10 Minute Icecream

I bowed to the marketing pressure and bought one of those groovy little icecream makers which makes (depending on where you live…) frozen paddle pops/ice lollies/icicles/popsicles in 10 minutes – help a foodie out here, what are they even called? I woke up with a sore throat this morning and thought a frozen smoothie would hit the spot – which is essentially what these are!

Be prepared to read the world’s most precise recipe *dripping with sarcasm*…


Frozen Pops

Blend together the following:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • a generous tablespoon sized blob of nut butter – my current faves are anything from my friends at Mayvers
  • half a 400g can of coconut milk*
  • Heaped Tbsp of cacao
  • A tsp of maca powder
  • A generous splosh of coconut water to thin it out (it freezes quicker if the mixture’s not too thick)
  • A scoop of protein powder**
  • Generous drizzle of raw honey/coconut nectar/maple syrup/rice syrup to taste
  1. Pour into your pre-frozen popsicle maker and re-freeze for 10 minutes.


Homemade ice magic (Are you prepared for more of my famous measuring precision?!)

Melt together in your Thermomix on speed 3, 50C for 4 minutes (or over a very low heat on a double boiler):

  • 100g or half a cup-ish of Cacao paste***
  • 1/2 Cup-ish of Coconut oil
  • Raw honey/coconut nectar/maple syrup/rice syrup to taste, few tablespoons?
  1. Dip frozen pops into the ice magic, it’ll freeze within seconds, then dip into sprinkles or crushed nuts or just straight into ya gob!

Frozen PopsTry adding the following to mix things up a bit:

Mint oil

Chai spices

Green powder

Chia gel

Cacao nibs


Orange Juice (Jaffa!)


Scrap the entire recipe and blend together pineapple, mango and lime juice, it is sooooooo good!!

*Look for brands with no added ingredients and a BPA-free can eg: Spiral or Nakula

**I used Garden of Life made from sprouted rice and pea protein, keeps it dairy free, which I prefer
***Also known as cacao mass or cacao liquor – essentially it is 100% unsweetened dark chocolate. It’s what chocolate looks like before it’s separated into cacao and cacao butter. You could also use really good quality dark chocolate
