Summer fruit & ginger beer ice-blocks
Prep 20 mins + overnight freezing time | Makes 6
An ultra-cool grown-up version of an ice-block, these are excellent to serve after dinner on hot summer evenings!
2 ripe white peaches
2 passionfruit, pulp removed
1⁄4 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
2 tbs lime juice
1 tbs icing sugar
1 cup ginger beer
*Note, dip the tip of the ice-block moulds in hot water for a few seconds if pops are difficult to remove from the moulds.
Step 1 Place peaches in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and stand for 30 seconds. Refresh in cold water and peel. Finely chop peach flesh and place in a bowl. Add passionfruit pulp, mint and lime juice. Sprinkle with icing sugar and stand for 10 minutes.
Step 2 Pour ginger beer over fruit and stir to combine. Spoon mixture into 6 ice-block moulds (about 1/3 cup each), gently tap moulds on a bench to remove any air bubbles. Freeze overnight. Remove ice-blocks from moulds* to serve.
