Raspberry and Lemonade Ice Lolly Recipe

Raspberry and Lemonade Ice Lolly Recipe

raspberry and lemonade ice lolly recipe

A couple of years ago, I discovered home made lemonade and I love it.  It is so cheap and easy to make and I often make jugs of it over the summer months.  You can find my simple recipe here.

Lemon and raspberry together make a lovely combination and I have discovered that drizzling a little of the syrupy lemonade over a bowl of fresh raspberries is a delicious treat.

The lovely people at Sykes Cottages asked us to create a family friendly ice lolly recipe and sent us an ice lolly mould and a gorgeous recipe book to help inspire us in our quest.  L got to work straight away and cleverly made some half apple juice, half blackcurrant squash ice lollies that everyone enjoyed and he was very pleased as he did them all by himself.

Having made some home made lemonade, I thought it would be nice to try something with that and so our raspberry and lemonade ice lollies were born.

Refreshing, fruity ice lollies
Author:
Serves: 6 - 8
Ingredients
  • 2 lemons
  • 100g raspberries
  • 300ml water
  • 75 - 100g caster sugar
Instructions
  1. Squeeze the juice from the two lemons and sieve to get rid of any pips and pulp
  2. Add the water to the lemon juice and add half of the sugar
  3. Give the lemonade a really good stir and taste, if it isn't sweet enough, keep adding a little more sugar until you are happy
  4. Wash the raspberries and place them in your ice lolly moulds
  5. Fill the moulds with your lemonade and put the sticks on the top
  6. Freeze for at least three hours
  7. Enjoy

The lemon mixture will taste quite strong but that is to allow for the freezing process which dilutes the lemon flavour quite a lot.  The result are really refreshing, fruity lollies which taste lovely, perfect for hot sunny afternoons in the garden.

    Gosh I’m craving these already, they look like they taste divine. Was a great idea – probably takes away the sharpness of the lemons too. Lovely. Hope you’re having a good Summer 🙂

    Life is not perpetual. Of course, this is a common truth, but do we always remember about it? How can we find out the essence of life staying motionless? They say if you don’t like the place where you are – move, you’re not a tree after all. By the same tenet, I want to say that traveling – is an important component of vivid life. Let’s not waste life without avail but explore this wonderful world! It remains to start moving, just click secrets of the planet and you will see all the riches of our world which are near to us. Very often various places for recreation are just round the corner, but we can’t find time for such rest. Start reading not fashion journals but brochures with natural landmarks. A illustrious poem says “What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare…” Let’s change our life!
