Home Made Ice Lollies

E absolutely loves ice lollies and ice cream and even more so whilst we have been having this glorious hot weather, so when Sykes Cottages contacted me inviting us to make some home-made ice lollies with E for a competition. Needless to say I jumped at the chance.

They kindly sent us some ice lolly moulds and an ice lolly recipe book for inspiration.

After much thought we decided to make Strawberry and Watermelon ice lollies – two of E’s favourite fruits.

Step Seven – Enjoy!

These ice lollies are so simple to make and E really enjoyed herself. A really healthy alternative to some of the shop bought lollies you can buy.

The hardest part of making the lollies for E, was having to wait for them to freeze. But as she can see she really enjoyed them once they were ready.
