My kids always want a quick snack when they get home from school, and as the weather is getting hotter, I thought what better treat than homemade ice lollies made from fresh fruit and yoghurt?  These lollies have no added sugar (only the natural sugar from the fruit and the natural yoghurt), and contain beneficial vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. You can experiment with different fruits – I added cherries and banana, as the banana needed eating, and the cherries were on offer at the market. They are super quick and easy to make – I made mine after lunch and they were frozen by 4pm in time to feed my monkeys.

To make them, lightly blended the following in a plastic jug, and pour into 4 lolly moulds:

– 1 banana

– 10 fresh cherries (stones removed but no need to remove the skin)

– 150g natural low-fat yoghurt (about 45p for 500g tub of supermarket own brand)


I bought my lolly moulds from the 99p Stores last week. The bases have smiley faces and a little straw to mop up all the melted ice lolly juice that usually drips onto their summer dresses.
