Ice fruit cube shakes

Try these simple, fun and fruity shakes! Remember to let a grown-up check every packet label for allergens (and traces of allergens) before you start to make them.

Ingredients

1 grown-up
150g raspberries
150g blackberries
200g pineapple or mango (diced)
800ml coconut milk or any other dairy-free milk
2 tsp honey (or maple syrup)
2 ice cube trays
4 drinking glasses and swirly straws!

Method

1. Take one grown-up and put them in charge. Then wash your berries and place the raspberries, blackberries and diced pineapple (or mango) into three separate tall sided bowls.

2. Now for the fun part... squish your fruits using a hand blender or fork, until they become three colourful, juicy purées! 

3. Then spoon your fruit purée into two ice cube trays. Have fun mixing together different flavours and colour combinations. To make stripy ice fruit cubes, place a spoonful of berry purée on the bottom and add a spoonful of pineapple (or mango) purée on top.

4. Place your ice cube trays in the freezer for three hours. Once your cubes are frozen, take them out of the trays and select which ones you would like to make into a shake. 

5. For each serving, place two ice fruit cubes in a glass and mix with 200ml of coconut milk (or dairy-free alternative) and add ½ tsp of honey. Then watch your shake change colour as your ice fruit cubes begin to melt. Magic!

You can use all kinds of fruit to make different coloured shakes. Have fun experimenting! 
Store leftover ice fruit cubes in a freezer for up to three months.
