Kids home for school holidays? Turn a tasty treat into a 2 day activity that the kids can help with! Making your own ice-blocks at home is always a hit! These are a tart blend of creamy, tangy goodness. When the kids help Mae them- it increases the anticipation and fun of eating them the next day.
Helpful tip- for safety- adults may want to make the syrup in advance of the kids getting involved.
What a perfect treat for a summer's day!
What you need:
¼ cup raw sugar
1 vanilla bean, split
3/4 cup water

Remove vanilla bean and cool the mixture.
Blend cooled syrup and raspberries until smooth.
