FRUIT ICE LOLLIES
 
I enjoy making ice lollies with 100% fruit and thought I would share some simple tips and ideas. Please feel free to explore this website for ice lolly recipes and inspiration.
All the ice lollies are made with 100% fruit and no sugar or other ingredients are added as fruit is naturally sweet. The sweetness for the ice lollies is acquired by timing the ripeness of the fruit correctly. This is essential for optimum colour, flavour and sweetness, an unripe fruit can spoil and otherwise tasty ice lolly. A mimimum of two different fruits are used in the ice lollies. The ice lollies can be used as a healthy treat, snack or dessert.

How to make ice lollies with a bit of magic
 
Adding texture (chopped up bits of fruit) and using contrasting colours and flavours creates a more interesting ice lolly. Using the same mango, pineapple and strawberry ice lolly recipe as above makes the ice lollies visually more appealing. Many different ice lollies can be made using the same fruit lolly recipe by using simple tips and techniques, some of which are demonstrated in the ice lollies below.
