Here in the UK we have actually had a summer. And not a rainy pretend summer. A really hot summer. Long lazy days, BBQs and ice-cold fruit cocktails by candle light. Amazing. Having just graduated I’ve had time to chill too while I’m on the job search which has been incredible, though the job searching not so much.
The first time I went to make these I couldn’t find any moulds, so after hours of looking (OK not that much looking) I ended up drinking the smoothie straight from the blender with a draw. It was good. Really really good. But the next day I tried again, armed with new moulds and much less hungry, and it turns out the mixture does taste even better in popsicle form. The yogurts give them the best creamy texture and we also had about 100 limes to use up from a recent party – so on went the lime zest sprinkles, which thankfully gave the most amazing kick and finished these off perfectly. But to be honest there is no wrong when it comes to ice-lollies. Everything is right. Sprinkle whatever you fancy on these babies (I hear they’re quite good with a raw chocolate snap coating too).
