I am so excited that we are heading into the warmer months now because it means that I can start to create my favorite healthy frozen treats again that I haven't dared touch through this cold winter! One of those treats being Icy poles created in my zipzicle packs.

For everyone out there (and especially the mummas with kiddies) you can now ditch the sugar filled, food dye ridden icy poles purchased in the supermarket and easily create your own homemade ones.

Zipcycles are re-usable icy pole sleeves with a zip-lock opening that you can fill with whatever you desire. This gives you the opportunity to create healthy treats that both you and your kids will love, and in my opinion they taste a heap better! On top of that you are reducing your amount of plastic waste being produced by being able to reuse the sleeves again and again.

SO below I am going to share my favorite healthy icy pole recipes that are both delicious, simple and also beneficial for you :)

TROPICAL MANGO & LIME

Mango is my most favorite summer fruit and this combination I absolutely love!

*Fills 6 Zipzicles*

2 x cup mango

2 x cup kiwi fruit

1/2 x cup of pineapple

1 x squeeze of fresh lime

1/3 x cup of water

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into your packs and freeze.

WATERMELON & BERRY

*Fills 6 zipzicles*

The perfect natural hydration. This Icy pole is perfect for hot days when you're feeling dehydrated or a little bluhh.

2 x cups chopped watermelon

2 x cups chopped strawberries

1/2 cup coconut water

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour into your packs and freeze.

ZESTY ORANGE

Refreshing and full of zest and flavor.

2 x cups of chopped oranges

1 x cup soda water

2 x cups chopped pineapple

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour into your packs and freeze.

Of course the possibilities are endless when it comes to making your own creations and you can have such fun with it. Another tip for the grown ups would be to add a tiny bit of your choice of alcohol to make a fun summer refresher for the adults - why should the kids enjoy all the treats?
