Did you know? 80,000 tonnes of yoghurt is wasted in the UK each year, this is a tragedy, particularly when you think about how many of these delicious ice lollies we could make with it. These lollies are a great way to save yoghurt and fruit for a later date. An amazing treat to whip out of the freezer for you and the kids at a family BBQ or garden picnic.

Ingredients (makes about 6 depending on the size of the moulds)

  • 500 grams yogurt (whichever yogurt you have available, plant-based or dairy both work well)
  • A handful of fresh fruit (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and thin banana slices work well)
  • A splodge of honey, date syrup or jam

Method

  1. Pour your favourite yogurt into a big bowl.

  2. Swirl in the fruit and a splodge of honey, date syrup or jam, basically whatever you have knocking about in your cupboard.

  3. Pour into ice lolly moulds and freeze for at least 2 hours, or till frozen solid. Run under warm water to help you ease the lolly from the mould. Delicious on a hot day.

Food savvy tip

You don't have to go out and buy new lolly moulds when you can use old yoghurt pots. Maybe not the big ones that you would use for the ingredients for this (unless you're really hungry), but the little ones will work a treat. You could use an ice cube tray as an alternative for a mini treat.
