Plum, Cinnamon and Yoghurt Ice Pops

A New Year, a new beginning and after two weeks of holiday and festivities with lots of food and liquid calories consumed, a chilled beer in the our mid summer evenings is off the menu….well mid week anyway! Instead we are cooling down with a nice tart plum, cinnamon and yoghurt ice pop, or should I say ice block or lolly depending on where you live.

We have tons of stone fruit at the moment so I stewed a few kilos with some cinnamon sticks and star anis but didn’t want to make jam again this year so instead froze them off into little blocks of trend ice pops. I almost feel quite righteous consuming these funky pop ice since they are mostly fruit and a token bit of sugar and yoghurt.

There is no specific recipe but more a quantity ratio depending on how many you want to make or how many shot glasses you have in my case, not possessing any actual ice pop containers I had to raid the glass cupboard.

Ingredients

  • Plums
  • 20% sugar to plums
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 2 Star anis
  • Yoghurt

    Method

  • De-stone plums and place into a heavy bottom plan with the sugar, cinnamon and star anis.
  • Simmer over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Press through a sift if you want a smooth consistency or blend if you like all the fruit.
  • Pour into ice pop containers and place in freezer until almost frozen then insert the ice stick. If you forget and it freezes you can always use a hot knife to make an incision for the stick.
  • When completely frozen pour in yoghurt slightly sweetened with sugar and refreeze.
    Yummy…enjoy!

    2. Happy new year!

      These ice pops rock! It is so suitable for relaxing time after dinner! Stone fruits are very expensive here in Bangkok, but I have plenty of passionfruits here so maybe I will swap the ingredients and make it passionfruit yoghurt icepops!

    3. Lovely idea and lovely colour. So hard to think of you indulging in plums over there when all is grey and barren here.
