Nice Ice

I would love to say that my children live without sugar, additives and E numbers but that would be a bare faced lie. A big one. They have far too many biscuits, chuppa chups, haribo.... so when I am feeling particularly guilty I turn to rather more wholesome folk for advice - this recipe is from Gwyneth Paltrow's book It's All Good - lollies with 3 ingredients that are indeed all good. Perfect for sunny treats this weekend.

Disclaimer: Lentil and the Mint takes no responsibility for clothes ruined in the eating of these lollies and highly recommends consuming while naked. 


2 Cups of Frozen Fruit
2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk


Pulse all the ingredients in a food processor and serve immediately or pour into lolly moulds and put in the freezer.


  1. Brilliant!! You are like my life support at moment. I bought some ice-lolly moulds weeks ago and haven't bothered to do anything about them. Now I can - thanks. xxx P.S. Cute pictures, as ever.

  2. They look sooo yummy! And simple and not very naughty!

    I was so good with my first one with sugar and then Baby Vick came along and then it all went out the window. Now it's just whatever keeps the peace from moment to moment. Biscuits and ice cream - it's all medicating and a way of life here!
