Recipe type: dessert

Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 punnet of strawberries (250g), hulled and frozen
  • ⅔ C frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp (20ml) vinocotto or caramelised balsamic
  • 100ml bubbly (use a dry cider or prosecco)
How to make it
  1. You can either buy your strawberries frozen or do as I do and wash, hull and freeze berries in small portions in snap lock bags ready for use.
  2. Weigh out 250g of strawberries (or just grab a big handful, the weight is just a guideline) and grab your raspberries. Put them both in a food processor and pulse until they have turned into shards of pink and red. Scrape down the sides.
  3. Add the balsamic vinegar or vinocotto and process on low until the mixture is a mostly smooth with a few small chunks.
  4. Remove the blade of the food processor, pour in your bubbly and stir gently with a spatula.
  5. Spoon the mixture (it will be too thick to pour) into six small popsicle moulds and give them a big old thump on the table to get rid of any big bubbles. You can also use a skewer to prod the mix around to do the same.
  6. Push a paddlepop stick into the top of each. The mixture will be thick enough to hold the stick in place without any additional work on your part,
  7. Freeze for at least three hours and serve frozen (or upended in a glass with more bubbly poured over the top!
