FRUIT ICE LOLLIES
 
These easy healthy recipes for making summer desserts or fruit snacks are a simple way to include a little extra fruit into your family's diet in a fun and creative way. A minimum of two different fruits are used for each ice lolly.

All the ice lollies are made with 100% fruit. Fruit is a good source of vitamins and naturally sweet, so a great ingredient for making some healthy treats without the need to add sugar. The sweetness for the ice lollies is acquired by timing the ripeness of the fruit correctly which is essential for optimum colour, flavour and sweetness as an unripe fruit can spoil and otherwise tasty ice lolly.

The ice lollies can be quick and easy to make by simply blending the prepared fruit together and freezing it in the ice lolly moulds. Alternatively you can enjoy some fruit craft to make the ice lollies more enticing to eat and create some healthy, tasty, colourful treats as a result.

On this page there are three different ice lollies which are made using the same fruit recipe. Please feel free to explore this website for ice lolly recipes, tips and inspiration to make exciting ice lollies for the kids and encourage healthy eating habits.
