ICE LOLLIES
 
As you can see I love making ice lollies with 100% fruit and thought you'd like to share some simple tips and ideas. Please feel free to explore this website for ice lolly recipes and inspiration.

These natural fruit flavoured ice lollies are a simple way of encouraging children to develop healthy eating habits and enjoy the unsweetened taste of food. A minimum of two different fruits are blended together for each colour/flavour. The ice lollies can be used as a healthy treat, snack or dessert.

More tips and recipes can be found in the fruit ice lolly recipe booklet. This booklet may appeal to anyone wishing to make healthier eating choices, parents, grandparents and individuals who love being creative in the kitchen, a handy gift for Christmas.

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 to entice the kids. 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.
