With the heat right now making homemade ice lollies is just what we all need! These strawberry ice lollies are quick and easy to make, from just two ingredients you can easily get your hands on.
It only takes a few minutes preparation, and then a few hours in the freezer, so you and your family can even be enjoying your own homemade lollies later the same day like we did with these!
- strawberries – the fresher the better
- lemonade – or your preferred liquid, if making for grown ups you might prefer to use Pimms and lemonade or Prosecco!
Step by step
Making ice lollies is so simple. I always make fruit ice lollies using pureed fresh fruit. Simply puree your strawberries in your blender, then add a little lemonade for a little extra sweetness.
I used diet lemonade here so these are also zero point ice lollies on Weightwatchers, as well as being suitable for the whole family. They are not overly loaded in sugar, other than the naturally occurring sugar in the strawberries.
The next step is simply pouring the strawberry lemonade mixture into your moulds.
The lolly moulds I used are shown at the bottom of the post (affiliate Amazon link). Add your lolly sticks and then transfer to the freezer. Next just wait four to six hours at least until frozen solid, then you can dig right in and cool down.
If you want to try different fruit lollies, papaya and apple or kiwi are also delicious and again so easy to make. If you have fruit that is going a bit soft, just whizz it in the blender and freeze and you can still enjoy it at its best later on.
How to store
Once frozen and removed from the moulds I store my ice lollies in a freezer bag, separated with small squares of baking paper to stop them sticking. Admittedly they don’t last long once made, as everyone eats them up, but the thought is there!
