Helloooo Lovelies! Everyone seems to be buzzing about Summer right now and so I thought I'd throw in an extra 'Summer Themed' post today. When I was little I used to make these little lollies all the time in the summer and so when I found these moulds at the back of the kitchen cupboard a few days ago I couldn't resist trying them out again! The ice lollies I made were super easy, all you do is fill the mould and pop in the freezer - but they're such a yummy thing to eat on a hot day and I love them! I'm not sure whether this even counts as a recipe really (since it's so simple!) but here are a few of the different types of ice lollies I made!
You will Need:
Fruit Float Lolly:
Chop up your berries, kiwi and oranges into small pieces or segments. Then just fill your mould half way with water and drop the right fruit in! Once frozen, the berries dye the water a lovely pink colour which I love, and the fruit looks liek it's floating inside! Try to use lighter fruit if you don't want it to sink too far to the bottom of your lolly too.
For this one, all I used was 1 Kiwi plus a quarter cup of orange juice so it wasn't too thick, and after blending it all up I simply poured it into the mould. It's such a basic one but probably my favourite out of all of them because it's so refreshing and sweet from the kiwi!
Layered Berry Lolly :
This one took a little more time than the others, but this was only to do with the layering really! For the first layer, I simply blended some frozen berries to make the bottom (my faves to use are blackberries!) then added Greek yogurt, and more berry mix. I used lighter coloured berries near the tip of the lolly and so it almost has an ombre' effect now!
Just put all of these in the freezer for roughly 2 hours and your lollies should pop straight out after!
QOTD: SUMMER VS WINTER?
Usually I'd say Winter straight away, but we've had such rubbish weather here in England lately I can't wait for a bit of sun!
