Ice lollies in the summer months must be one of my son Ted’s favourite sweet treats. Ted is seven, nearly eight and I don’t know what he would do if all the treats in the world disappeared. My son, no matter how hard I try has a very sweet tooth. My husband Howard’s and my side of the family all enjoy or enjoyed the sweet stuff a little to much as well. Therefore I definitely think it’s in our genes.
Hence the reason why I try to steer clear of it. For me, along with the sweet tooth comes an addictive personality too. When we buy my son sweet treats we always try to buy the better quality foods. The lemonade in this recipe is the best quality one we could find. I don’t think I can stop Ted wanting sweet foods.
At the end of the day it’s his decision to eat them. I can try to explain to him my understanding of what sugar can do but he is in charge of his body. What I can do is buy the better quality products and touch wood, one day he will want to eat the better quality foods. For now these are a sweet treat I don’t mind him having every so often. Plus they are very refreshing on a hot summer day too. xxx

Strawberry and Lemonade Ice Lollies were a huge hit in our house. We really enjoyed eating these ice lollies as an after lunch treat. These could be made and frozen in advance of a kids party or just as a sweet treat during the summer holidays. A great treat to keep in the freezer for you and your family. However you decide to eat these ice lollies, as always, please enjoy. Thank you.
