Strawberries and cream ice lollies

I am totally in love with Wimbledon. I love watching the tennis, gathering with friends and family to watch big matches, eating strawberries and a Pimms or two.

This year I’ve been invited by Wimbledon sponsor Christy (they also provide the players’ towels) to spend the day on centre court – eeeeee! SO excited.

I have done a little piece for the Christy guide to Wimbledon and come up with my top tips for holding a Wimbledon tennis party at home and I just want to share a recipe that’s included in the guide that would be perfect for the weather this week!

Ingredients

(to make four medium sized lollies)

Strawberries – a small punnet

Caster sugar – about 2 tbsp (or to taste)

Squeeze of lemon

Vanilla ice cream, slightly softened but do not use soft scoop ice cream  – about 200g but it depends on how much ice cream you want to add and how big your moulds are

Four lolly sticks and lolly moulds (or use recycled yoghurt pots)

Recipe

1. Hull the strawberries and blend them to a puree with the caster sugar and squeeze of lemon juice.

2. Layer the lolly moulds with alternate spoonfuls of the strawberry purée and ice cream. Push the lolly sticks into the middle of the lollies and freeze for at least four hours, until they are frozen solid.

3. Ease the lollies out of their moulds carefully, running them under a hot tap for a few seconds if they get stuck. Eat before they melt!

    This is such a lovely version of those lollies we all used to buy from ice cream vans as a kid. What were they called? A miffy maybe? They had lurid strawberry ice lolly round the outside and ice cream inside. Gosh they must’ve been full of all sorts of unsavoury chemicals. I’ll definitely try these out instead!
