One of the most simple and creative ice blocks your kids can make themselves is the Fruity Pop. Kids of any age can make these – you can cut the fruit so they can design their own ice block, or older kids can both cut the fruit and make them. If you don’t have ice block moulds, these can easily be made in tall glasses or ramekins with wooden popsicle sticks. 

What you need

  • Your kids’ favourite fruits, cut into pieces. Fruits that work best are: Berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mulberries), melon (watermelon, paw paw, honeydew, rockmelon), kiwi fruit, passionfruit, banana, grapes and pineapple
  • Coconut water or kombucha.


Get your kids to arrange the fruit into the moulds. My kids often like to cut shapes into the fruit and they attempt to make patterns and special designs. Make sure there is enough fruit in the mould so when it is filled with the coconut water or kombucha, it won’t float to the top. 

Once they are happy with their ‘design,’ insert popsicle sticks and fill the mould with either coconut water or kombucha. Freeze and enjoy!
