Strawberry sorbet lollies (10 mins prep plus freezing time)


(Photo from

More sun is forecast this weekend so I’m making the most of it and made some of these (although I ate one before remembering to take a photo so have used the website image!)  I can confirm they are delicious and taste just like a simple strawberry sorbet.  There are only four ingredients too so the whole lot cost about £2.50 to make.  You can strain the strawberries after you have blended them to remove the pips but I don’t think there is any need.  Makes approx 6 lollies and took about 8 hours to freeze, but this must vary according to your freezer.  Enjoy the sun!


50g caster sugar

60ml water

250g strawberries, hulled and cut in half

1 medium orange, squeezed

Put the sugar and water into a saucepan and boil for 3 to 4 minutes until syrupy.  Puree the strawberries, combine the strawberry puree, syrup and orange juice then pour the mixture into ice-lolly moulds. Freeze until solid.
