GREEN (ACT & SA) / EVERYDAY (NSW)

Makes 14 bites (25g each) using a standard ice cube tray

Ingredients:

  • 150g (1 cup) soft fruit (e.g. mango, peach, berries, banana, passionfruit)
  • 200g reduced-fat vanilla or chocolate custard

Method:

  1. Finely chop the fruit.
  2. Distribute fruit into each mould of a standard ice cube tray.
  3. Pour custard over the fruit, filling the moulds.
  4. Freeze for 1-2 hours or until solid.
  5. Pop bites out of trays and place in a freezer container.
  6. Serve bites in a cup with either a toothpick or fork.

Variations:

  • You could also use reduced-fat yoghurt or flavoured milk!

Tips:

  • Using an ice cube tray with smaller moulds makes smaller fruit bites which may be easier to eat.
  • You can use fresh, frozen, or canned fruit.
  • 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.
