Fruitcicles

Visually spectacular and perfect for warmer days.

These look visually spectacular if you add lots of different colours and shapes. Most fruits work well so you can’t go wrong: just choose the flavours you and the kids love. Fruitcicles are also a simple way to increase the amount of fruit eaten in a day.

FRUITCICLES

dairy-free / egg-free / gluten-free / grain-free / nut-free / wheat-free / freezable

Makes 6–8

  • 2–3 cups (500–750 ml) coconut water
  • blueberries and raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • kiwi fruit , peeled and thinly sliced

Also known as the Chinese gooseberry, it contains more vitamin C weight for weight than an orange! Kiwis are also high in vitamins A, B, E and K.
