Excuse me, but this is very complicated (not) so it’s best you listen up.

  • Freeze a banana – this consists of putting a banana in your freezer (profound)
  • Crush up some peanuts with a large knife, or put them in a zip lock bag and smash them with a mallet. It’s really therapeutic. Trust me.
  • Pour melted chocolate into a tall glass
  • Dip your frozen banana into the chocolate, turning it into an even coat
  • Immediately roll the chocolate coated banana into the peanuts

You can serve them immediately, or wrap them up individually and freeze them for up to two weeks.

2. Put grapes...in the freezer

CALL ME NIGELLA LAWSON. This involves...

a) Buying grapes and...

b) Putting them in the freezer.

Frozen grapes is one of the best things about a hot day/life.

3. Frozen fruit cup

Okay, I really outdid myself with the frozen grapes so I will take a step back.

  • You need plastic cups
  • Cut up oranges, strawberries, bananas, pineapple and watermelon into small pieces
  • Disperse evenly into cups
  • Add a touch of lemonade
  • Add a touch of orange juice
  • Top up with water
  • Chuck in the freezer

I think I could actually win Masterchef with this outrageous recipe. It's so easy, but when they're ready, they look like you tried really hard.

Or you can make them with just one fruit, like blackcurrant. Image via iStock.

And most importantly, they taste delicious.

3. Strawberry-granola breakfast ice blocks

In case you missed it, in summer you can totally eat your breakfast frozen. Here's how you do it:

  • You need two cups of vanilla yoghurt
  • A cup of chopped up strawberries
  • Half a cup of granola
  • Blend the yoghurt with the strawberries to make a smooth, consistent texture
  • You'll need an ice block mold OR just a plastic cup. Pour the puree in and fill it up about a third of the way.
  • Sprinkle the granola in the middle
  • Top it up with some more puree and some chunky pieces of strawberry
  • Pop a paddle pop stick in the middle
  • Freeze
  • BOOM.
