Tropical Ice-Block With Yoghurt

During hot summer afternoon, I am sure one or two of these ice-pops/ice-blocks would be great to ease the summer heat and at the same time cool down  your warm and perspired body system. These icy treat can be made by freezing coloured or flavoured liquid such as fruit juice around a stick. Once the liquid freezes solid, the stick can be used as a handle to hold the ice-pop too.

Apart from my "[Durian or Avocado] Sago Gula Melaka" (read more HERE) which fulfil this month Aspiring Bakers theme on "Fruit", I would also like to submit this "Tropical Ice-Block with Yoghurt" as the next following post. This fruity ice-block use 3 different types of tropical fruits such as Mango, Orange and Passionfruits which gives the dessert a nice bright orangy colour which resemble bright sunny day.

Since it is Mango season now, you can easily grab a couples of sweet and decent mango at any supermarkets with valuable price as low as 3 for S$2.00.

Ingredients: (makes 4 - 6, 1/4 cup capacity ice-block)
100ml Plain/Mango Yoghurt
1 Medium Mango, sliced and cubes
100ml(1/2 cup)Fresh Orange Juice
2 - 3 Medium Passionfruit, halved

~ You can get this 4 - 6 holes, 1/4 cup capacity ice-block mould from Daiso(Singapore readers).

~ Cut passionfruit in half, using a teaspoon, scoop passionfruit pulp from halves.

1. Spoon 1 tablespoon yoghurt into each ice-block mould.

2. Freeze for 1 hour or until just firm.

3. Blend Mango and orange juice until smooth, stir in passionfruit pulp.

4. Carefully spoon/pour mango mixture pour yoghurt in moulds.

5. Place lids on moulds, freeze for 4 hours or until frozen.

6. To serve, stand the ice-blocks at room temperature for 1 - 2 minutes before removing it from mould.

  For a switch of different flavour, you can also make use of Pineapple, Mango and Passionfruits for this recipes to achieve a more refreshing taste. If fresh Mango is not available at your area, you can always replace it with pre-packed mango juice.

I am submitting this to Aspiring Bakers #5 : Fruity March (March 2011) hosted by Jess @ Bakericious.
