As an athlete, not only is it important to train hard, but it is equally vital to fuel your body correctly through good nutrition. Whether it’s cooking or eating, I love food…like, I REALLY love food! 

Now that summer is on the way for everyone in the UK; try these healthy, iced, treats which will set you up perfectly for the day.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • A splash of milk, as needed
  • 1/2 cup stewed fruit (I used stewed plums as I had a bucket to use up, but berries would work well also)
  • 1/2 cup granola (I used my homemade granola, which you can find here)

Recipe

  • Combine the yogurt and honey in a bowl. Depending on the brand of yogurt you are using, you may need to add a splash of milk to loosen up the mixture. You want it to be fairly thick but still pourable).
  • In a separate bowl, add the granola and a couple of spoonfuls of the yogurt mixture and stir to combine (this will help it freeze better).
  • Grab some icy pole moulds, and to each one spoon in a small amount of yogurt. Next add a small dollop of stewed fruit, followed by a sprinkle of granola mixture. Continue with multiple layers of yogurt, fruit and granola until the moulds are filled. Place in the stick and freeze for around 6 hours until solid.
