An easy way for little ones to get their five-a-day, this super simple ice lolly recipe is bound to impress.

Ingredients

Black and green grapes

Strawberries

Blueberries

Tinned peach slices

Sugar-free lemonade

Method

Step 1

Cut the fruits into small pieces.

Step 2

Place and order the fruits in the ice lolly moulds to your taste - remember to fill up the fruits close together so they don’t move.

Step 3

Pour the lemonade into the moulds and fill them. Gentle tap the moulds to get rid of any air bubbles or trapped air.

Step 4

Put a lolly stick into each mould and pop inside the freezer for about 2 hours before serving.


Fizzy Chocolate Cubes

Ingredients

For the ice cream:

500ml carton chilled, ready-made vanilla custard

200g bar dark chocolate, melted

1 ripe banana, mashed


For the coating:

2 x 5g packets popping candy

300g (10oz) dark chocolate, melted


You’ll also need:

Ice cube trays (1-2)

Ice lolly sticks (20-24)

Method

Step 1

To make the ice cream, warm the custard and stir in the melted chocolate and banana.

Step 2

Then, spoon the mixture into the ice cube trays. When the mixture is cold, pop the trays in the freezer and leave to set until nearly solid, then insert a lolly stick into each cube and leave to set fully.

Step 3

When set, stir the popping candy into the melted chocolate for the coating.

Step 4

Remove the ice cube trays from the freezer and take out the frozen cubes. Dip each cube into the melted chocolate and drain off the excess. Put them on a baking parchment sheet until set (it will happen quite quickly). Serve immediately.


Strawberry Ice Cream

Perfect for those with a sweet strawberry tooth, this ice cream is full of deliciousness. Make sure there’s an adult on hand to help with some of the steps.

Ingredients

250g strawberries

Juice of a lemon

250g caster sugar

200ml water

4 large egg whites

A pinch of cream of tartar (bextartar)

300ml cream, whipped (amounts to about 500ml of whipped cream)

Method

Step 1

Puree the strawberries and lemon juice in a food processor (with the help of a grown-up). Alternatively, you can mash them with a fork and make sure there are no lumpy rough edges.

Step 2

Remove the seeds by pushing the puree through a sieve.

Step 3

Put the sugar and water in a saucepan and heat slowly, making sure to dissolve the sugar.

Step 4

Once the sugar has dissolved, get an adult to boil the mixture on a high heat for 9 minutes until thickened (and the liquid is like a sticky piece of thread).

Step 5

Get a grown-up to use an electric whisk and whisk the egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff.

Step 6

Whilst whisking, get a grown-up to pour in the hot syrup and whisk until the mixture is cool, glossy and firm (about 4-5 minutes).

Step 7

Fold in the strawberry puree and whipped cream.

Step 8.

Pop in the freezer to freeze overnight.
