Sour cherry, currant and yoghurt ices

This is another variant on the yoghurt ices for summer eating. I like to have some in the freezer for a cool snack when the mercury rises, and even when it doesn't! This batch is done with dried sour cherries and currants. Because the fruit is dried, I chose to let the mixture sit for a while to allow the fruit to absorb some of the moisture before freezing.  But if you are in a hurry, you could just do them in one hit. The amounts given make four icy poles using my moulds, but yours may need the measurements to be increased or decreased depending on mould size.


8 tbs strained yoghurt (aka Greek yoghurt)
2 tbs dried sour cherries
2 tbs currants


Place yoghurt and fruit in bowl or jug
Mix together until they are well-combined
Leave to sit for a couple of hours to allow the fruit to absorb some of the moisture
Spoon into icy pole moulds and insert sticks/lids
Freeze for at least five hours or until solid (overnight is good)
Loosen from mould by holding under warm water
