  • 2 young coconuts
  • 400 gm (2 cups) mixed sliced fresh fruit, such as strawberries, grapes, mangoes, lychees, kiwis, raspberries and pineapple

Method

Main
  • 1
    Cut a hole in the top of each coconut, pour the coconut water into a jug and set aside. Reserve the flesh for another use.
  • 2
    Fill eight 150ml icy-pole moulds with pieces of fruit, ensuring they fit snugly. Pour coconut water into each mould to just cover the fruit, then insert ice-pops sticks and freeze until solid (6 hours or overnight). Ice-pops will keep frozen for up to 2 weeks. Dip popsicles briefly into hot water to unmould.
