Ingredients

  • 1 lb (450g) mixed berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, currants)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2.5 tbsp maple syrup + extra for sweetening if required
  • 6 bananas peeled
  • 1 1/3 cup (300ml) cold orange juice
  • 3.5 oz (100g) peeled cubed watermelon

Instructions

Roast the Strawberries

  • Preheat the oven to fan-assisted 180 C / 200 C / 400F / gas 6.
  • Mix the berries with the balsamic vinegar and the maple syrup and transfer into a ceramic baking dish. Use a small dish so that the berries roast in their liquid (otherwise the liquid might evaporate and the berries dry out).
  • Roast for about 20 minutes, turning half way through, until the juices are bubbling and the berries start to turn darker.
  • Then remove the berries from the oven and allow to cool.

Make the Watermelon Popsicles

  • When cool, transfer the roasted berries and their juices along with all the other ingredients, including extra maple syrup if desired, into a blender and whizz until well combined.
  • Pour into a popsicle mold and freeze for 1 hour.
  • Then take out, add in the lolly sticks and freeze until solid.

Notes

Watermelon Popsicle Tips
  • One tip here is to roast the berries and leave them in the fridge for a couple of days, so you can whip up the watermelon ice lollies whenever you want.
  • If you don't have any ice pop molds, then simply use small paper cups (the expresso size ones are perfect)  to freeze the berry popsicles.
  • You can add lemon juice, lime juice or lime zest to your taste.
  • Do not fill the popsicle molds to the top. Leave some space as the popsicles expand during freezing.
