Passionfruit icy poles

Passionfruit had a golden age when I was a child. There were passionfruit soft drinks, there was barely a pavlova eaten that didn't have it covering the top, and yes – there was even a certain fruit-flavoured sparkling wine beverage in the mix when we got a little older, too. *Note: you will need 8 icy pole freezer moulds


2 x 170g cans passionfruit pulp in syrup

350ml coconut water


1. Combine the entire contents of the cans of passionfruit pulp with the coconut water and mix well. Strain through a sieve to remove the seeds (but push through any pulp).

2. Divide the mixture between the compartments of icy pole moulds, but do not fill completely to the top. Add a few passionfruit seeds to each compartment, then add wooden sticks and freeze for at least 6 hours.
