These mixed berry pops are a tasty snack on a hot day. The vanilla ice cream makes them nice and creamy while the mixed berries give the delicious flavour. They're so easy to make. While they may not be a 100% healthy snack, using fresh (or frozen) fruit to make your own ice pops is often better than buying them from the store.

Kids will need adult supervision when using blenders or stick mixers, but otherwise this is a recipe they can make themselves. The berries can leave stains if you leave dishes lying around afterwards, so get the kids to clean up before they get to enjoy the ice pops.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: Freezing times vary
Makes: 4 ice pops

Ingredients
1 cup of vanilla ice cream
2 1/2 cups of mixed berries
Optional yoghurt

Method
Place the ice cream and berries in a blender or use a stick mixer to puree together. Frozen berries are a lot more economical, but they'll also make the mixture a lot thicker and will be harder to blend. If your mixture is too thick you can always add a bit of yoghurt to thin it out.

Once the mix is pureed, empty it into a sturdy fine sieve sitting over a mixing bowl.

Stir the mixture in the sieve so that you separate the crunchy berry seeds from the smooth berry mix. You can leave this step out, but you'll get a nicer and smoother texture if you do strain away your seeds first. Keep stirring until you just have seeds left in the sieve.

Pour your mixture into your ice block or ice pop maker. We used the Zoku Quick Pop Maker which makes ice pops in about 10 minutes on your bench top. If you use regular ice block moulds you'll just have to leave them in the freezer for a bit longer. The mixture is quite thick, so pour it into the mould and then put your stick in straight away.

Once they're set, just remove from the mould and enjoy.
