Strawberry Ice Lolly




Summer is finally here. This is a very simple treat we make on regular basis to help kill the heat. It's simple, healthy and cheap. Kids love it. It taste great and it doesn't make a mess like traditional popsicles who get runny very quickly. My little girl insisted that we share this recipe on Instructables so here it is. She helped making the ice lollies and did all the set up for the photos. Enjoy!

    You can also try with bananas. Just take half of it so it fit on the stick. Taste is nice but it doesn't beat the strawberry. If your son doesn't like it, here is how I got my girls to like fruits: take a thin wooden stick: kebbab stick, toothpick, whatever you can get. The longer the better. Than stick all kind of fruits on it: grapes, strawberry, apple slices, etc. It looks nice and colorful, and they love picking the fruits out of it. They called it their fruit BBQ.

    Sorry my reply keeps being deleted. I try a third time. Nutella won't work because it contains palm oil which doesn't freeze. Just use normal cooking chocolate. Melt it and dip the top of the lollies in it because you place them in the freezer.

    Nothing stop you doing the same non-frozen version in winter! See my reply to Thatdan above. I describe how I do some fruit sticks. Not as yummy, but my little one love it and eat their daily fruits.

    Yes, very simple and since children can make it them self they cannot wait to eat it. That's more healthy than the industrial version. Make sure you have some spare one because it's very popular with adults as well.
