5 Minute Healthy Home-Made Ice Lollies.

We’ve had great weather here in Thurles, Co. Tipperary in recent days and nothing goes better with blue skies and sunshine than an ice lolly.

These 5 minute healthy homemade ice lollies are a great way to save money and sneak fresh fruit and yoghurt into children. They are so quick and delicious they will never reach for sugary shop purchased ice pops, ever again.

To make these ice lollies you will need an ice lolly mould. There are lots of moulds available occassionally to buy in local supermarkets, but the ones used in our picture are the sturdy Nuby/Nuk Mini Fruitsicle Moulds, available to buy online HERE.

Ingredients:

Strawberries.
Glenisk strawberry yoghurt with no added sugar.

Method:

For the strawberry lollies, simply wash, hull and then mash the strawberries and pour into your mould. Then place into your freezer for a couple of hours, until frozen solid.

For yoghurt lollies, chop up a strawberry into small chunks. Stir the strawberry chunks through the youghurt, pour into your mould and freeze for a couple of hours until frozen solid.

Once ready, remove the lollies from their moulds and leave them for a few minutes to thaw slightly so they aren’t too cold. Alternatively, you can rinse the lolly quickly with water to defrost slightly, before serving.

Other Fruit Lolly Flavours:

You can experiment to make lots of other fruit flavours, including orange, mango, kiwi, watermelon, blueberries and pineapple.

As above, for other fruit lollies, simply wash, mash, pour and freeze, but depending on the fruit you may need to add some water.

For other yoghurt flavored ice lollies make sure to select a yoghurt and fruit that complement each other.
