DIY Ice Lolly Ideas
The summer is here and we’re loving it so far! Having more daylight hours makes us feel like we have so much more time to fit everything into our days here at OYG, and we know from all of you amazing OYG Warriors over on the community page that you feel it too.
Waking earlier to fit in exercise feels so much more doable when it’s light outside and having a longer evening to prepare delicious meals also feels easier.
All these summery vibes got us thinking of our childhood days, innocently whiling away our time outside with friends, playing for hours and sucking on tasty, juicy ice lollies. But whoever said that ice lollies were just for kids? We adults demand them too! So we scoured the internet and came up with some DIY ideas for making at home and storing in the freezer. (Whether or not you share them with the kids is up to you…)
These Raspberry Tea Ice Lollies are sweetened using maple syrup but we tried them with squeezy honey and they’re just as tasty. They can also be made using any fruit tea bags you already have, so get creative, and because they’re caffeine free, we guess you could share them with the little ones if you wanted to…
Indulgently creamy, these Cereal Milk Ice Lollies can be made with the family’s favourite breakfast cereals - and eaten any time of day. They are fairly rich in fats though (hello double cream!) so be mindful if you’re keen on a low fat diet.
We can’t resist these low-cal Avocado and Strawberry Ices, from our very own recipe pages. They’re ideal for using up strawberries that have gone a little mushy and avocados that might be past their prime.
Definitely not for the kids, these Gin & Tonic Ice Lollies are for the grown ups only. Use your favourite gin and whichever tonic you prefer, and get fancy by adding some berries or other chopped fruit. They make a fantastic dessert too, if you’re hosting and can’t think of an idea for the final course.
This recipe for Rainbow Ice Lollies is a little more involved, but the results will be more than worth it and they’re far healthier than a sugar laden shop bought version.
Using yoghurt (including a plant based version) to make ice lollies gives them an interesting twist and they certainly look the part, as these ideas from Abel & Cole demonstrate.
Nothing says “super refreshing on a super hot day” more than chilled freshly squeezed orange juice with an extra citrus twist. These Two Ingredient Orange Lollies are just that - and if you can't get fruit into your kids, these lollies could be your secret weapon!
