Extra Tips

Below we have a few extra pointers to ensure you create the tastiest ice lollies:

• Many of the recipes below are easily adapted and can be slightly adjusted to suit your taste preferences.
How long it takes the ice lollies to freeze will depend on the ingredients. For example, yoghurt based ones may take longer, and as we have mentioned, they may require overnight freezing. Most lollies will take around six to eight hours, but you can keep checking their progress every few hours.
• For yoghurt based lollies, the process doesn’t have to stop after freezing! You can always dip them in chocolate and sprinkles (or whatever ingredients you prefer) to make them extra special. This part might be especially fun for younger children and is a chance for them to be creative.
