‘Shake & Make’ Almond and Berry Icey Poles

Summer is a childhood memories playground. When I think of my happiest times as a kid my thoughts go straight away to days at the beach. Days seemed to go forever and nothing was rushed, and of course I always remember the ice-cream on the way home (if I could stay awake in the car!)pops cover (1280x719).jpgSo I enjoy these times with my own children now, and I get to see the Summer days again through their eyes. I love making these 4 ingredient icey poles for them. They’re so quick to make, the kids love them and I know there are no processed ingredients or refined sugar to send them troppo.

These icey poles are gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, egg free and suitable for GAPS or Paleo protocols.

This recipe will make about 8 icey poles.

pops lucky (1060x1280)INGREDIENTS

2 cups almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 1/2 tblsp runny honey
1 1/2 cups organic mixed frozen berries (I use the Oob brand, available in most supermarkets)

almond milk (912x1280)METHOD

Place the almond milk, vanilla and honey into a large jar – I use the large Ball & Mason Quart jars.

Seal the lid tightly and shake! Give it a good shake for about 40 seconds. Check the bottom to make sure the honey has combined all the way through the milk.

Put the milk mixture one side and divide up the berries between the icey pole molds – just put them straight in. I like to make sure there’s a good mix of each type of berry in each mold.

Pour the milk evenly over the berries in each icey pole mold and fill to the top. Place a popsicle stick in or the top handle (depending on your mold set) and freeze for at least 5 hours. I like to make them in the morning ready for the arvo, or you could easily let them set overnight.

To remove the icey poles first run the molds under hot water for a few seconds to loosen.

Enjoy your lazy Summer days & glow for life!
