Method

  1. Line up 8 ice lolly moulds. Pour 2 tbsp orange juice into each. Put in the freezer for 1 hr.
  2. Divide the strawberries evenly between each mould. To get the fruit to show in the finished lollies, make sure you press the berries into the side of the moulds. Cover each one with 1 tbsp forest fruit juice. Leave to freeze for 30 mins, then push a lolly stick into each. Return to the freezer for 1 hr.
  3. Remove from the freezer and add 2 tbsp orange juice to each mould for the final layer. Return to the freezer for at least 2 hrs to make sure the lollies are fully set.
  4. Briefly dip the lolly mould in warm water to release the ice. Eat straight away.

Tip: It's easy to change the flavours: simply swap the juice to your preferred choice, but use the same quantities.

You can still make these if you do not have ice lolly moulds – simply wash out and reuse empty yogurt pots. You may need to increase the quantities of juice for each layer.
