ICE LOLLY TIPS

When making your own homemade ice lollies make sure the fruit you are planning to use is ripe. This is important because none of the fruit ice lolly recipes have any added sugar in them. A little forward planning may be needed as not all fruit is completely ripe when you buy it.

Not all fruit goes well together. Making patterned ice lollies is an easy way to give the children some extra fruit in a fun and creative way. The ice lollies above have been made using 2 different fruit recipes to create 3 flavours, 3 colours and a total of 5 different fruits were used.

Let your children know that the ice lollies won't be ready until the next day so they are prepared to be patient for the ice lollies to be frozen. If the ice lollies are made early morning they could be ready by tea-time depending on the size of the ice lollies or your freezer.

Orange juice helps to bring out the flavour in some of the ice lolly recipes. Simply squeeze out the orange, remove the pips and mix the pulp and orange juice with the fruit puree.  
   
   
To remove an ice lolly from its mould, once frozen, the individual mould needs to be held in a container filled with warm water or under a running tap until the ice lolly can be released.
