Summer is comming towards an end for a lot of you folks, but fortunately or unfortunately its always summer in Ghana. Located only a few degrees the north of the equator this tropical county never really experiences the cold weather. Its interesting to know that the Greenwich Meridian also passes through Ghana, specifically through the industrial city of Ghana-Tema ( where i live); so it is said that Ghana is closest to the center of the world geographically than any other country. Well that’s got nothing to do with my Nectarine and Honey Yogurt Lollies but just thought you’d like to know ๐Ÿ™‚ So comming back to my attraction of the day … They are healthy , they are dead easy to make , look pretty , best to beat the heat , light and refreshing , can easily substitute with any fruit … and i can go on and on and on. I make these every time my i start looking at catalog’s to buy an ice cream maker. I’ve been really avoiding it as i know for sure everything that comes out of that machine is going straight to my belly and then the back side as my hubby doesn’t like anything sweet and i more than make up for his share. So this healthy option to satisfy that craving. Good for all big n small, definately a hit with the kids as well :))

Ingredients
  • 2 nectarines, 1 pureed and 1 cubed
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 100 -150 ml low fat yogurt depending on your mold size

All you have to do is mix the yogurt, honey and pureed nectarines well. Add the chopped nectarines, pour in the molds and put in a stick and freeze. Couldn’t be easier !
makes 4

And last but not the least I’d like to thank all my wonderful friends for giving me your kind support and voting for me. This really feels special as i never knew so many of you loved my blog . And for those of you who missed out heres the link . I think the voting will go on till the end of the year so i wont stop talking about it … atleast till i see my name in the 1st 3 … hehe … well theres no harm in trying :p

Is it that easy? I’ll make them tomorrow for my 2-year-old, he loves all three ingredients, either seperate or combined. And obviously he adores ice cream ๐Ÿ™‚

Have to try this…was just thinking how summer is ending, well ended and can’t let go…
Anyway, sounds easy, healthy yet tasty!

Hi Kate, that’s such a wonderful way to accentuate the taste of those ripe nectarines. Nectarines are my fav. stone-fruits. Then plums, then peaches, then apricots. Actually I love it all. I would like to try this in summer. It’s a good alternative to ice-cream.

Lovely photos (as usual!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Question: how long did it take for yours to freeze? Thanks! I made 4 out of nectarine and 4 out of strawberry (the boyfriend doesn’t like nectarines) and took lots of photos, I’ll send a link when it’s all ready!

noreply@blogger.com (Kate)

Hello nixtress , i froze them over night. I think strawberries would taste real nice …. nectarines can sometime be a little tart , so i understand why he doesn’t favour them :)) Cant wait to see your photos.

noreply@blogger.com (nixtress)

Here are mine! That was a lot of fun to do and I can’t wait to try them this afternoon! Thanks for the inspiration, Kate!

OOH! those looks yummy. I might try them with soy yoghurt instead! Luckily they’ve got an apricot and mango flavour at the supermarket near my place, might compliment the nectarines well! =)

Well it is only coming into summer here in Australia so I will be ready for it with this recipe. These sound absolutely delicious and so healthy. I would assume you could substitute the fruit. Strawberries would be nice. I really like your blog by the way. Hope you can take some time to visit mine at: http://www.only-cookware.com/blog/

I love that photo, it illustrates the beauty of the recipe perfectly. I love this recipe so much because of the honey.
I actually have three different varieties of honey at home (I buy them from http://www.holyfoodimports.com) and I am always looking for new ways to try the honeys and this recipe was perfect. My family loved them.
