Homemade ice lollies, you can’t get any better!
Striped Strawberry and Cream Lollies
For this cute and fun lolly, you’ll need to prepare the strawberry and cream stripes separately.
For the strawberry stripe, you will need to blend about 500g of strawberries with 250mls of water and a small amount of honey. That’s about 10 strawberries that you’ll be using.
For the cream stripe, you will need to blend together 1 can of coconut milk with 1/5 of a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Begin by pouring the strawberry stripe to 1/3 of the height of the mould. Put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes so that it’s semi-solid, then add the cream stripe up to 2/3 of the height of the mould. That should go in the freezer for about 30 minutes, and then you can add the strawberry mixture up to the top. Freeze for about 6 hours.
Creamy Orange Lollies
These sweet and creamy orange lollies are sure to please anyone. To make them, blend together 250mls of coconut milk, 60mls of coconut water, ½ an avocado, 2 peeled mandarin oranges, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, a pinch of grated orange rind, and 1/3 of a teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Freeze for about 4 hours then enjoy!
Chocolate Fudge Lollies
To make these smooth chocolate fudge lollies that are the perfect desert for any summer meal, blend together 250g of avocado flesh, 500mls of unsweetened coconut milk, 150g of coconut sugar, and 90g of raw cacao powder. Once blended, freeze them for 8 hours before eating.
