A cooling Ice lolly recipe with homemade vanilla mint ice cream. The ingredients are nothing more than banana, Greek yogurt, creme fraiche, mint, honey and vanilla seeds. Healthy, delicious and perfect for a summers day.
I’m adding to my summer recipe collection again, but this time its a dessert [slash] summer treat. AND… if its a summer treat then you just know that it has to be some kind of ice cream. How about mint ice cream? Healthy mint ice cream? In the shape of an ice lolly? YESSSS – I think so.

Mint Ice cream lollies
I love Magnums, and Feasts, and Cornettos – particularly the mint versions of all these. When I was little it was always mint choc chip or just plain vanilla, – mint was always a winner in my eyes. Now I’m older I still love a mint cornetto, or huge slice of mint Vienetta ….mmmmm I love Vienetta. . . But . . . I hate the pang of guilt I feel when I purge on any of the above. So I decided it was time to make my own mint ice cream. Mint ice cream that would be healthy, stand up to my childhood cravings, and be some kind of a match to a mint Feast or Magnum.
It took a few attempts but after a couple of tries I came up with a lovely creamy mint ice cream that I could literally blitz together in 5 minutes and then pour into a mould to freeze into ice lolly shapes. The best bit is that its all healthy ingredients that can be found in any supermarket and theres no churning required or ice cream machine needed. Just a blender and a cheap lolly mould – plus some wooded lolly sticks.

I managed to purchase a lovely little ice lolly mould from amazon along with some very reasonably priced wooden lolly sticks:
