Ice lolly recipes to beat the heat

When we’re lucky enough to be treated to more than three consecutive days of summer, staying hydrated is more important than ever. And what could be better than an ice lolly to ward off dehydration? We love making our own as it means there’s no chance of the ice cream van running out of our favourite flavour, and we can ensure that they are filled with fresh, healthy ingredients rather than processed sugar and artificial colouring. Try our fail-safe ice lolly and ice cream recipes below:
