Rainbow Fruit Ice Lollies

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED!!! With the weather starting to heat up for the summer, you can never go too wrong with an ice lolly. I recently made a batch with K, on one of our ‘project time’ afternoon activities.

Since watching ‘The Rainbow’ episode of Pepper Pig (Season 3 Episode 2 for those of you having produced avid Pepper Pig fans), K is obsessed with Rainbows so it was a piece of cake to get her involved in this activity.

Rainbow Fruit Ice Lollies

In terms of the difficulty scale, as long you own a food processor or blender of some sorts, fruit ice lollies are one of the easiest things to make and great fun for your little one. You also don’t have to be worried about dealing with a sugar-high, duracell-charged little terrior as with the natural sweetness of the fresh fruits, there is no need for sugar!

You can use any fruits or any combination of fruits, and here are just a few ideas to get you going…

  1. Blueberry and Apple
    • Peel, dressed and steam one apple with a box of blueberries. Blend mixture and lolly-fy. As blueberries can sometimes be a little sour, the apple adds a bit of natural sweetness.
  2. Strawberry and Raspberry
    • Just a handful of each fruit makes a great combination for the red colour. No need to pre-cook. Simply destalk, wash thoroughly, blend to a liquid and lolly-fy.
  3. Kiwi and Lime
    • Blend about 3-4 ripe kiwis with the juice of 1/2 a lime and lolly-fy.
  4. Classic Orange
    • Super simple. Just lolly-fy some freshly squeezed orange juice and drink up the rest.
  5. Pina Colada 
    • Blend together about half a pineapple mixed with 1-2 tablespoons of coconut cream and lolly-fy for a frozen version of this classic mocktail.

Leave the mixtures overnight to freeze properly. As for the ice lolly makers, I am sure you can get them anywhere and everywhere. Mine are a set of 6 from Ikea.
