Three Berry Ice Lolly
If you are a fan of berry flavours this ice lolly recipe is perfect as it packs three types of berries: strawberry, raspberries and blueberries! And it is super simple to make taking around 5 minutes to whip up (and a few hours to freeze).
Ingredients (makes 4):
120 grams blueberries
120 grams raspberries
120ml coconut milk
Wash your berries thoroughly and then pop them into your blender along with the coconut milk and honey. Blend until you get a smooth consistency. Don’t worry if you can see seeds, as after blending you should pour the mixture through a sieve to remove seeds. Once you have sieved the mixture, pour this into your ice lolly moulds. Put these in your freezer and leave for a few hours or overnight until solid. Then you can serve and enjoy!
