The ultimate summer refresher in these Raspberry Jelly and Blueberry Popsicles.
These ice lollies have been going fast, so much so I am creating a new batch nearly every day. The kids and adults love them.
Now you may be thinking Jelly in a popsicle - what the hell? But before you knock it, you have to trust me that it is amazing. I was first introduced to such a lolly growing up in Ireland. Well I say growing up, but I was actually born in London and didn't move to Ireland until I was aged 10 and then returned to the UK when I was 16. My mum's family is from there and she wanted to return to her home town.
It was while living there that I first tasted the ice lolly that is called a Wibbly Wobbly Wonder. It is seriously one of the best Ice Pops ever and all my Irish readers will relate to what I am talking about.
A Wibbly Wobbly Wonder is strawberry and banana ice-cream base, a lemon jelly top and then the jelly is covered in delicious milk chocolate. Sounds amazing, doesn't it? That's because it is.
I am totally going to be coming up with a low syn version of one of those, so watch this space.
But for now the kids wanted fruity and so for these Popsicles, I wanted to use fruity ingredients.
I love how it makes traditional looking ice pops and can make 10 at once, which is perfect.
For the top of the popsicles, I used a no added sugar raspberry jelly and then the base is fresh blueberries blended with some no added sugar fruit squash.
You of course have to freeze the jelly half first, and then make the blueberry squash mixture for the base, add that into the molds and then freeze again until the whole popsicle is frozen.
I blend the blueberries using my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ (click to see me on amazon). This blender is amazing. The auto iq technology feature, mean it blends to a set pattern depending on what it is your are making.
Once frozen and fully set, you can remove from the mold and place in a freezer ziplock bag, that way it frees up the ice pop mold to make some different ones of your choosing.
Want to know the best thing about frozen jelly? If it is a really hot day, it doesn't melt as fast a a traditional ice pop, so perfect for cooling down.
You've gotta give these a try!! and watch out for my low syn version Wibbly Wobbly Wonder, I hope to master.
