Nothing beats a frozen treat on a hot Adelaide day and they don’t have to be full of sugar and hard to pronounce ingredients.

Our best flavour combos have always come from throwing in what’s left of the frozen fruit in the freezer, adding some yoghurt or coconut water, blending up in my Magimix, freeze and cross fingers. But if you’re a recipe following type of person, here are some other ideas to try.

We love our reuseable My Lil Pouch Ice Pops because they’re reusable, come in fun colours and they’re durable, no seams splitting in the freezer with these ones. Oh and you can get 20% off using the code KIA20 when you shop online which brings a 12 pop variety pack to under 30 bucks.

  • We picked some lemons from Poppy's lemon tree this morning and what better way to use them than a batch of delicious cold homemade lemonade. I've never made it before, but it was so super easy I had to share. Ingredients 1 cup caster sugar (that's what the recipe said, but that seemed like too much for me so I just used 1/3 of a cup and it's perfect) you might need to experiment with how sweet you like it 1 cup water 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. 3 cups soda water/mineral water Method Stir sugar and water over low heat until sugar has dissolved. I chucked mine in the Magimix on Expert Setting/40degrees/Speed 3 Add lemon juice and soda water and stir Serve cold over ice - enjoy! Next time I'm going to add some ginger (or some vodka ;) ) ???? ????

  • Every child loves a bit of a treat now and then. Admittedly, we don't send treats to school, except the occasional Tiny Teddies. However, now that my daughter is in "big" school, she comes home telling me about all the lovely treats her classmates have in their lunch boxes. So my go-to treat is homemade muffins. There are so many options when it comes to muffins. Practically every fruit there is can be turned into a delicious muffin. So back to the recipe. I have discovered the most amazing food blogger. She calls herself Phoodie and she can be found at  . I came across her Banana and Coconut Muffins the other day. Seriously, they are so easy to make and you don't even have to use the whizzer. In fact, it's better that you don't. Make sure you don't overmix.  And as she says, the recipe is flexible. You can use whatever fruit you like. And these are how mine turned out! The recipe can be found at Happy baking!
