  • juice of 1 lime

  2. Pour into ice-lolly moulds, add sticks and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
    Tip
    Lolly tips
    This recipe make 6-10 lollies, depending on the capacity of your moulds (we used ones that held around 90ml each).

    Don’t overfill the moulds; leave about 1 cm gap from the top to make room for the stick, which will cause the liquid level to rise (the liquid will also expand slightly when frozen).

    Leave the frozen lollies at room temperature for 10 minutes before unmoulding so they’re the perfect consistency and pop out easily. If you’re in a hurry, run the mould under warm water for 30 seconds before removing.

    Don’t have a lolly mould? Make mini treats using ice-cube trays and cut-down lolly sticks.
