Cool off in the sunshine with the help of juicy, seasonal nectarine ice lollies. Helped along with fresh mint and a drizzle of honey for some sweetness, a healthy treat has never been easier. Add a sprinkle of chilli flakes for a kick of heat, if you fancy. See method
of the reference intake
Slice ¼ of 1 nectarine into 10 thin slices and divide between 10 lolly moulds with the crushed chillies, if using.
Cut crosses into the bases of the other 2 nectarines and put in a heatproof bowl with the remaining ¾ nectarine. Cover with boiling water for 30 secs, then drain and run under cold water. Gently press the skin to loosen, then peel away and discard (use a peeler or small knife to help if needed).
Roughly chop the peeled nectarines, discarding the stones, then transfer to a powerful blender with the honey, lemon juice and 200ml water. Blend until smooth. Add the mint leaves and pulse to roughly chop. Carefully divide the mixture between the lolly moulds. Add the lolly sticks, then freeze for at least 6 hrs (ideally overnight) before serving.
Cook's tip: Dip the lolly mould in a sink of warm water for 20-30 secs to loosen the ice lollies, if needed.
