“Homemade lollies, I think as a parent, are one of the coolest things ever. Yes, we can say it’s all for the kids, but the adults love it too! And it’s a great way to get more of the good stuff into your kids.”
Jamie’s 101 on cool ice lollies
Start with a fruit smoothie. Blitz up frozen fruit, milk or yoghurt and a handful of porridge oats, maybe a few nuts or seeds, and a drizzle of honey, then divide between lolly moulds
Embellish as you wish – I like to drop in fresh berries, or squeeze in fleshy passion fruit seeds
Add your sticks and freeze for at least 2 hours, or until set
For a bit of fun, half fill your moulds with one coloured smoothie, freeze, then top up with a different colour and flavour. If you’ve got time on your hands, you can do as many colourful layers as you like
Finally, for the adults, you can be a bit more adventurous with your combos. Think watermelon with fresh mint and lime, or you could even add a bit of booze and vibe off frozen cocktails – just don’t get your batches mixed up!
