lemonade ice lolly

Homemade pink lemonade ice lollies recipe

I always get over excited when buying lemons, a bit like Jamie Oliver (anyone else notice he seems to LOVE lemons?). Recently I had a few lemons leftover, and a handful of raspberries so decided to make homemade lemonade for a picnic we were planning.

This made 1 1/2 litres of lemonade, some of which was left over so I put them into ice lolly trays. The pink lemonade ice lollies were fantastic! So refreshing and easy, and what’s more no waste either!

While researching how to make the lemonade, I read some recipes that stated it was OK to just use a fine sieve to get rid of any lemon peel leftover. I tried this and found it too bitter as it didn’t get rid of some of the pith that had gone into the lemonade. So my advice would be to:

1) Use a muslin cloth to drain the lemonade, it’s slow but worth it.

2) Be very careful when cutting the peel from the lemons to avoid as much of the white pith as possible.

See the recipe below for gorgeous home made pink lemonade, and don’t forget to freeze the rest for refreshing ice lollies!
