Strawberry Lemon Ice Lollies

For dessert today I made these strawberry and lemon ice lollies:



 and thought I'd share the recipe with you all.

You will need (for 12 in moulds the size of mine):

~ 400g Strawberries (sans green part)
~ 300ml Plain or Greek Yoghurt
~ 75g Icing Sugar
~ A Squeeze of Lemon Juice
~ Lolly Moulds - I got these appropriately coloured ones from Ikea for about £2

And you simply:

~ Measure out the yogurt and place into a bowl.
~ Place the strawberries and sugar into a food processor or blender and whizz until liquid (or you could mash them up with a fork/your hands)
~ Sieve the strawberry and sugar smoothie into the bowl of yoghurt and mix together well.
~ Add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste, I like about 2 tablespoons.
~ Spoon into your mould (remembering that the will expand slightly when frozen)
~ Freeze until frozen (obviously) and gobble up like we just did:


If you don't fancy yoghurt, or you have issues with dairy, you can substitute for fruit juice, but I would reduce the sugar a bit. 

You can also use any other type of fruit, the soft ones work best, raspberry, peach, mango etc, but I have made these with blueberry and apple which were yummy too.

I hope you enjoy these, they're going onto my "Create Every Day" page for today. If you want to join in and create something everyday, visit Emmaline Bride and sign the pledge.
