Rainbow Popsicle for the Thermomix®

Rainbow Popsicle for the Thermomix®

Rainbows can easily put a smile to the faces of kids and adults. But how would you feel if you can eat rainbows (rainbow popsicles, that is) on a hot day? 

Sounds exciting but a lot of people say that it’s very challenging to make because of colours mixing all together once you try to add one layer on top of another.

Well, the key to making these beautiful rainbow popsicles is by carefully adding one flavour on top of another. Others freeze the lower portion first before adding another layer.

But today, I’ll be sharing with you a recipe plus my technique where you’ll not need to spend too much time in preparing these babies. Best of all, this recipe is sugar-free.

Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients for each Rainbow Layer:

MAGENTA LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 80g sliced canned beetroot
  • 140g frozen strawberries or raspberries

PURPLE LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 140g frozen mixed berries

BLUE LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 120g frozen pineapple pieces
  • ½ tsp blue food colouring

GREEN LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 30g baby spinach leaves
  • 120g frozen pineapple pieces

YELLOW LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 120g frozen pineapple pieces

ORANGE LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 120g frozen peaches
  • 1 small orange
  • 60g frozen mango

RED LAYER

  • 120g Greek yoghurt
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 70g frozen raspberries
  • 70g frozen strawberries

Directions:

FOREACH RAINBOW COLOUR

  1. Place all the ingredients in a clean Thermomix® bowl and blend 20 sec/Speed 8. 
  2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  3. Blend for a further 20 sec/Speed 8
  4. Repeat the process until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
  5. Transfer the mix to a bowl or container, rinse the Thermomix® bowl and prep the next rainbow colour.

TO ASSEMBLE THE RAINBOW POPSICLES

  1. Carefully layer each colour smoothie in a popsicle mold in order of the colours of the rainbow.
  2. Layer the smoothies in a silicone ice pop mold or stainless steel popsicle mold. Use a spoon or tablespoon for layering the smoothie mixture into the mold. It’s natural for the layers to mix a little, but using a spoon in adding the smoothies into the mold instead of pouring the smoothie in from a glass leaves better results.
  3. Once the molds have been filled, simply add the sticks or lids and freeze the popsicles overnight.
  4. To remove the popsicles from the mold, just fill a large bowl or basin with room temperature water and place the mold in the water. Make sure the water does not go above the top of the mold.
  5. Allow the mold to sit in the water for a couple of seconds so you can remove the pops easily.
  6. Try wiggling a popsicle free. If it still feels tough, allow them to set in the water a few more seconds.
  7. Once you've removed all of the popsicles from the mold, enjoy and wrap the extras in plastic wrap and put it back to the freezer.

This recipe will make 30 of rainbow popsicles! You can definitely cut each smoothie recipe in half if you'd prefer to not have tons of extra smoothie. And if you oppose to using a small amount of blue food colouring to achieve the blue layer, it's totally fine to skip that layer!
