Makes about 14 bites or 1 ice cube tray depending on capacity.

Ingredients:

  • 150g (1 cup) soft fruit (e.g. mango, peach, berries, banana, passionfruit)
  • 200g reduced fat natural or vanilla yoghurt
  • Ice cube trays
  • Serving cups
  • Toothpick or forks

Method:

  1. Finely chop the fruit.
  2. Mix with the yoghurt.
  3. Spoon into ice cube moulds.
  4. Freeze for 1-2 hours until solid.
  5. Pop bites out of trays and place in a freezer container.
  6. Serve desired number of bites into a serving cup and provide a toothpick or fork.

 

Hint:

  • You can use fresh, frozen or canned fruit. Make a variety of different flavours. The students can then pick how many bites they want and can choose different flavours.
  • The cost for ingredients will vary depending on the fruit you choose. So this costing is an estimate only.
  • If you’re using shaped moulds or those made out of silicone, be careful when it comes to popping them out because they can be fragile. We recommend sitting the moulds in a little warm water for 30 seconds to help loosen them first.
