Healthy, 3 Ingredient Ice Lollies In 15 Minutes

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com31 Comments

This is going to be the shortest recipe ever. So easy, almost a no-brainer really, I could just list the 3 ingredients and anyone can figure it out what to do with them.


As you might know, Bobcat is a really fussy eater, he still doesn’t eat any fresh fruits and vegetables at all. (He’s 3 years old. When will this change?) Anyway, the only way to make him eat some is trying to smuggle them into something he likes. Like ice cream. All kids like ice lollies. These easy-peasy healthy ice pops are so delicious that they won’t even notice a little bit of kale hiding in there, with all its fabulous natural vitamin C.


We normally have everything at home to make these, as I often use Waitrose frozen smoothie mixes for his snacks. (I’m a master of veggie -smuggling you see) We have two favourites: kale-mango-kiwi and berries-beetroot-carrot. But it can be any mix of favourite fruits and veggies really.

So grab about

4 handfuls of frozen fruits and veggies

4 tablespoons of greek yogurt and

2 tablespoons of honey.

I used half and half of my favourite smoothie mixes to create 6 different coloured lollies.

All you need to do is just blend the fruits with the honey using your mixer (you can let the frozen fruits sit a little bit before that, so they won’t be too icy) and fold the yogurt in. Add a splash of water, around 50-60 ml in the end and pour your mixture into the moulds. Put it in the freezer for 3 hours.

Top Tips:

  • you need the water to make your mixture freeze better because the yogurt is too creamy. Water makes the proper ice lolly.
  • hold the mould under hot running water for 15-20 seconds to make it easier to get the ice pops out of the mould.
  • use quality moulds with a strong, firm handle.
  • you can use a different sweetener or none at all!
  • before serving them, you can dip them into melted chocolate- real treat!

      Yes, absolutely, that’s why I thought the kids would like a cold treat #foodiefriday

  1. Fabulous! It’s great to use up the riper fruit – I always order too much this time of year x #FOODIEFRIDAY

  2. I love that you have veg in these! I would never have thought to do that. Brilliant idea to give the kids a treat in hot weather, AND get some veg into them at the same time.

  3. These look delicious! I’ve never thought of putting honey in ice lollies before and what a great way to smuggle in some extra fruit and veg!

      Honey is a little bit better than sugar, and let’s face it, otherwise it might not go down that well. ?

  4. These lollies are so colourful and healthy, kids won’t say NO for it πŸ™‚

  5. What gorgeous ice lollies, and I love that they’re so quick and easy to make too! I’ll have to make a batch for the kids. πŸ™‚

  6. An easy way to make healthy lollies! Great pictures and good tips. We make ice lollies at home but never thought of using honey! Have always been using sugar!!! Not anymore!

  7. oh wow I need to make these! They look so healthy and refreshing!! Perfect for my little one!

  9. Yum! I have a smoothie every morning, such a great idea to turn it into lollies for the kids xx #blogcrush

  10. Oh wow this sounds really great and easy to make! I am the worst person in the kitchen so I can definitely get on board with this : ) ? thanks so much for sharing with #globalblogging!

  11. My youngest is a fussy eater and I need to master the art of smuggling in fruit and veg! These look yummy and I’m sure both my girls would not only love to make them, but eat them too. I’m also going to check out Waitrose smoothie mixes x

  12. Yum! These look amazing! I’ve bookmarked this page for future reference-we’re definitely going to make some!

  13. Our daughter is good with her fruit and veg but these are great ideas for variations. Plus, they are much healthier than the standard fare kids expect from a freezer. I will have to give them a go!

  14. That’s a really good idea on how to sneak in vitamins into children’s sweets. Everyone loves lollies and putting some kale in them, without changing the taste, is brilliant!

  15. These sound great! I can’t believe they’ve even got kale in them! I might have to give it a try as my son isn’t a big fan of fruit either, though thankfully he’ll happily eat his veg.
