About this Recipe

By: Erin O’Neill – Accredited Practising Dietitian

Back when I was in primary school (a little while ago now) I remember they sold “icy cups” at the tuckshop for 20 cents.  Back then they were just frozen cordial in a plastic cup with a paddle pop stick frozen inside as a handle.

In an effort to bring back fond memories from my childhood of sitting in the school playground sucking on my lump of ice with frozen sugar water dripping down my arms I’ve fancied the concept up a bit.

These cherry blueberry coconut iceblocks are my grown-up version of the “icy cup.”  Enjoy!

Ready In:

4 hours 20 minutes

Skill Level:

Easy

Good For:

Snack, Dessert

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cherries (pitted, roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Using either iceblock moulds or 90 mL paper cups and paddle pop sticks, insert each stick into the middle of a cherry to anchor it in each cup.

Step 2

Add chopped cherries and blueberries to fill about 3/4 of the cup, around the stick.  Fill the rest of the cup with the coconut milk, making sure to leave a gap at the top for the mixture to expand as it freezes.  Filling the cup to about 2/3 full should be a good guide to aim for.

Step 3

Place the moulds in the freezer for at least 4 hours or until they are completely frozen.  If you try to take them out before they are completely frozen, the stick will come out.

Step 4

Once they are frozen, sit them on the bench for 5 to 10 minutes as this will make it slide out of the mould easier.  Enjoy!

If you want to make the iceblock creamier, try blending the fruit and coconut milk in a food processor and dividing it evenly between the moulds.
