You might feel like you’re cheating on your healthy habits, but you’re kind of NOT, thanks to Greek yoghurt. 

Perfect for beating the heat, these mint flavoured yoghurt ice-blocks are lickety-split good.

Chocolate mint ice blocks are loved by most – and this is an awesome, slightly healthier alternative to traditional ice cream. I mean, it’s practically a guilt-free health food.

Pop sticks and ice cream moulds at the ready? Let’s mix.


Chocolate Dipped Mint Yoghurt Ice Blocks recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Greek yoghurt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • green food colouring

For the chocolate shell

  • 175g chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

Method

  1. Whisk together the yoghurt, milk, peppermint extract, vanilla bean paste and honey.
  2. Add a few drops of green food colouring and mix well. Repeat with the food colouring until you’ve reached a green colour you’re happy with.
  3. Next, prepare your ice block moulds. If using silicone moulds, put them on a baking tray to make it easy to transfer them to the freezer.
  4. Carefully pour the mixture into the moulds. Don’t forget to insert your pop sticks! Freeze the ice blocks for at least five hours, but preferably overnight, just to make sure they’re really set.
  5. To make the chocolate shell, microwave the chocolate and coconut oil together for 30 seconds on high heat. Stir together until smooth. Add the teaspoon of vanilla and mix well to combine. Let the chocolate mixture cool to room temperature.
  6. Take your ice blocks out of the moulds and dip into the chocolate. You can either submerge them completely, drizzle them in chocolate or dip just the tops – it’s completely up to you. (Hint: Pour the chocolate into a tall cup for easy dipping). If feeling particularly indulgent, dip them twice. Return to a lined tray and keep in the freezer or serve them immediately.

This recipe yields approximately six ice blocks, depending on the size of your mould.
