So I recently bought these fab little ice lolly moulds and wooden sticks from Amazon, so that I could make my own ice lollies for the kids – Norpro Frozen Ice Pop Maker, Multi-Colour (Note: this is an amazon affiliate link).
Looking for ideas for the first batch I could make for the kids, I stumbled across this fab recipe on Cooking Classy. There are a couple of ingredients I changed and they actually work out pretty low synned, so thought I would share with you all.
Instead of the maple syrup you could try using a zero calorie sweetener if you prefer, but I prefer to use natural rather than artificial, especially as these will be mostly for my kids. If you wish to reduce the syns even further, you could leave out the chocolate chips, but I figured everyone deserves a little bit of chocolate once in a while.
Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 3 syns per ice lolly
Green – 3 syns per ice lolly
Original – 3 syns per ice lolly
- 500g of seedless watermelon, chopped
- 3 tablespoons of maple syrup
- ½ cup of plain greek yoghurt
- 5 kiwi fruit, skin removed
- 15g of semi sweet chocolate chips
- Place the watermelon and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup in a blender and blend until you have a smooth liquid.
- Pour this into your ice lolly molds. Make sure you don't fill them past ⅔'s of the mold as you need space for the other two layers.
- Add chocolate chips (works out as about 4 per ice lolly)
- Place on lid and then pop in all the ice lolly sticks. Place in the freezer and allow this layer to freeze.
- Once layer is frozen, remove from freezer, take off lid and then you can do the second layer.
- Mix the Plain Greek yoghurt with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and then add this to each mold, leaving about the same space again for the 3rd and final layer.
- Place back in the freezer until 2nd layer is frozen and then remove for the final layer.
- Add kiwi fruit to blender with the last tablespoon of maple syrup and blend till smooth, then pour this in to the molds. Once complete, place lid back on and put back in the freezer till frozen.
- Once complete, you can remove ice lollies from the molds and I stored them in snack sized ziplock bags, making them easy to just take out of the freezer when requested.
- A lovely refreshing and delicious healthy treat in the summer or any time of year.
