One of the best things to do on a hot summers day is to make homemade Ice Lollies, it’s a lovely activity to do with the kids and they taste amazing.
Find our quick and easy recipe for fruity orange and lemon ice lollies below.
Step 1: Finely grate the zest of one orange, remembering to be careful with your fingers!
Step 2: Cut the remaining oranges and lemons in half, then twist and squeeze the fruit on a juicer to remove as much juice as possible. Make sure to remove all the seeds once you have finished.
Step 3: Put the orange zest, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
Step 4: Allow it to simmer until the sugar has dissolved, then stir the syrup into the orange and lemon juice.
Step 5: Pour the mixture into your ice lolly mould, leaving half a centimetre at the top to allow the mixture to expand as it freezes.
Step 6: Insert the ice lolly sticks into the mixture. If your mould does not have a tray to insert sticks through, cover the top of the mould with foil and cut a little slit where you want the stick, then insert it through the foil.
Step 7: Put your mould at the back of the freezer where its coldest and leave for approximately 4-8 hours to freeze.
Step 8: When ready, remove the mould from the freezer and carefully immerse it in hot water for 10-20 seconds. Dip them right up to just below the top rim, then pull hard on the sticks to yank them out.
Step 9: Bursting with juicy flavour, you can now enjoy your thirst-quenching ice lollies on a hot day with family and friends!
