As the weather turns warmer children love ice-lollies and steering away from high sugar, processed options is not always easy. Here are some great healthier alternatives that children love to create and adults also enjoy eating!
Kiwi Choc Pops:
Cut kiwi into slices, put on sticks and freeze, melt dark chocolate, spoon over the frozen kiwi, allow a few seconds to set and enjoy.
Banana Coconut Lollies:
Blend together: The flesh of 1 ripe avocado, 1 tbs. natural yoghurt, 1 frozen banana, squeeze of lime juice and 200 ml of coconut milk. Pour into lolly moulds and freeze for at least one hour before serving.
Strawberry Snow Pops:
Cut stalks off strawberries, put onto a stick and freeze, once frozen cover in natural Greek yoghurt and desiccated coconut. You can eat straight away or refreeze, just allow 10 minutes for them to soften if eating from frozen.
Frozen Fruit Sticks:
Push fruit such as, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, onto kebab sticks. Wrap in parchment paper and freeze for at least an hour. Eat straight from the freezer.
