Home made ice lollies are so easy to make, the kids can help you make them (which seems to make them more attractive to eat!) and you can put really healthy ingredients into them. I think that’s a win win win situation!
There are endless recipes and combinations from basic fruit juices (apple, orange etc) to multi ingredient smoothies. You can use old mini yogurt pots, ice trays for mini ice lollies, or buy moulds (Amazon have a good selection of moulds and sticks). Here are some recipe ideas.
Cut up a watermelon, remove seeds and blend, pour into moulds and freeze.
- Frozen Yogurt
You can either use bought lemonade or make your own, my kids love making their own lemonade, you can find the recipe here. Of course you can use any fizzy drinks, just check the ingredients first!

I hope that’s given you a few ideas, of course you could also make some grown up versions too, Pimms, gin and tonic, cider, pina colada, the options and fun are endless!
Happy ice lolly making!
