Ice Lolly Recipes

We have been waiting for Summer and now is here. This means that it is time to do some lollies for the kids and why not for the parents as well. For me, ice lolly has to be healthy but with nice flavours and colours! I don’t have kid but my boyfriend was happy to be my kid  when I tried to create some recipes. It is a great idea to prepare the lollies with the kids. Of course, don’t forget to tell them that they need to wait 1 day before eating them!

For all the recipes below, you only need to mix all the ingredients in a blender.

Vanilla Strawberry Lolly

Serves 4

  • 5 table spoons if vanilla yogurt
  • 160 g strawberries
  • 2 tea spoons icing sugar
  • 1 ml vanilla extract

In my first try, I didn’t put vanilla extract and we couldn’t taste vanilla. I think adding 1 ml of vanilla extract can resolve this matter.

Banana Kiwi Lolly

Seves 4

  • 1 big banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 5 table spoons lemonade

This one is my favourite one because I could taste both flavours. We can replace lemonade by yogurt to have a smoother lolly.

Rum Pineapple Lolly

Now that we have done the lolly for the kids, let’s create one for Mum and Dad!

  • 3 tablespoons crushed pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons lemonade
  • 5 ml rum

In my opinion we don’t taste rum enough. Don’t believe that I am an alcoholic but rum is the interest of this recipe. I didn’t want to put too much rum when I did the first try as alcohol doesn’t freeze!

Please note that this recipes are tests that I did in my laboratory kitchen. They probably need some adjustments to adapt them to your taste. However, they can give you ideas to create your own lollies. Don’t hesitate to post comments on these recipes.

Coconut and Pineapple Bread

I have noticed that I have a can of crushed pineapple in my cupaboard. I always buy pineapple slices so I didn’t know what to do with this can. I decided to mix it with some coconut to make this tropical recipe!

 

 

 

For 10 persons

  • 250g flour
  • 80g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 200g crushed pineapple
  • 75g dessicated coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

In a bowl, combine the flour and the baking powder. Make a well in the centre and add the butter. Work with the fingers until you have a grainy mixture.

Add to this mixture sugar, coconut, crushed pineapple, milk ad egg. Stir with a wooden spoon until you get a smooth mixture.

Put the batter in a pan and bake for 1h15.

You can serve this sunny recipe with vanilla ice cream!
