Homemade ice lollies

SONY DSC

I love smoothies for the fact that I can pack them full of fresh spinach and my two boys just drink it all like it’s the biggest treat. NOW- ice lollies are even better than a smoothie!!! So why not make them the most nutritious treats you can!

I have four ice lolly recipes I’d like to share with you. They make a great refreshing snack for both kids and adults and are quick and easy to make.

I try to use organic products where I can and in their raw unheated form- they don’t carry harmful chemicals and pesticides and have a lot higher nutritional content. However they tend to be significantly more expensive, so I’d encourage you to make your own choices on these- according to what your wallet says:) . I decided to only write “organic” on the foods that I really think should be consumed organic.

Kiwi and Avocado Ice Lollies

  • 2 ripe kiwis, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • generous handful of organic spinach
  • 1 Tbs of honey (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp of Maca powder (optional)

Process in a small food processor/ chopper until smooth. If using a blender add some filtered water and blend. Fill your ice lolly moulds and freeze.

Raspberry Ice Lollies

  • 1 cup of natural goat’s yoghurt or natural organic yoghurt
  • 1 1/4 cup of fresh or frozen organic raspberries
  • 1 Tbs of honey (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp of Maca powder (optional)

Process in a small food processor/ chopper until smooth. If using a blender add some coconut milk (or other milk of your preferance) and blend. Fill your ice lolly moulds and freeze.

Tropical Ice Lollies

  • 1 handful of organic spinach leaves
  • 1 handful of organic swiss chard leaves
  • 1 Tbs raw organic coconut oil (it has a slight coconut flavour, which I like but use non raw if preferred)SONY DSC
  • 1 tsp of Maca powder
  • 1 tsp of Spirulina powder
  • 2 rings/slices of fresh ripe pineapple
  • 200ml -300ml of filtered water or coconut water
  • (I use pineapple to make ice lolly sweeter- but always taste before freezing and add honey if necessary)

Put everything into a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer into your ice lolly moulds and freeze.

The third recipe, was inspired by a number of chocolate drink recipes created by David “Avocado” Wolfe. A lot of his recipes can be found on you tube and I recommend to try them out!

Chocolate Ice Lollies

  • 1 Tbs of raw organic cacao nibs
  • 1 1/2 Tbs raw organic cacao (if using normal cocoa add 2 Tbs)
  • 1 tsp Maca powder SONY DSC
  • 1 Tbs raw organic coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs shelled hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp good quality vanilla essence
  • 5 cashew nuts
  • 1 Tbs of honey
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 200 ml of filtered water or cooled green tea

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer into ice lolly moulds and freeze.
