Healthy Ice Lollies

As children, myself and my siblings spent every summer in Ibiza. My uncle who is a singer, ran an Irish pub there and entertained the masses. He actually only retired from the pub after 26 years – the end of an era for our family but we have very fond memories of this island that will go on forever. I was only 6 when we started to visit, so my memories of Ibiza would be very different to others; swimming pools, slides and one of my favourite treats: Strawberry Calipso. I probably ate one every day, and I’m not sure if they sell this flavour in Ireland now, but growing up you could only get them in Spain which made it extra special.

While shopping in Tiger recently I saw a set of push up-ice lolly moulds, and the memories of siiting by the pool as a child came flooding back –  I had to buy them! Like everything in Tiger they were super cheap, at only €4 for 4 moulds. The weather has been so humid over the last couple of weeks, meaning ice lollies make the perfect treat. They are so easy to make, using only 4 ingredients and 2 mins preparation time – the hardest part will be waiting for them to set!
