Half Time Ices

Half Time Ices

Recipe by Sally Brown and Kate Morris. Makes 1

60 minutes This should take about 60 mins

You will need:

  • 1 medium orange
  • 3-4 fresh strawberries
  • Work mat
  • Sharp knife (for adult use only)
  • Large jug
  • Dessert spoon
  • Lidded freezer safe container (for example, a lidded plastic pudding basin)
  • Table knife

Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.

What to do:

Step 1

Before making, wash your hands and put an apron on.

Step 2

Ask an adult to cut the top off of the orange approximately 1/3 of the way down – this will become the lid of your Half Time Ices. Wash the strawberries in clean water.

Step 3

Put the orange in a large jug and use the dessert spoon to scoop out as much flesh as you can. The jug will catch the juices so that you can pour them back in easily later. Once you have scooped out all of the flesh, place the empty orange in to a freezer safe container such as a pudding bowl.

Step 4

Twist and pull the stalks off of the strawberries. This is called hulling. Put each strawberry on the work mat – if you put it with the bottom up and the top down then it will wobble less. Then ask an adult to cut the strawberries into smaller pieces. Put these strawberry pieces into the empty orange.

Step 5

Next pour the juicy mixture back into the orange. You may need a little water to top it up so it’s full. Put the lid of the orange back on top, then add the lid of the freezer safe container and ask an adult to place it in the freezer for at least two hours.
