Well, it's summer again and in the UK that normally means more rain, however, recently we've had a 'hot spell'- I saw the frozen treats contest was still open and thought that it really was time I made some ice lollies in this heat anyway, so here it is, super simple nutella ice lollies!!
Step 1: Step 1: Gather Ingredients & Equipment
This recipe really requires next to nothing to make; in fact, you could even get away with not using cream, but it does make the finished result, well, creamier. All you will need is:
.Milk- any kind of milk will work but I used skimmed. (it should also work with soy and almond milk etc... )
.Nutella- I used Lidl's own chcocolate spread, but nutella would definately work as well and it would make your ice lollies hazel nut-ty
.Cream- Again, any kind of cream should work, but if you don't have any you can get away with replacing it with milk, but I think it's worth going and buying some, as it makes the end result creamier.
.An ice lolly mould- go get one, they're only cheap, or a zoku would probably work great for this as well.
.A 1 cup measurement- again, these only cost about 2 GBP.
.A rubber spatula; it's helpful but not nescessary
.A banana- if you want to make choconana lollies
Step 2: Step 2: Measure and Blend!
Get your blender jug out and measure:
2 and a half cups of milk
half a cup of cream
and a cup of nutella.
If you're not using cream just use 3 cups of milk.
Once you have put everything in to your blender jug, mix it until it is combined, not forgetting to scrape any nutella off the sides of the jug so it gets blended into the mixture. Once it is blended, continue on to the next step.
OR: once the mixture is blended, add a banana and blend again so there are no large chunks of banana.
I had excess mixture, so I made a batch of chocolate lollies and blended a banana into the extra mixture to make a batch of choconana lollies as well!
Step 3: Step 3: Freeze Dem Lollies Good!
Now for the final step, pour the mixture into your mould- you may have to make multiple batches of lollies before you use up all of your mixture, but hey, that means more ice lollies. put your filled moulds in the freezer ranging anywhere from 4 hours to overnight depending on your freezer, but to make sure that they're fully frozen, your best bet is probably just to leave them in overnight. So, put them in the freezer, close the door and wait!
Step 4: Step 4: Final Steps.
When your lollies are frozen, take them out of the freezer. to release them, you may have to run the mould under WARM, not hot, water from the tap just until the lollies slide out of the mould.
Step 5: Step 5: Enjoy!
When your lollies are released from the mould, they are ready for consumption! They are really delicious, rich and creamy and are a great way to keep cool on a hot day; They're foolproof and literally take 10 minutes to prepare! I love them and so do my mum and dad!
So why not give them a try?
