Summer Pudding Ice Lollies

Summer Pudding Ice Lollies

Dessert | July 22, 2016 | By

Summer Pudding is my all time favourite summer dessert.  All of those sweet berries oozing their juice through slices of thick white bread, oh my goodness it’s so delicious and these Summer Pudding Ice Lollies are super-delicious too.  

 

When I picked blackcurrants last weekend, I didn’t have time to make a summer pudding. However,  I did make a fruit compote using the summer berries and it occurred to me that this might make a good ice lolly, and that’s how I created Summer Pudding Ice Lollies,  and they are a triumph!

Ingredients
  1. 100g Blackcurrants
  2. 200g Strawberries
  3. 100g Raspberries
  4. 50g Redcurrants
  5. 180g Sugar*
Instructions
  1. Place the blackcurrants and redcurrants into a pan with the sugar and a tbsp of water.
  2. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves, the juice runs and the blackcurrants start to soften.
  3. Add the raspberries and strawberries and cook gently for 5 minutes more, you don't want to break up the fruit just soften it slightly.
  4. Take off the heat and cool a little, check the sweetness*, it needs to be sweeter than you need for eating as compote as the sweetness diminishes with freezing. If you need more sugar, add another tablespoonful and heat gently to dissolve.
  5. Leave until completely cold.
  6. Fill into lolly moulds and freeze until solid, preferably overnight.
Notes
  1. The quantities of currants and berries can be varied it's up to you, just check the sweetness. I didn't have any redcurrants so added more blackcurrants, you can also use frozen fruit in your compote, I used frozen raspberries. The yield of lollies is also dependant on the size of your lolly moulds. If you have some left over, it's lovely on greek yogurt for breakfast.

 When I went outside to take the photographs I was thrilled to find that there were a couple of ripe strawberries on the plants in my pots, they added the perfect finishing touch!

Take luscious summer berries and make these Summer Pudding Ice Lollies

I really recommend that you get yourself some ice lolly moulds, it’s so easy to make lollies and they have so much more flavour and you know exactly what ingredients have gone into them.  If you like these lollies have a look at my Chocolate Dipped Mango Mousse Ice Lollies.

Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream is running again this month and Kavey Eats has chosen ‘dairy-free’ as the theme.  There is nothing but fruit, sugar and a little water in these ice lollies so I think they are perfect for this challenge.

Loving the mix of summer berries and not overcooking so they retain some shape within the compote base! Perfect ice lolly, thanks for entering BSFIC!

Oh yes please!! I’d LOVE these especially with the black and red currants which I cannot find here in the US! I could totally replace them with other fruits/berries and make a similar lollie, though. Your photos are fab, Janice!! Keep cool!
