4 Super Healthy, Easy To Make Ice Lolly Recipes
Lollipops, ice lollies, popsicles or ice pops.. it's all about the flavour! Check out these mouth-watering DIY lolly recipes by PRESS.
There’s nothing like an ice cold, fruity popsicle to cool you down on a hot summers day. Whilst it's easy to buy one from your local supermarket, 9 times out of 10, they're high in sugar without an ounce of nutrient dense fresh fruit! At PRESS, we love a sweet treat and we've created 4 ice lollies with our healthy juices that you can make for picnics, parties and for when you're simply craving that cooling indulgence. We've also included wholesome ingredients you can find at home, should you need to substitute and for those with special dietary requirements these lollies are also:

The classic British summer combo! A perfect balance between refreshing, creamy and sweet, this lolly is guaranteed to satisfy your cravings without jeopardising your summer bod. Not to mention that strawberries are a good source of vitamin C and vanilla is an aphrodisiac. They're utterly dreamy so we won't judge you if you eat two in one sitting...
Vanilla Leche - Spring water, Almonds, Rice, Medjool Date, Vanilla Bean.
No summer is complete without at least one citrus lolly! We like ours with a little kick, in the form of cayenne pepper... you're going to have to trust us on this one. The pop is super rich in Vitamin C and is refreshing, sweet and tangy.
Grove 3, Sweet Citrus - Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Turmeric, Cayenne, Black Pepper
*Tip: If you’re feeling devilish, why not add a splash of alcohol to the mixture and turn them into icy cocktails on a stick? We know how to have fun too...
The ultimate thirst quencher and the easiest to make at home. If you have water and a lemon you're practically half way there. All the top spas serve lemons in water (because it's sooo good for you) but do they freeze them into ice lollies? Nope. Berries are just the best as they are a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants which both support the normal function of the immune system.
Citrus Water - Water, Lemon Juice, Lime Juice, Agave Syrup, Cayenne Pepper.
Berries - Raspberries, Blueberries.
Mint Choc Chip is a classic, indulgent ice-cream but we've created the healthier popsicle alternative! Matcha and Cacao are a winning combo because you get the sweet green tea flavour mixed with creamy cacao. The mint is optional and not to everyones taste but it adds an extra burst of flavour that is heavenly. Matcha is basically green tea using the whole leaf and may provide you with the energy boost you need as well as a good dose of antioxidants. Cacao is the unprocessed version of chocolate and is jammed packed full of special antioxidants called flavanols, which may support heart health. Taking all of the above into consideration… it would be rude not to.
Matcha Leche - Spring Water, Almonds, Rice, Medjool Date, Matcha Green Tea.
Cacao Leche - Spring Water, Almonds, Rice, Medjool Date, Raw Cacao.
Pea Protein* - Organic Vegan Protein - optional, for the 'POW'!
