Lollies are one of the easiest things for children to make themselves and they get a post school treat to boot! Chris shows how simple it is to make fruity yoghurt lollies for a bright sunny day.
We make a lot of lollies as summer gets into gear. Elderflower cordial made fresh from the tree makes for a particularly delicious seasonal ice, as do summer fruits whizzed up with a bit of icing sugar and frozen.

My youngest loves yoghurt and fruit, combine them together in a lollipop and he thinks I am the world’s best Mum!
Cool Fruity Yoghurt Lollies
Makes 6-8 lollies depending on the size of your moulds
250ml plain full fat yoghurt
200g fresh strawberries, hulled
30-50g icing sugar
Put the strawberries, yoghurt and 30g of icing sugar in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and add more sugar if necessary.
Pour into lolly moulds and freeze.
Warm mould slightly under a running tap to release and enjoy! I love that these are so quick and simple to make, don’t need an ice cream maker and are better for him than an egg custard and cream mix, he just loves that they taste good!
