Fruit ice lollies are a healthy alternative to snacks and treats with a high sugar content. They have no added sugar, preservatives, additives or concentrates. The ice lollies are made with 100% fruit and no other ingredients are added. Every colour and flavour has a minimum of two fruits blended together.

A new Change4Life campaign was launched on the 5th January 2015 by Public Health England which encourages parents to cut down the amount of sugar their children consume by making one or more simple sugar swaps at different times during the day. The new Change4Life campaign recommends simple sugar swaps by finding a cereal which contains less sugar at breakfast, a less sugary snack, pudding and drink. These small changes would cut down the amount of sugar a child consumes each day. Home-made fruit ice lollies would be a nutritious healthy sugar swap and can be used as a snack, healthy treat or dessert. The ice lollies can also be counted as an extra portion of fruit, as in the 5 a Day campaign, another Government initiative. The 5 a Day campaign, encourages increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables we eat to at least 5 portions a day. Eating more fruit and vegetables has shown to be beneficial to our health and general wellbeing.

By making your own home-made fruit ice lollies you have the advantage of knowing exactly what has gone in them, create your own flavours, personalize them by naming them and getting the children involved. Our children loved putting the fruit puree in the ice lolly moulds. They made the above fruit lollies, 3rd from left aged 7, and  were very proud of the results.  Recipes for home-made fruit ice lollies can be found on this website with tips that include;

* Making different coloured and flavoured ice lollies in just one batch 
* Making fruit ice lollies more appealing, especially to children

The 'Dapple' ice lolly is very simple and quick to make and looks effective when frozen. Ice lolly moulds usually start appearing in large supermarkets when the weather starts to get a little warmer.

Late spring and summer is the best time to make the ice lollies as there is so much fruit to choose from. Lovely coloured ice lollies can be created using fruit and wonderful flavours can be blended together to make the purees. 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. Fruit ice lollies are a refreshing treat in the summer but tasty in the winter too.

Reluctant fruit eaters may be tempted to taste a fruit ice lolly if it is offered to them. Our son's fruit taste was very limited. He didn't like mango but by mixing it with other fruits he was quite happy eating it in a fruit lolly. This worked with other fruits he wasn't keen on too. It was a simple and quick way to increase and vary his fruit intake.

I have taken frozen fruit puree samples into a local school, toddler groups and nurseries to see if there was an interest in them. The reaction was very positive. The children were more than happy to try the fruit purees and they soon disappeared. The parents reactions to the children's enjoyment of the purees was positive too. Many parents had tried to make their own ice lollies with fruit but had given up as their children didn't like them. Not all fruits go well together. I discovered that too but by persevering you soon develop a good knowledge of which fruits do go well together.

I still get enormous pleasure from making the fruit lollies even though I've been making them for many years now. Fruit ice lollies are not just for children, teenagers and adults enjoy them too. By creating this website I hope others will be tempted to make some ice lollies too and experience the satisfaction of making nutritious treats. I have put all my fruit ice lolly ideas and fruit combinations together into a recipe booklet. Genuine reactions to what others say about the fruit ice lollies and the recipe booklet  have been put onto this website for others to see.


 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)

Never use frozen fruit for these recipes!

Banana & Pineapple ice lolly

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 lollies or your freezer.


When making ice lollies make sure the fruit you use is ripe so that you get maximum 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.

Orange and Red ice lollies

Hide & Seek and Dapple ice lollies

Hide & Seek and Dapple ice lollies


Orange Ice lollies (left)

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.  Peel and de-stone the mango.
2. Chop the two pineapple rings into smaller pieces.
3. Blend the pineapple and mango together.
4. Fill the ice lolly moulds with the puree and freeze.

Red Ice lollies (right)

Blend the mango and pineapple, as above but add some washed and hulled strawberries to get a different flavour and colour.  Add more strawberries for a darker red. Put into the ice lolly mould and freeze.

To create both of the above fruit ice lollies in one batch you make the orange fruit puree first but only use half the puree to put into the ice lolly mould. Blend the strawberries with the remaining orange fruit puree and use it to make the red ice lollies. Fill the ice lolly moulds with the remaining red puree and freeze.

Hide and seek ice lollies (left)

Use the same fruit as in the previous recipe (mango, pineapple and strawberries). Reserve some small chopped up pieces of fruit. Blend the fruit into a puree. Mix the small pieces  of  fruit with the puree and freeze.

Dapple ice lollies (right)

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.

For a different flavour and colour use a very ripe banana instead of a mango.


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!

The ice lollies made with 100% fruit are very popular with our own children as well as with their friends.  I've been making different ice lollies and purees for over 12 years now and our children still enjoy them as so many different flavours, colours and patterns can be made.

My interest in making ice lollies with fruit started after experiencing Hyperemesis Gravidarum during pregnancy. Unable to eat healthily when I was expecting inspired me to provide our children with a healthy diet once they were born.
I am no nutrition or  cookery expert, BUT I am an enthusiastic Mum and qualified nursery nurse with many years experience of working with children in school, nurseries and in private homes as a nanny. I created the recipe booklet so that others could share these simple but effective ideas for making home made fruit ice lollies.
