Frozen! Try Adding Veggies to Ice Lollies this Summer

We are now in late spring heading into summer. Here in Dubai, it is already getting pretty hot with temperatures already reaching 36’C during the day. And on melty days like these, there is nothing better than an ice lolly!

Believe it or not, ice lollies are a great way to introduce a little bit of extra veg into a child’s diet. But they don’t really work unless there is a little sweetness about them, which usually means more fruit than veg 🙂 This is still a natural sweetness and is far more thirst quenching than a refined sugar sweetness.

Try these mango, carrot and lime ice lollies or the Greek yoghurt ice poppits! Both delicious and so easy!

Ice Lolly: blend one mango, 45g raw carrot, juice of one lime, 250ml of coconut water and 1 Tbsp of honey. Once blended pour into lolly molds and freeze.

Poppits: Mix some full-fat Greek yoghurt with some honey. Push a slice of strawberry or any fruit to the bottom of a mold. Spoon in the yoghurt and freeze.

Happy summer everyone!
