Okay, so the heatwave has passed and we're now back in more manageable summer temperatures, but that should be no reason no to take a punt on these little afternoon beauties. If you have friends round for lunch or chinwag in the garden, what could be better than an ice cold strawberry and Pimms lolly?
This recipe is not difficult at all and will make around 600ml – enough for eight lollies depending on the size of your lolly moulds and the appetite of you and your friends.
Preparation time: 10 minutes plus 4 hours freezing
- 300g strawberries and raspberries
- Leaves from 1 stem of mint
- 50g icing sugar
- 100ml Pimm’s
- 200ml Lemonade
- 4 slices cucumber, quartered
- 4 strawberries, sliced
Put the strawberries, raspberries, mint leaves and sugar into a blender and whizz until smooth. Pour through a fine sieve to remove the seeds.
Combine the berry mixture with the Pimm’s and lemonade and stir well. Put the cucumber and strawberry slices into the lolly moulds and pour in the liquid. Freeze for 4 hours or until solid.
