Strawberry ice lollies

Difficulty: Easy

Time: 15 minutes + 4 hours freezing time

Serves: 8

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

400g strawberries
200ml milk
405g light condensed milk.

* You can mix this up by using different fruits – any berries work well, or add banana. You can also use natural yoghurt instead of milk, or to limit the sugar you put in, don’t use all the condensed milk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With only three ingredients these strawberry ice lollies are healthier and cheaper than shop bought lollies and probably one of the easiest things you can make with your kids.

Method

Hull your strawberries
Get your toddler to help you hull the strawberries. This was a good way for Hannah to practice using a (blunt) knife. As the fruit gets blitzed in a blender it doesn’t matter if they aren’t cut perfectly.

 


Blitz the fruit

Mix the fruit in a blender until its smooth.


Add the milk and condensed milk

Measure out the milk then pour into the pureed strawberries. Add the condensed milk and mix.

 


Make the strawberry ice lollies

I put the mixture back into the mixing jug to make it easier to pour into the moulds. Your toddler should then be able to make the lollies for you.


Pop them in the freezer – they’ll take at least four hours to set, and will keep for 2 months.
