Blackberry ice blocks with white chocolate drizzle

These iceblocks will help you celebrate Summer! The hero ingredient is blackberries, which are packed full of Vitamin C and are high in fibre. They are a great treat for kids (or big kids) and are full of flavour and goodness. The drizzle of white chocolate melted over the top makes them look soooooo fancy pants. But you can eat them without this if you wish.

Makes 4-6 iceblocks (depending on the size you make them)

2 cups blackberries (I use the ones in 1kg bags in the supermarket frozen foods area, which are available most times throughout the year)

¾ coconut cream

¼ coconut milk

3 tablespoons maple syrup

Grind of sea salt

1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder

Optional topping: White Whittakers choc melted and drizzled on top

Place all the ingredients into a blender and mix. Pour the mixture into popsicle moulds and leave in the freezer to set over night.

The next day, take the popsicles out of the mould and place on a sheet of baking paper.

Heat the white chocolate (about 8 pieces) slowly using a bain-marie (put the chocolate in a glass bowl and then place this bowl inside a large pot filled with about 2cm of water. Heat the pot of water slowly and it melts the chocolate without burning it).

When the chocolate is melted, get a spoon full and then drizzle it over the popsicles. Next take the popsicles off the baking paper and place them in a container in the freezer until they are ready to eat. Then enjoy one whenever you like. My kids like to come home from school and take one out of the freezer during Summer.
