BEETROOT BLUEBERRY POPS
Kids friendly Beetroot Blueberry Pops with no added sugar, food colour or additives. A vibrant colourful immunity boosting frozen snack to enjoy during the hot season.
- 1 medium beetroot (about 1 cup chopped)
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- ½ cup grapes
- ¾ cup water
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- generous pinch of salt
Peel and boil or roast the beetroot.
When it cools down a bit chop it into pieces.
Add beetroot, blueberries, grapes, water, lemon juice and salt into a blender.
Blend the mixture till you get a smooth thick liquid.
Pour the mixture into ice pop or lolly moulds.
Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours or more.
To de mold, run the molds under tap water.
Gently pull the pops out of the molds and serve immediately.
Add maple syrup, honey or agave nectar for a more sweetish pop.
You can strain the liquid to remove any beetroot fibres if serving very young kids.
If you don't have pop or lolly molds, freeze the juice in an ice tray or small bowls. Make sure you cover it with foil.
