I’ve mentioned before the problems we have in buying ice lollies. Some own brand supermarket options are OK for us, but on the whole we can rarely buy ice lollies from ice cream vans or shops, due to them possibly containing nut or milk traces. This can be particularly painful on sticky hot days, especially when we’re out with friends and other children are tucking into refreshing ice creams, and my girls have to sit and watch empty handed 🙁
These stunning homemade lollies don’t solve that problem, but they make a fab treat or summer pudding, and a great way for children to eat masses of fruit without realising it! The texture is soft and more like a set sorbet than an icy lolly, making these perfect for all family members.
Mixed Berry and Elderflower Ice Lollies (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan)
- 200g strawberries
- 100g raspberries
- 1-3 tbsps icing sugar, to taste depending on the sharpness of the berries
- 1 cup apple and elderflower pressed juice, or elderflower cordial (diluted)
– Whizz or mash the berries and pass through a sieve
– Taste and add sugar as desired
– Stir in the juice
– Pour into ice lolly moulds and freeze
Yum – interesting shapes!
With you on the ice lolly front. Nightmare and juice lollies best way forward. Have even resorted to Birds custard made with oat milk as iced treat…bit grainy but the near 2 year old seems to like it! Love the idea of elderflower as an addition 🙂
It’s awful on a hot day out! A drink doesn’t live up to the prospect of an ice lolly/ice cream when that’s what everyone else is having…
Cute shapes and lovely flavor!
Berries give such an intense deep flavour 🙂
Oooh Lucy! I love these so much! They looked stunning & that’s why I made them yesterday! I loved eating them too! xxx
They’re seriously tasty aren’t they! X
