Cooking with kids – fruity iceblocks

This last week has just been full on, my headaches have been really bad, and I have has some personal stuff happening and so I have not been very attentive to my blog.

However today I am introducing a new category ‘Cooking with kids’  These will be recipes that for the most part an older child will be able to do themselves, or a younger child can do most of it with a bit of help.

It is spring here in Australia at the moment, and it seems to be gearing up for a cracker of a summer if the current heat is any indication so we have been making ice blocks. They are much cheaper than store bought ice blocks, and can be made with whatever fruit you have on hand, canned or fresh.

These ones are orange and raspberry flavored.

You will need

Watered down cordial, we use a low joule diet cordial.

Ice block moulds (or plastic cups with paddle pop sticks work too)

Fruit of your choice

And from there it is simple, dice the fruit (orange)

Plonk it in the moulds, top it up with cordial (raspberry) insert the stick and freeze.

We use a lot of frozen berries, and the crumbs in the bottom are great in ice blocks!
