Summer To Do List: DIY Healthy Fruit Ice-Lollies

 
Here's something you should know about me: I love ice-lollies and ice cream. I also love fruit and especially strawberries and bananas. On today's post I'm going to share my recipe of how to make these delicious (honestly) ice lollies that are great substitutes for unhealthy snacks and desserts.

 I didn't use many measurements for this, please forgive me.
Here is what you'll need:
- Ice-Lolly moulds, mine are from Tesco's garden section at the great price of only £1.50 each. I have x2 moulds in sets of 4s. All together this creates 8 lollies.
- A large punnet of strawberries and 2 ripe bananas. (any fruits of your choice, this excludes apples, pears, etc.)
- An average sized tub of Low Fat Natural Yogurt.
- Icing Sugar.
- A blender. If you don't have one then you can use a fork and mush up the fruits by hand.
- Sieve.

 Step 1: Cut up strawberries, it doesn't need to be perfect because they are going to be blended. Remove the stalk and leaves and make sure they are cut down small enough to blend (or mash).

Step 2: Blend the strawberries well. Make sure you try and get rid of all the lumps. Then pour the liquid into a bowl, via the sieve. This can remove large seeds and strawberry lumps.

Step 3: Add around 8 heaped table spoons of yogurt until the mixture is a pale pink.

Step 4: When adding the icing sugar you add as much as you feel is necessary. You will have to add about 4 heaped tea spoons into the mixture, whilst mixing. From then on you can taste then add until it is at the sweetness you prefer.

Step 5: Pour the finished mixture into a jug. This will make it easier to pour into the moulds.

 
 
Step 6: Pour the mixture into the moulds at a fill line (if one is given). Yogurt doesn't expand in the freezer so don't worry about that.
 
Step 7: Repeat Steps 1-6 with your other chosen fruit, I chose banana.
 
Step 8: Once both of the moulds are full, gently tap them against the table/work bench to release air and level out the mixture.
 
Step 9: They are ready to go into the freezer! They should take minimum 4.5 hours to freeze but I advise that you leave them longer.
 
You then have delicious, fruity ice-lollies.
You can do anything with these, you can freeze Innocent smoothies and even add slices of fruit.
They are great for things to do for the family and friends.
 
What's your favourite flavour ice-lolly?

  2. Those look delicious! I luv a good strawberry smoothie, so a strawberry smoothie popsicle would be amazing! I don't have popsicles very often anymore now that I think about it, but when I was younger I used to luv freezies & those cheap popsicles that were pretty much just water and sugar haha not quite as healthy as a 100% fruit popsicle I don't think...still good though! ;)
