Every summer we end up filling our freezer with all kinds of ice lollies. Though we can certainly buy some made with “all natural” or even “organic” ingredients, I always feel best when my kids consume ice lollies we make at home. Good thing it is SUPER easy to do! In the past we have made ice lollies with fresh fruit and coconut water, Greek yoghurt and fruit, or simply fruit juice, but this time we’ve made some out of 100% whole fruit.
Our garden has the most prolific pair of rhubarb plants, and I’m doing my best to make the most of our abundant supply. There are countless lovely uses for the tart, astringent stalks of the plant (never eat the leaves – they are loaded with oxalic acid); the timeless strawberry rhubarb pie ranks high as a late Spring favorite.
