Healthy ice lolly recipes

Published: 1st June 2009 14:30

Take a look at these recipes for ice lollies - easy and  fun to make with (or without) the kids. 


So many of the ice creams and lollies from the high street are high in sugar and calories,  these are a really tasty and filling alternative -   Great for any sunny day!

The inspiration comes from some smoothie recipes to avoid that watery, bland texture we all associate with home made lollies, so you'll find these low calorie/low fat lollies will actually fill you up as well as cool you down.
