Creamy Peach and Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles

Get creative with Oppo and Tea Pigs this weekend and make your own ice tea popsicles. These low sugar, low calories treats couldn’t be easier to make. In fact, the only tricky bit is waiting for the popsicles to freeze… 

Ingredients

Makes 4 popsicles

  • 250 ml boiling water
  • 1 Tea Pigs Peach Lemonade teabag
  • 1 tub Oppo Madagascan Vanilla ice cream
  • 100g fresh raspberries
  • Stevia drops (optional)
  • 4 ice-lolly sticks

Method

  1. To start, brew your tea bag in boiling water. Once the tea has brewed to your preferred strength add some stevia to sweeten. Remove the tea bag and pop into the fridge to cool
  2. To make your raspberry coulis: blend the raspberries until they are smooth and set aside
  3. Take your ice cream out of the freezer and leave it to soften a little (about 20 minutes at room temperature should do it)
  4. Take 4 small glasses (or if you’re especially prepared you can use a cake pop mould) and pour ¼ of the tea into each
  5. Next mix ¼ of the ice cream with the raspberry coulis and distribute this bright pink mixture equally into each glass
  6. Finally stir up the remaining ice cream until it resembles thick cream and add it equally into each glass
  7. Pop your glasses into the freezer to set and half way through (when the ice cream is just starting to firm up) pop a popsicle stick into the centre of each
  8. When your popsicles are completely set they are ready to enjoy. You can get them out of their moulds by dunking each glass in warm water for a few seconds and then giving the stick a twist to ease them out from the sides

    Core Your Own Tub

    Core Your Own Tub

    Sometimes a simple scoop is enough, but who doesn't love getting creative with their ice cream? Check out our fun, easy step-by-step method for creating your own cored tub of Oppo and have some (delicious) fun.

    What you'll need

    • A 500ml tub of Oppo (your choice which!)
    • Core fillings such as nut butter, caramel or chocolate sauce
    • An apple corer

    1. Grab your flavour

    Grab a tub of your favourite flavour and leave it to sit out of the freezer for 5 minutes to soften (this makes the coring easier).

    2. Create your core

    Using an apple corer, drill a cavity down the centre of the tub making sure to go the whole way down. Then pull the corer out to remove some of the ice cream (feel free to nibble on this bit – don’t waste it!).

    3. Pour your core!

    Grab your favorite sauces, syrups and nut butters and fill that core to the brim. Get creative.

    4. Scoop Your Masterpiece

    Now you can tuck into a serving of healthy indulgence marbled with saucy deliciousness. Or alternatively, just pop the tub back into the freezer for when those cravings hit later... Enjoy!

    3. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave and retrieve the firmed-up donut pops.
    4. Dip each donut into the chocolate and pop them onto a rack and when all the pops are coated place them back into the freezer to harden.

    Salted Caramel Ice Crème brûlée

    What could be more satisfying than cracking through the crunchy top of a Crème Brûlée to reveal a sweet and creamy layer beneath? Unlike the traditional recipe though, which relies on plenty of sugar and heavy cream, our reinvention of this classic dessert takes a healthier approach. Plus, it's easier to make than you might think. Read on to find out how.

    Ingredients (serves 4)

    • 1 tub Oppo Salted Caramel
    • 4tsp coconut sugar
    • A pinch of Maldon Salt

    Method

    1. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to sit at room temperature to soften for 10-20 minutes.
    2. Distribute the ice cream between four heatproof ramekins and smooth out each with the back of a spoon until the surface inside each is flat and smooth.
    3. Pop the ramekins back into the freezer for at least 30 minutes so that the ice cream firms up hard.
    4. Retrieve the ramekins from the freezer and sprinkle a teaspoon of coconut sugar onto the surface of each.
    5. Use a blow touch to gently brûlée the coconut sugar until it starts bubbling and caramelising (or alternatively, pop them under a hot grill for 3-5 minutes). Then get the ramekins back into the freezer.
    6. When you’re ready to tuck in simply retrieve your crème brulee, sprinkle a few grains of salt on top, grab a spoon and tap away.
