Strawberry milk lollies

Welcome to Day Five of my week-long post highlighting some great ways to bring the nutrition milk offers into the everyday diet of you and your loved ones. The series has been an eye-opener for me - discovering the many ways in which to cook with milk (which I virtually always have in the fridge) in a variety of sweet and savoury recipes. I'm not sure exactly when milk went out of fashion in the kitchen, but it's time for it to make a comeback!

This recipe in particular was shockingly simple. It has made me think twice about buying store-made milk lollies again, since by making my own I can guarantee the quality of the ingredients - and I can spell them all too (there's only three for a start, which can only be a good thing). I absolutely hate reading the 'nutrition' labels on products that list items that sound like they should be in a science lab rather than on a plate! Even if you didn't want to make lollies, the mixture makes a lovely milkshake too (you could probably leave out the condensed milk for a shake, since lots of lolly recipes add this or yoghurt to help 'set' the mixture). You can also use this recipe as a basis for ice-cream, maybe even adding some sliced strawberries into the mix.

Strawberry Milk Lollies



Ingredients:
100g of ripe strawberries
50ml of a2 Milk
100g of condensed milk (you can use a 'light' version if you're worried about fat content


















Method:
  1. Hull the strawberries and blend (ideally in a jug, so you can pour the finished mix straight into your moulds).
  2. Pour in the milk and the condensed milk and mix it all together.
  3. Pour the final product directly into your lolly moulds and place in the freezer until set.
  4. Accept your Domestic Godess Award.

  1. Oh this sounds like a winner! I love condensed milk - next time I'm out, I shall pick up a can and get to work on lolly making!

    1. It took all my willpower not to just eat the entire can of condensed milk before it made it to the lollies actually!
