We love making our own ice lollies, so when Center Parcs challenged us to make some we jumped at the chance! There are lots of tips for making lollies here.
I had seen some great recipes just recently in The Daily Telegraph so I thought we would try the Minted Milk Lollies.
Here is the recipe we used:
30g fresh mint leaves (we used all the leaves from a plant that we bought at the supermarket)
450 ml whole milk
250 ml double cream
125g granulated sugar
To make the lollies:
Crush the mint in a bowl with the back of a wooden spoon. This will help the flavour of the mint to seep out.
In a saucepan heat the milk, cream and sugar until almost boiling.
Remove from the heat and add the mint. Leave this to cool and infuse. (We left it for about 4 hours but you might want to leave in the fridge overnight)
Strain the liquid to remove any mint and pour into your lolly containers.
Freeze and enjoy- preferably in a secret den on a hot summers day!
