About this Recipe

By: Erin O’Neill – Accredited Practising Dietitian

Fruity chia seed iceblocks are so easy to make, perfect for cooling you down during a brutal Aussie summer, and totally acceptable for literally any time of day.

Unlike sugary ice blocks that can be filled with artificial colours and lacking in nutrition, these popsicles are actually good for you.

Packed with gut-loving fibre and protein, you’ll actually look forward to getting out of bed when you’ve got these waiting for you.

You’ll only need 5 ingredients, and you can have a play with the recipe based on what’s in the pantry and fridge, or what’s in season.

Servings

6-8 ice blocks

Ready In:

5 hours

Skill Level:

Easy

Good For:

Breakfast, Snack

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup milk kefir or 1 cup plain Greek yoghurt and 1/2 cup plain milk
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1 cup any fruit, cut into small pieces (berries, peach, pineapple, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup toasted muesli (give this Banana Coconut Museli recipe a try)

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Begin by combining your kefir or yoghurt and milk with the honey and chia seeds in a medium-sized bowl.

Step 2

Fill your iceblock mould (I used these ones from Kmart) about 1/4 of the way with the yoghurt mixture, then drop in the fruit.  Spoon more of the yoghurt mixture on top to cover the fruit.  Give them a gentle bang on the bench to avoid any air-pockets, then press down on the mixture with a spoon.

Step 3

Now, sprinkle the muesli in over the yoghurt and fruit and press it down gently with a spoon to that it gets into the yoghurt mixture.

Step 4

Your fruity chia seed iceblocks are ready to freeze now.  Put them in the freezer for at least 5 hours.  When you’re ready to eat them, leave them on the bench for about 5 minutes before removing them from the moulds so that they slide out easily.
