Cut a few thin slices of fruit and place them on the sides of the popsicle moulds. Reserve.

In a blender, process the rest of the fruit and the other ingredients until smoothly blended together.

Using a small funnel, pour the mix into the moulds and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Remove pops by running moulds under hot water. Enjoy.


Taste mixture before freezing it and sweeten to taste if necessary. Reserve a small quantity of sliced or diced fruit to add to mixture for a more attractive presentation. Ricotta and fruit served with granola cereal make a delicious breakfast combination.

Alternative fruit pairings: Strawberry-pineapple, banana-raspberry, banana-mango, Pineapple-papaya, Kiwi-avocado.
