Fruit is the ideal healthy snack for students. It’s a terrific sweet snack, yet it’s free of added sugar while high in fibre and vitamins. Frozen fruit snacks are colourful, easy to eat, and make a healthy change to commercial ice blocks and icy poles in both summer and winter.
Save time and ask your volunteers to make bulk batches as they can last for weeks. If they remain unsold after some time, you can use leftovers in muffin mixes or smoothies to avoid waste.
Banana Blizzards (frozen bananas)
Peel bananas, cut into small pieces and thread on an icy pole stick. Coat with lemon juice, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. Optional: dip in reduced fat yoghurt before or after freezing.
Peel bananas, cut into small pieces and thread on an icy pole stick, dip in reduced fat yoghurt and roll in rice bubbles. Serve fresh (make just before serving) or freeze and sell the following day.
Thread strawberries (minus husk) onto an icy pole stick. Dip in plain or strawberry low fat yoghurt and roll in desiccated coconut. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.
Fruity juice ice cups
Water down 100% fruit juice, pour into cups (100ml size or smaller) and freeze. This is a great, profitable item to make.
Optional: add tinned two fruits (in natural juice).
Frozen fruit salad
If you have any leftover fresh fruit salad, instead of throwing it out, put it into small plastic tubs and freeze. This is a great frozen snack for the next day.
Drain canned pineapple rings (in natural juice), individually wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.
Cut watermelon into wedges, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.
