Making ice lollies with fruit is easy and a simple way to increase the amount of fruit in your diet. By creating different colours, flavours and patterns you can even have a little fun along the way too. All the recipes for the home-made ice lollies have a minimum of two different fruits blended together. All you need is a small hand blender, ice lolly moulds, ripe fruit and a freezer. If you haven't got a blender use a fork to mash the fruit and create some Dapple ice lollies, which look quite effective when frozen.
Offering children a healthy treat, without added sugar, from an early age encourages them to get used to the natural unsweetened taste of food giving them a positive start in developing good healthy eating habits. Fruit ice lollies can be quickly prepared by blending the prepared fruit together and then freezing the puree in the ice lolly moulds to make the ice lollies. Alternatively they can be made even more appealing to children by creating patterns following some simple tips.

Late spring and summer is the best time to make the ice lollies because there is so much different fruit to choose from. Summer fruit can be expensive but by blending them with other less expensive fruits only small quantities are needed and it makes a real difference to the taste.

Ice lolly recipes 

Banana and pineapple ice lollies                                                                   

2 very ripe bananas
1 small tin of pineapple (220g)
and juice (optional)

Prepare the fruit and blend the bananas, pineapple and juice together. Pour into the ice lolly moulds and freeze immediately.

Makes about 6 lollies
(60 ml / 2 fl oz moulds)

This is the recipe I use most often as the ice lollies are very quick and easy to make. 

Let the 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.

Never use frozen fruit for these recipes!

How to create different ice lollies
(using mango, pineapple and strawberries)

When making your own home-made fruit ice lollies make sure the fruit you use is ripe for optimum colour, flavour and sweetness. This is important because none of the fruit 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. The best taste and colours are achieved by timing the ripeness of your fruit correctly. Unripe fruit can spoil an otherwise tasty ice lolly.

1 ripe mango
2 pineapple rings from a tin (more if you prefer)

Makes about 4 ice lollies (60 ml / 2 fl oz moulds)


1. Wash, peel and de-stone the mango.
2. Chop the two pineapple rings into smaller

3. Blend the pineapple and mango together.
4. Fill the ice lolly moulds with the puree and

Blend the mango, pineapple and washed and hulled strawberries. Add more strawberries for a darker red. Pour into the ice lolly mould and freeze.

Tandem fruit ice lollies (above middle)

Chop the fruit (mango, pineapple and strawberry) into small pieces and mash them up with a fork. Put the mashed up fruit into the ice lolly moulds and freeze.

Banana Dapple ice lollies (above - middle ice lolly)

For a different flavour use a very ripe banana instead of a mango. The Dapple ice lolly looks attractive when frozen and it's an easy way to make the fruit lollies look more appealing to the kids.

Releasing the ice lolly

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. Enjoy!

Make the puree for the tropical flavour fruit ice lollies and fill half the ice lolly mould with the fruit puree. Add strawberries to the remaining puree and blend. Fill the remainder of the ice lolly mould with the red fruit puree and freeze. These are just a few of the many different ice lollies that can be made simply by using mango, pineapple and strawberries. More tips can be found in the fruit ice lolly recipe booklet.
