These are great to make with your children in the summer months to help fill the seemingly endless school holidays.

If your child isn’t keen on pink grapefruit, you can switch to fresh orange juice or whichever other juice she prefers. Sometimes I also add a splash of rosewater to the pink grapefruit juice for a deliciously different iceblock – it’s a lovely way to introduce your child to a new flavour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
625ml pink grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
3 tablespoons maple syrup
24 raspberries, washed

Method

  1. Stir together the grapefruit juice and maple syrup with 125 ml water.
  2. Place half of the raspberries in the bottom of six 125 ml iceblock moulds or use twelve 60 ml moulds.
  3. Pour half the grapefruit mixture into the moulds over the berries and freeze for 1–2 hours, or until partially frozen. Repeat with remaining raspberries and grapefruit mixture. Freeze overnight or until frozen solid. (If you are using iceblock sticks, you will need to freeze the second round of mixture for 1–2 hours until partially frozen, insert the sticks, then return to the freezer overnight.)

Baby’s serve

  • If you like, you can make a maple-free version of these for your baby, but they might be a little sour for her. Switching the grapefruit juice for freshly squeezed orange juice will make a naturally sweeter iceblock. Many babies will find these too cold and you might prefer to wait until your baby is over 12 months before offering them to her.

Toddler’s serve

  • Serve as is.
