My kids love a lolly in the hot weather… actually even on a rainy day! As we never get a visit from the ice cream man we have tried our hand at creating our own! Have a go yourself and share any new recipes your kids love in the Wharfedale Mumbler Chat Group!
SUPER JUICE LOLLIES
Cordial x 3 flavours
- Place cut up chunks of orange or satsuma in a lolly mould. (Grated carrot is also yummy!)
- Mix the first cordial to taste and add to the lolly mould until 1/3 full.
- Freeze for 2 hours.
- Repeat with a different flavoured cordial and different fruit chunks and fill the mould until 2/3 full. Freeze again.
- Repeat with the final cordial until full & freeze for another 2 hours.
STRAWBERRY ICE LOLLIES
100ml natural yoghurt (or apple or orange juice)
1 teaspoon honey
- Blend 250g of strawberries, 100ml natural yoghurt (or apple or orange juice) and 1 teaspoon honey in a bowl.
- Divide the strawberry mixture between 4 ice lolly moulds, then pop a stick into each one.
- Put the ice lollies in the freezer for at least 4 hours or until solid.
RASPBERRY YOGHURT LOLLIES
90g caster sugar or Splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
500g low-fat natural yoghurt
100g melted white chocolate
60g 100’s & Thousands
You will also need 6 or 8 ice lolly moulds
- Mix the raspberries and vanilla extract in a bowl, add the caster sugar. Mash the fruit until the sugar has dissolved.
- Mix in low-fat natural yoghurt.
- Pour into 6 or 8 ice-lolly moulds and freeze for around 4 hours.
- Once frozen, take them out of the moulds and dip tips of the lollies in melted white chocolate, then quickly dip them in the 100’s & 1000’s! Serve as soon as the chocolate has set!
This is a favourite in our house and its SUPER simple!
- Crush the meringue and mix it into the yoghurt, add the raspberries.
- You can eat it as it is or put it in the freezer to make a great alternative to ice cream!
Small tin of Condensed Milk
- Blend the strawberries and add the milk and condensed milk.
- Mix until smooth and add to the lolly moulds.
- Freeze for 4 1/2 hours.
