Superfood for Super-Ice: Chia ice cream with coconut and kiwi.


  • 6 ice cream on a stick moulds
  • 2 kiwi fruits
  • 300ml of coconut milk
  • 5 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup


Stir the coconut milk, chia seed and agave syrup together in a bowl until smooth. Peel the kiwis, cut them into slices and lay them into the moulds. Pour in the coconut-chia mixture and freeze for at least 5 hours.

Tip: If you put the slices of kiwi on the sides of the moulds, the ice sticks look great!

Bananas? Chocolate? Let’s have chocolate bananas on a stick.


  • 6 wooden ice cream sticks
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 150g of cooking chocolate (choose dark or milk depending on taste)
  • Toppings to suit (i.e. chopped almonds, grated coconut, sprinkles)


Peel and halve the bananas and push a stalk or a chopstick in each half. Place the banana halves on a cutting board and freeze them for about 3 hours. Melt the chocolate (preferably in the water bath) and spread the toppings on grease-proof paper. Dip each of the bananas into the melted chocolate and quickly roll them into your chosen toppings. Allow to cool and enjoy or simply freeze them.

Tip: You can also use chocolate sticks in place of wooden ice cream sticks.

Ice, ice, watermelon: Watermelon on a stick.


  • Wooden ice cream sticks
  • One ripe, sweet watermelon
  • Shaping moulds


Cut the watermelon into small triangles and if necessary remove the seeds. Or use the moulds to cut out shapes as desired. Push an ice cream stick into each triangle, if necessary cut a small slit with a knife. Put the watermelon triangles in the freezer compartment until they are completely frozen.

Tip: You can also dip the melon triangles in chocolate before you freeze them.
