Fruity, cooling treats

It has been a GLORIOUSLY sunny day, & I think we could all do with a cooling treat.
Here, have a fruity ice lolly that Kai & I made.
We sliced up any soft fruit we had in ..... I'm sure you could use harder fruit such as apples & pears but I find ones that are softer such as strawberries, grapes & oranges are easier to eat in a lolly.
The fruit was popped into a lolly maker, followed by pure orange juice, then frozen. Tada, fruity ice lolly.

Want something a bit more grown up? Try freezing chunks of fruit & then using them instead of ice cubes
As they defrost, some of the fruit such as raspberries, release their juices flavouring your drink.
We tried it in OJ, but I'll be trying it again another time in lemonade.
You could also use it to teach your little ones about sinking & floating .... see the grapes at the bottom?
