If there is one product you need for your kitchen at the moment, it’s an ice lolly maker. Simply the easiest and most delicious way to keep your cool when the heat is on, you can make ice lollies with the most spectacular array of flavours and hardly any mess in your kitchen!
Wares of Knutsford’s ice lolly maker range
You can buy two different kinds of ice lolly maker at Wares of Knutsford. The first is a set of four in green and yellow dishwasher safe plastic. A particularly clever feature of this product is the sipper base, which avoids mess by catching the drops of juice which melt from the bottom of the lolly. The moulds can be fixed together and are flat based for stability in the freezer.
Alternatively you can go for a complete set of eight separate plastic moulds with an accompanying rack to stand them safely while freezing. This set is handwash only and comes with 16 traditional wooden lolly sticks.
As you’re likely to get through quite a few lollies this summer, we can also supply you with replacement wooden lolly sticks, in a pack of 24 sticks of 15cm.
Recipes for your ice lolly maker
Ice lolly makers aren’t just for coloured water – you can make ice lollies out of yoghurt too and fill them with lumps of fruit or other goodies. Ice lollies are an easy way to keep treats ready at all times – there’s no need for any preparation, just take them out of the freezer and enjoy!
Frozen berry cheesecake pops
- 100g gingernut biscuits, mashed into fine crumbs
405g light condensed milk can
- 500g fresh mixed red berries – try raspberries, redcurrants, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and blackcurrants
- 500g natural Greek yoghurt
Mix the ginger nut crumbs with two tablespoons of condensed milk and mix well so that the crubs form clumps. Add a dollop of the crumb mixture to the bottom of each ice lolly mould and use a wooden spoon to press down.
Add half the berries to a food processor with the rest of the condensed milk and the yoghurt and blend until smooth. Roughly chop the remaining berries and add to a large bowl with the smooth yoghurt mixture, stirring well to combine. Pour the fruit and yoghurt mixture into the ice lolly moulds, leaving a small gap at the top to allow for some expansion in freezing. Push a lolly stick into each and freeze for a minimum of four hours before serving.
