Sluttishly Simple: Ice Lollies

Hurray for sunshine! I've broken out my flip flops for the first time this year (and promptly dropped a heavy wooden drawer on my big toe - OUCH!) which means that Summer is finally on its way. Having been living on rich casseroles and hearty roasts for the last few months I'm feeling the need for some fruity vitamins and refreshing flavours.

These couldn't be easier to make. I picked up a set of 6 lolly moulds from the nearest pound shop and headed off to get some nice juices. Of course you can make your own juice if you have a juicer or a blender but when it's so lovely and sunny out I would much rather be out enjoying it than inside doing washing up! I bought a bottle of banana juice and one kiwi and banana but you can use whatever juice you fancy. I happened to have some frozen fruit in the freezer too so in they went but you could use fresh.

You'll need:
  • fruit juice
  • fruit
Make it!

Put your fruit into the lolly mould, top up with your fruit juice, put the lid on then freeze.


Spirits don't freeze but you can make Booze Pops using wine and cider. I've made sangria versions of these using red wine, orange juice and fruit and they were surprisingly good! I tend to buy my fruit juices from the Eastern European supermarkets as they have really great ranges and combinations. Pineapple and coconut is also really good and cucumber blended with elderflower cordial and water is really refreshing. Watermelon and mint works particularly well, just pop your watermelon (without seeds) into a blender with a few mint leaves, blend and pour into your moulds.  


  1. They look yummy :)

  2. They look so delicious and healthy! Off to get some lolly moulds after work.

  3. Spiced cider Booze Pops are definitely worth trying!

  4. Oooh, some great ideas here - thank you! I wouldn't have thought of cucumber and elderflower, but it sounds wonderful - as do the frozen fruit lollies. Yummm!

  5. Would they still freeze if you soaked the fruit in booze for a bit?

    1. As long as you surrounded your fruit in something that does freeze, so sultanas soaked in rum would be good as they don't leak booze then freeze them in banana juice for a boozy tropical pop :)
