Ice Lollies

.

Ice lollies are not only a treat on a summer's day, but are a very good way to make a dent in your '5 a day'. Making your own and choosing healthy, fresh ingredients will result in delicious and nutritious lollies rather than the sugar laden varieties often sold in shops.

Lolly moulds and sticks can be found in cook shops and supermarkets and they are so quick and easy to make. Most recipes simply require you to blend the ingredients, pour into moulds and then freeze - what could be easier?

Blackberry and Peach Lollies

  • 1 cup of blackberries
  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled, stoned and chopped into chunks
  • 150ml coconut water

Place all the ingredients into a jug and blend until smooth with the Hand Blender wand. Pour into the moulds and freeze. Coconut water is a good alternative to use in lollies over water or lemonade. Packed with electrolytes, it is great to rehydrate your body on a hot day.

Cherry Lollies

  • 250g cherries, stones removed
  • 200g thick, natural yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs honey (optional)
  • Zest of one, unwaxed lemon

Blend all the ingredients together, pour into the moulds and freeze. This is a good basic recipe, where you could try swapping the cherries for raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or other soft fruits.

Pimms Lollies

  • 300ml Pimms
  • 600ml flat lemonade
  • 1 orange, peeled, sliced and halved
  • ½ cucumber, sliced and halved
  • Punnet of strawberries, quartered
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves

Into each mould place slices of orange, cucumber, strawberry and 2-3 mint leaves. Mix the flat lemonade with the Pimms and pour into the moulds, over the fruit pieces. TIP: swap lemonade for flat ginger beer for a bit of a different taste.

Top Lolly Making Tips:

  • Don't pour the lolly mixture right up to the top of the mould; leave a gap to allow for the mixture to expand while it freezes.
  • Leave in the freezer for an hour to start setting before inserting wooden sticks. Alternatively, place a pic of foil over the top of the mould and make slits for the sticks to slide into.
  • Running the mould under warm water for a few seconds will help remove the lollies from the mould more easily.
  • Yogurt takes longer to freeze than juice - for the best results leave to freeze for a minimum of six hours, or overnight.
