We were recently invited to get involved with Great British Chefs and try out some of their amazing recipes.  Please, please have a look – I love trying new recipes and there are so many good ones here – from bacon roly polies and banana pops to chicken and apple hedgehog rolls and fish fingers in lemonade batter.  Loads of quirky and fun recipes.

Seeing as the weather is finally starting to improve, as well as the fact that Bear (aged 4) is obsessed with ice lollies, we opted to try the mixed berry freezies – full of goodness and easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 300g of raspberries
  • 150g of strawberries
  • 2 tbsp of icing sugar
  • 200ml of water

Method

1.
Place the berries in a blender with the icing sugar and pulse. Add the water and blend until smooth
2.
Sieve the mixture into a jug, discarding the pips, then pour into sections of a lolly mould tray or into individual lolly moulds. Add the sticks or lids and freeze overnight until firm
3.
Run the mould or moulds under hot water to loosen the lollies, then remove from the moulds. Serve immediately.

We had great fun blending up the fruit (and eating a few along the way). The next day – for breakfast, Bear tried his freezy and loved it.  Yes they have some added sugar, but I expect far less than shop bought lollies, and you could make eight or ten for the price of a few lollies at the shop.
Next time we may try them without the sugar, I hope he’d still love them as much – although he did enjoy seeing the cloud of icing sugar as we blended it into the fruit puree!
I might try blackberries as well next time.  I was good to explain to Bear how fruit has pips when we sieved them out to leave the pure fruit.
You can use a variety of different lolly moulds – Bear couldn’t quite believe that they came out of the freezer ‘just like a real lolly’!
Enjoy, we loved them.

 

We have been offered the cost of the ingredients for this post.  I stick to the bloggers with integrity code to post honest and open reviews.

  1. We’re so happy that Bear loved the berry ice poles and that you were part of the Cooking with Kids campaign.

    • And my husband is now addicted to them as well! We’ve also done a tray of alphabet ice cubes with some of the fruit mix!
