Shopping list 2


  • 150 raspberries or blackberries (or combination)
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 350ml low fat natural yoghurt
  • 4 ice-lolly moulds

Preparation 2



  • Set a small handful of berries to one side. In a food processor, blitz the remaining berries with the syrup, until you have a fairly smooth puree.
  • Add the yoghurt to the mashed berries, stirring gently to create a swirly effect.
  • Stir in the reserved berries, being careful to keep them whole.
  • Spoon the mixture into the ice-lolly moulds, ensuring you divide the whole berries as equally as you can.
  • Place in the freezer. Leave for at least 2 hours, or until frozen solid.

J Tip 2


Jennifer’s Tip:

For a slightly more sophisticated version, try a combination of blueberries and mint or strawberries and basil. Simply add a tablespoon of shredded fresh herbs to mashed fruit, mix through the yoghurt, and freeze.
