Healthy, 3 Ingredient Ice Lollies In 15 Minutes

by

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.

ice lollies
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.

ice lollies
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 or vegan yogurt and

2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar

I used half and half of my favourite smoothie mixes to create 6 different coloured healthy ice 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!

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.

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. ?

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

Love the idea of sneaky a little veg in there. We normally just do fruit ones. #stayclassymama

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!

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!

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.
