After all the chocolate I have indulged in recently, I wanted my next recipe to be light, fruity and healthy and something so easy I didn’t need to break into a sweat to make it. And with the sun shinning it was a no brainer, I wanted a creamy on the go dessert.

Ice lollies with fruit in a bowl

 

I love ice cream and ice-lollies, they are a great quick and easy desserts or cheeky afternoon treat. But I didn’t want to make anything unhealthy, I was craving sweetness but not the calories!

So I raided my fruit bowl and came up with strawberries, bananas and kiwis. Banana and strawberry make wonderful smoothies but I find kiwis don’t blend well, turning everything a sludgy brown with their seeds.

 

Fruit Smoothie & Greek Yogurt Ice Lolly with chopped fruit

 

I chucked the strawberries, banana a dash of skimmed milk and lemon Greek yogurt in a blender and whizzed them all together, it would have made a great smoothie but I wanted ice-lollies 🙂

I poured the smoothie into my ice-lolly moulds and sliced up my kiwi and popped a slice in each mould. And popped them in the freezer overnight. And waited impatiently for my fruit smoothie and Greek yogurt ice lollies!

What I got the next day was a creamy, fruity dessert on a stick.

I used a fat free lemon Greek yogurt in mine as I am a huge fan of all things citrus, and I felt the lemon would give it a nice bite, which it did but this would work just as well with a natural flavoured Greek yogurt. There is no rule that you have to use fat free yogurt I just happen to like my yogurt fat free, and it does help to keep the calories down on these lovely little treats. I’m not a calorie counter by any means but it is nice now and again to be able to enjoy a guilt free treat. And I had no guilt about these at all.
