It couldn’t be easier to make your own refreshing icy poles, and this recipe uses only two ingredients which you’ll always have on hand in summer. These natural icy treats are so much healthier than the sugar-laden store-bought variety so they’re great for kids. Try different stonefruit, like plums, apricots or peaches, or make a colourful combination.

Serves: 6


2 yellow nectarines, stones removed and cut into thin slices
1 1/2 cups orange juice

6 icy pole moulds


1. Divide the nectarine between the icy pole holes. Fill up with the orange juice and freeze overnight or until frozen.
