The British Summer has definitely been here this week! This heatwave has surely made us craving anything ice cold, and these lollies will surely hit the spot! The plus of these is that they are super healthy also, so you don’t need to feel any guilt having these refreshing coolers. Purely fruit, yoghurt and a dash of maple syrup, so so simple yet so delicious!
I’ve made Raspberry, Cherry and Blueberry Ice lollies, but you can get creative with these!
Blender: The blender is used to puree the raspberries, cherries or blueberries up into liquid form! You can also use a food processor for this.
Ice lolly Moulds: Making ice lollies, of course, requires some sort of ice lolly/popsicle mould. There are loads out there, you can find loads on amazon, here is the one I used.
Greek Yogurt: I like to use at least a 2% fat Greek yogurt for these Berry Ice Lollies, as the fat aids in the cream texture! Feel free to use dairy free yogurt to make these vegan! I’m loving coconut yoghurt at the moment, this will be a great addition!
Raspberries: I love raspberries. Especially right now when they are in season and taste so sweet. Make sure to use fresh raspberries to get the best flavour.
Blueberries: Blueberries are such a great fruit, so healthy with so many vitamins and antioxidants which aid a good and healthy lifestyle. Make sure to chuck loads of these in your lollies!
Cherries: It’s the season of cherries right now.. Yay! This is when they are at their best and are so sweet! I recommend you to buy loads, chop them up and put in your freezer. then you can have them for smoothies, desserts and these ice lollies all year round!
Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is a natural sweetener extracted from maple trees. This sweetener is totally optional in these lollies – if you prefer a sweeter lolly add as much maple syrup as you want, but if you prefer a lighter popsicle you can just omit it! Feel free to substitute gold syrup or honey if you want!
Food Coloring: The food coloring is also obviously optional! Without the food colouring these popsicles are a very light pink colour.
