingredients to the blender and blend until completely smooth.
  4. Carefully fill 10 popsicle moulds with the smoothies, alternating between the banana and fruit one to create a marbled look (you can also use the back of a teaspoon or a knife to help create this ripple effect. For an even more spectacular look and interesting texture, try adding some of the extras in the moulds between the different coloured layers.
  5. Cover, insert the popsicle sticks and set in the freezer for at least 4 hours until completely firm or overnight. They can keep in the freezer for days, weeks, months, years . . . (but secretly you know they won’t!).

Note

  • For a vegan alternative, try replacing the yoghurt with full-fat plain unsweetened coconut yoghurt or milk. Alternatively, you can use the Berry Smoothie Layer from the Berry Smoothie & Salted Caramel Semifreddo recipe

Tip

  • We found our popsicle moulds on Amazon, but if you don’t have any, mini paper cups with popsicle sticks or teaspoons inserted in the middle work well too.
