Lollies

Ingredients

  • 1 small bunch bananas
  • 150 g frozen mixed berries
  • 200 ml pure organic apple juice
  • Honey (optional)
  • 100g good-quality white chocolate, broken up, (optional)

Method

  1. Place the bananas, berries and apple juice in a liquidizer. Blitz for a few minutes until the berries and banana are completely smooth. Taste for sweetness – if the bananas are lovely and ripe the mixture should be sweet enough, if not, add honey to taste. Divide the smoothie mixture into 6 ice-lolly moulds and freeze for at least 2 hours.
  2. To give the lollies a chocolate coating, place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a small pan of simmering water. Make sure the water isn’t boiling and the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water, or you will burn the chocolate. Stir until completely smooth, then take off the heat and leave for 5 minutes.
  3. Wiggle the lolly sticks to loosen the lollies and lift them out. One by one, dip the tips of the lollies in the white chocolate and leave to set for a few minutes before serving.
  4. Quickly dip the chocolate tip into the bowl of crushed nuts.
