Want to make a healthier version of ice cream? How about some yoghurt and fruit ice pop?
Everyone loves a sweet cold treat every so often. Making a good ice cream requires patience and time as it either needs to be churned in an ice cream maker or blended several times in the Thermomix to get that nice smooth texture. But an ice pop is less demanding. My kids are also more forgiving when it comes to ice pops. In fact, they love the icy texture of the ice pops.
There’s usually yoghurt in my fridge and one way to use them up and to create a variety is adding yoghurt to smoothies or making them into ice pops. By adding some fruits, the ice pops are naturally flavoured and sweetened and its more creamy than one made from just pure juices.
So, here’s a quick fruity yoghurt ice cream that is sure to delight the little ones with the extra benefits of mangoes, bananas, raspberries and blueberries plus yoghurt.
I recommend using sweet, ripe mangoes for a naturally sweet and fragrant ice pop. Or you can replace with frozen ones if they are unavailable.
I also recommend making extras as they disappear rather quickly from the freezer. All you need are extra popsicle moulds and freezer space. See our range of cute popsicle moulds. I’ve added some in the sidebar for reference.
Do try these out, as these work great as bribes in my home, where the kids happily do a chore, or quickly finish up a meal so there’s time for an extra treat after dinner. And when they come home from school, I’m sure they will dive straight for an ice pop.
Please leave me a comment if you have tried it so I know if you did enjoy it too and feel free to share your ideas and variations.

This is a really delicious way to use up all those discards. Believe me, I’ve tried making all kinds of discard recipes. From waffles, pancakes, biscuits, crumpets to bao zi...
