UK’s Healthiest Ice Lollies
Ice lollies are as much a part of summer as the sun, beaches, and holidays, but when you’re counting calories, it can be hard to enjoy summer the way you used to. With this list of healthiest ice lollies, you can easily choose one of these low-calorie and low-sugar options so that you don’t have to give up your summer fun or break your diet!
One of the most deceiving ice lollies when it comes to health is the Solero Exotic ice lolly with 94 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and a whopping 17 grams of sugar. Almost just as bad as those are the Fab ice lollies with 90 calories, 3.2 grams of fat, and 15 grams of sugar. Mini Calippo ice lollies are slightly better on the calorie count with 70 or 75 calories, but contain a surprising 18 grams of sugar.
The healthiest ice lollies, which are all available here in the UK, are:
Del Monte Orange Ice Lollies
These have just 65 calories, trace amounts of fat and sugar, and 14.5 grams of sugar. Made of 100% fruit juice, they also contain a good amount of vitamin C and all of the sugar is natural sugar from the orange juice.
Rowntrees Fruit Pastilles Ice Lollies
These colourful little lollies have 61 calories and 14.6 grams of sugar. Plus, they are fat and salt free. They are also made up of 25% real fruit juice which makes them a pretty safe choice when it comes to healthy ice lollies.
R Whites Premium Lemonade Ice Lollies
These have 60 calories, trace amounts of fat and salt, and 14 grams of sugar. Although they are slightly better in calorie and sugar count than some of the others on this list, they don’t contain as much fruit juice which may be a drawback.
Mini Twister Ice Lollies
These have just 45 calories, 1 gram of fat, 0.3 grams of sugar, and 7 grams of sugar. While they beat out several on the list in terms of calorie and sugar counts, they also have a higher fat and salt content.
Ribena Ice Lollies
Next on the list are these, which contain just 25 calories, trace amounts of fat and salt, and 6 grams of sugar, all in a 35 millilitre lolly. These are easily one of the healthiest lollies out there that you can enjoy without feeling bad about it.
Mr. Freeze Freeze Pops
Topping the list are these fun childhood favourites that have just 14 calories, trace amounts of fat and salt, and only 3 grams of sugar. Although these are easily the best in terms of their counts, but because they’re so small, it’s also tempting to eat a few, so be careful that you don’t over-do it with them.
Whether buying for yourself, your kids, or everyone, choosing ice lollies that are healthier is a great choice to make for you and everyone around you. By shopping for the healthiest ice lollies that made this list, you can eat them without feeling like you’re cheating on your diet.
