@wholesomepatisserie – Marble Yoghurt Popsicles

A guilt-free sweet treat that also looks incredible!

@wholesomepatisserie - Marble Yoghurt Popsicles

Ingredients 

2 cups (500g) Cocobella Coconut Yoghurt – Natural

Optional flavourings: 1 Tbsp. vanilla bean extract

2 drops black food gel colouring**

 

Materials

4-hole popsicle mould

Wooden popsicle sticks

 

Method

Add yoghurt to a large mixing bowl. If adding any flavourings and stir them through now, before the colouring.

Drop 2 drops of the black gel food colouring on top of the yoghurt.

Take a wooden skewer or a butter knife and gently swirl colouring into the yoghurt creating a marble effect, ensuring not to completely mix them together. NOTE: It will look like the colouring has just swirled on top of the yoghurt and not through the entire yoghurt, this is ok because you want more white than black.

Gently spoon yoghurt and divide yoghurt evenly into a 4-hole popsicle mould.

Place in freezer and freeze for 4-6 hours or ideally, overnight.

To remove, sit each popsicle mould in a jug of warm water until the popsicles slowly release from the moulds. Alternatively, place each one under running warm water until they release. Enjoy!

Pre-heat your oven to 200’c. Line a rectangular slice tray with baking paper and set aside.

Place the bananas, oats, almond Butter, coconut oil, cinnamon, chia seeds, coconut milk and maple syrup into a blender and blitz until smooth. Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl and add in the baking powder, give a light stir before adding the frozen blueberries, leaving a few blueberries aside to top. Pour the cake batter into your lined slice tray and top with remaining Blueberries. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes. One cooked through, let it cool out of the oven for 10 minutes while you prepare the blueberry sauce. Place blueberries into a bowl and cook on a medium heat for 1-2 minutes (in a pan or your microwave) until its juices release and start to thicken. Serve a slice of the cake with Cocobella Coconut Yoghurt and a generous spoon of the blueberry sauce.
