Cool down in the Summertime with these refreshing Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles.
and the kids had great fun coming up with some suggestions for ice lollies, the ones they loved the most were these cute little Watermelon Ice Pops.
With the weather being pretty hot this week, I dug it out of the drawer to make some refreshing ice lollies, that I can enjoy to cool down that were low syn.
Hunting around for what I had, I combined some raspberries with some lemonade that was a little one the flat side (best thing to use, don't use fizzy or it will expand out of the moulds (trust me).
To make the raspberry lemon, I blended up the fresh raspberries in 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.
Remember blended or cooked fruit is synned, as only fruit in it's raw form is free. However these Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles only use 1 cup of raspberries which is 3 syns and when divided up into 8 which is how many ice lollies the mix makes, is less than 0.5 syns per lolly, so I have counted them as free.
Then once I had the raspberry puree, it is important to put it through a sieve to remove all the little seeds, otherwise you will have an Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles that is grainy.
Once you have put through the sieve, you can combine the raspberries with the slightly flat lemonade and 2-3 tbs of fresh lemon juice (depending on how sour you like them), you can taste test before adding to the moulds.
Then pour into the molds, place on the lid and pop in the wooden ice lolly sticks and you can place in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen, I run under running water just to loosen them from the mold and then pop into a zip lock bag and these Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles are all ready to grab and go for a hot summer's day when you fancy a refresh ice lolly.
Why not try some other fruits - like pomegranate, cherries, strawberries etc

Fruit is normally synned when blended or cooked, but as the amount per lolly is less than 0.5 syn, I am counting these as syn free.
