Frozen Yoghurt Lollies Are The Ultimate Summer Treat For Kids

Cooking With Kids is our new weekly series on getting creative in the kitchen with the family.

We’re here to guide you through the coronavirus pandemic. Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.

Whether the kids are involved every step of the way or you fancy making this deliciously creamy frozen yoghurt pops for yourself, cool down this summer with our latest Cooking With Kids recipe.

Chef and cookbook author, Bettina Campolucci Bordi treats us to a healthy ice cream alternative that uses fresh fruit and lets the little ones get creative with their own favourite combination. “Try lots of different fruits or juices, these lovely lollies are easy to make, quick, and inexpensive,” she explains. “There is no need to spend money on expensive trendy moulds, either. I like to use old yoghurt pots – they work a charm!”

Have fun decorating together and give them the all-important task of popping the lollies out from pots. Bordi added: “It’s also an opportunity to teach your kids how to be kinder to the environment and discover new ways of reusing old things. Last but not least, patience – good things are worth waiting for.”
