Whether you call them an ice lolly, popsicle or ice pop they're an easy treat you can make at home. They're great on a hot summer's day with the juice dribbling down your chin and both adults and kids will love them.
Time: 10 minutes plus freezing time
Age: Any Age
Inexpensive lolly mould from IKEA
Ice lolly mould
Blackcurrant cordial (squash)
Fresh orange juice
Make up some blackcurrant squash and pour about a third into your lolly mould.
Put it in the freezer and leave until it's starting to set but not too hard.
Next add some fresh orange juice for the second third. It will start to mix a little with the cordial but not too much if you have let it set. It will give your lolly a gradual red to orange look.
Again, put in the freezer until it's starting to set.
Finally fill up with vanilla milkshake and put in your lolly sticks.
Freeze until hard.
If you don't have a lolly mould, you could try doing this using plastic cups and putting in a lolly stick or teaspoon as the handle.
These would be lovely to hand out at a summer birthday party.
