Gorgeous on Monday... smoothie ice lollies

Sorry to state the obvious but it's hot hot hot - even up in our Yorkshire office (and that doesn't happen very often!)

We think the best way to cool down in this heat is with a delicious smoothie ice lolly. Here are a few suggestions we love - get yourself a lolly making kit (try your local cook shop, Lakeland does a great range, or there's a fab rocket lolly set from Sam Turner's - available by mail order...) and get making!

Summer Berry Smoothie lollies
1 punnet strawberries
1 punnet raspberries
1 small pot natural bio yoghurt
1 teaspoon honey (or more, depending on how sweet you like your lollies!)
Blitz all these together in a blender, pour into moulds and freeze...

Banoffee pops
2 bananas
1 small pot natural bio yoghurt
2 tablespoons Dulce de Leche or Carnation caramelised condensed milk
Blitz, freeze, enjoy! For an extra indulgent treat, drizzle the frozen pop with melted chocolate or chocolate sauce...

Old fashioned lemonade ice lollies
Make up some lemon squash cordial (we like Rock's Organic lemon squash) with some lemonade, fill the ice lolly moulds, leaving a little room for the mix to expand as the bubbles come up out of the lemonade. Enjoy the most refreshing ice lollies under the sun...

Don't forget to stock up on your hot weather essentials in our ongoing sale - there are plenty of high-summer buys left in all sizes.
