Once I made some beautiful 100% fruit ice lollies for my daughters; the top half was blended mango; I waited till the mango was ridiculously juicy and sweet…the other half was blended berries with honey. Not particularly successful, probably due to my less than quality lolly moulds, and my youngest announced she liked mango “in pieces, but not cold, in an ice lolly”, and my eldest said she liked berries “but not like this”. Mental note not to repeat.
The other day as they were searching in the freezer for interesting booty, they happened upon a box of strawberries that I had frozen for smoothies, and duly pounced! Since they still had their hulls on, they even had a useful little handle, and they raved about how delicious they were to eat….as testified by the half empty box (or was it half full?) . I will never bother with lolly moulds again!
