We’ve had some hot days recently and there is nothing better on a hot day than sitting outside enjoying a homemade ice lollipop. I’ve had my lollipop mould for a few months but until now the most adventurous thing I’ve put in it has been orange juice.
It seemed however that the Little Spices were getting a bit bored of just one flavour and in fact Little Miss Spice was beginning to prefer the bought ice pops to my simple homemade ice lollies. Something had to be done if I was going to be able to compete. It was time for me to become a bit more adventurous too.
Now, with these peach and banana ice lollies adventurous does not have to mean complex. They only contain 3 ingredients but are totally delicious. You can even make them more simple by not doing the two layers. I’ve since just made banana lollies.
If you want the layers to be really even you can add one flavour, freeze them and then add the next flavour. However I found that because they are made with pureed fruit, the banana and yoghurt layer just sat on top of the peach layer anyway. Another advantage to making lollies with pureed fruit rather than juice is that they didn’t seem to drip as much as the children were eating them.
They were definitely a success and now I’ve started making homemade ice lollies with pureed fruit I’ll certainly be making more of them over the rest of the summer.
Ingredients – makes 6
1 ripe banana
2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
How to Make Peach and Banana Ice Lollipops
- Take the stones out of the peaches and puree them. I used a stick blender.
Spoon the puree into the lollipop moulds, filling them about half-way.
Mash the banana with a fork and then stir in the yoghurt. Spoon this on top of the peach.
Put in the freezer until completely frozen.
To take the lollipops out of the mould, run the hot tap over the plastic mould for a short time.
