STRAWBERRY ICE LOLLIES

STRAWBERRY ICE LOLLIES
Ice lolly is basically fruit juice converted to flavored ice. I realized that it’s a good way to make children have fruits. Fruits can be included in your kid’s diet by presenting it in a fun and creative way.
We have been buying ice lollies from supermarkets since ages but imagine making them at home. Fresh, pure, unadulterated and it definitely tastes better. It’s simple to make at home, you just need fresh fruits (here I have used strawberries), Ice lolly moulds and a deep freezer that’s it…so…simple. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and few hours to freeze. So plan early if you want to present this dessert to guests or to your kids.
Ingredients
Strawberries – 500g
Water -100ml
Castor Sugar – 100g
Method
De-stem and wash the strawberries and chop the strawberries into pieces. Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until it becomes one uniform mixture. Pour the mixture into the ice lolly moulds and freeze until solid.
You can avoid sugar from this recipe if the fruits are already sweet. But since strawberry is sour I added sugar to the recipe.
Makes about 10 -12 ice lollies, depending on the size of the moulds.
I would like to send my Ice loollies to Srivalli’s Thanda Mela

I would also like to send this to Indrani's Spotlight : Summer Food and Drinks Event
