What’s better than a fruity ice lolly to cool you down on a hot summer’s day? There’s something about that sweet citrus taste that just brings out the inner child in us all. As delicious as they are, they can sometimes be full of sugars and additives – and it’s totally unnecessary! I have a great alternative for you to try, a homemade version with lots of good, nutritious ingredients. It’s super simple to do, making it a great activity to keep the kids entertained in the holidays. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months, so this healthy and refreshing treat will be a hit all summer long…
