Fruit Ice Lollies
Fruit Ice Lollies are brilliant for children as they are just pure fruit sweetened with a little sugar, so they contain no artificial colours or preservatives. They're also a great way to use up fresh fruit or berries. Tinned fruit also works well. This recipe is for strawberry ice lollies but other fruits will work such as raspberries, blueberries or peaches.
All you need is a lolly mould which you can purchase cheaply from any supermarket. You also need something to blend your fruit with like a hand blender or food processor.
This recipe is dedicated to Joshua's gorgeous little buddy Scarlett, seen munching a strawberry fruit ice lolly below.
