Mango and apple ice treats
- 1 medium mango, peeled
- 1 medium apple, peeled, cored and diced
You will also need:
- 1 x ice cube tray
- 1 x baby fruit net (available from supermarket baby section)
Cut the flesh off the mango and mash with a fork in a small bowl until smooth.
Half fill all the blocks in your ice tray with the mango puree. Freeze for 2 hours or until frozen solid.
Place apples in a saucepan and just cover with water. Bring to the boil over a medium-high heat and then simmer on medium for 5 minutes or until cooked through.
Puree apples in a blender with 1/4 cup only of the cooking water. Remove ice cube tray of mango from freezer, and fill each block with apple puree. Freeze for 2 hours again or until solid.
Remove blocks from tray and place one in a fruit net. Bang a little with the back of a spoon to soften slightly and let baby at it!
