Sometimes, when the weather is hot and humid, all you want to do is wrap your mouth round a delicious, juicy lolly.
Eating ice lollies in the summer sun has to be one of life's greatest simple pleasures. It makes me instantly happy - and instantly refreshed.
These Strawberries and Cream Protein Ice Lollies took just seconds to whip up, yet they've worked a treat in this week's humidity. Great at cooling me down and refreshing me mid-afternoon when you feel all sweaty and yucky. The toddler has also proven to be addicted!
I made these by using a few products I had been sent by some lovely companies - Drink Wahta and Love Your Blender. However, they are so easy to adapt to whatever flavours you like, and you can use whatever's handy in your fridge too.
I hope you enjoy!
