By Lora O’Brien

Whether you’re 8 or 80, you’re always the perfect age to enjoy a lovely ice lolly – just keep them healthy by making your own. There are lots of possibilities: pack them full of your favourite fruits, or make them creamier with the addition of coconut milk. Or if you’re feeling a little bit devilish, why not pop some alcohol into them for an adults-only treat at the end of a hot  summer’s day?

All you’ll need is  a popsicle mold, some sticks, and a big fruit bowl. These recipes are all vegan, or can easily be made vegan (by subbing agave syrup for honey, for example), and are super simple and quick to make. The hardest part will be having to choose from these 25+ deliciously healthy ice lolly recipes!

1. Jamie Oliver’s Breakfast Lollies

This recipe from Jamie Oliver is pretty enough for parties but healthy enough  for breakfast on the hottest of days.

All you need is 1 large banana, or 2 small bananas,  300 g frozen mixed berries,  50 g porridge oats,  400 ml pure organic apple juice, and if you like them a bit sweet, some honey (or agave syrup). Blend all until smooth, pour in the moulds and let freeze for at least 2 hours. Want to add a decadent touch? Melt 200g of quality white chocolate in a microwavable bowl. Swirl the frozen lollies around in the melted chocolate and wait a few minutes to let each lolly set. Serve immediately. Makes 12.

2. Creamy Summer Ice Lollies by Deliciously Ella

Sometimes, the best kind of lolly is a creamy one, in more than one flavour! This recipe by Deliciously Ella is a favourite for those who love chocolate-dipped strawberries. Far from a childish treat, this is a very sophisticated recipe and would be a welcome end to any summer dinner party.

3. Mango & Lime Popsicles    

These will quite literally take you seconds to throw together, and yet they look (and taste!) as if they’ve taken hours. The creamy coconut milk mingled with the mango and zesty lime is a refreshing explosion of flavour against this heat.

4.  Super Orange & Mango Ice Lollies

5.  Pomegranate and Limeade Popsicle  

Unsure how to integrate super antioxidizing  pomegranate seeds into your diet? Simple. Chuck them into a lollipop! The addition of pomegranate seeds here  adds a nice little crunch to this refreshing treat. And the tangy addition of the lime works well with the ripe pomegranate tones. Tip: add a few drops of Stevia if you like your lollies super sweet!

6.  Strawberries & Cream Popsicle

Strawberries and cream  are possibly ‘the’ classic British summer combo. The layering takes a bit more time to make, but the result is well worth it.

7.  Avocado Key Lime Popsicles

12. Rainbow Fruit Popsicles    

It doesn’t get easier than simply blending a bunch of fruit into a layered popsicle now, does it? That really is all that’s needed in this very simple yet incredibly tasty recipe, and it’s much healthier than the store-bought ones that are usually full of artificial colourings and flavourings.

13.  Watermelon Fruit Popsicles

18. Simple Kiwi Popsicles

These seriously don’t look like they contain banana in them, but they do. And with the tartness of the kiwi, the banana is the perfect addition of sweetness to balance these pops out.

20.  Apple Pie Popsicle

21.  Strawberry, Rhubarb & Lime Popsicle

Too hot to cook breakfast? Hate cleaning up after making smoothies? These popsicles are the perfect solution! Packed with fruit and oatmeal, they’re filling as any smoothie, and you can make several of these at once and freeze, meaning you don’t need to tidy up after your daily drink!

25. Green Juice Ice Lollies

Why drink your green juice when you can suck on it for awhile and really enjoy that healthy goodness? This recipe is about as healthy as it gets, but don’t worry – it tastes more of fruit than spinach. To make it vegan, replace yogurt with coconut yogurt, and honey with agave syrup. Simples!

26. Spring Bouquet Champagne Popsicles

Planning a bridal or baby shower? These are the perfect dessert! But before you go tearing up the flowers from your garden, please note that these are entirely edible flowers, which you can buy here.

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
