Today’s blog is another recipe. As the weather is getting warmer, I wanted to share 2 ice-lolly recipes with you that as well as being gluten and dairy free are also a great way of sneaking extra fruit and veg into your diet. As I’m suffering with low-iron at the moment, I wanted to create a recipe that had lots of hidden iron sources but was also really refreshing!  The second is a frozen adaptation of my anti-inflammation smoothie, which I know lots of you liked!

 

Recipe 1: Iron Boosting Lolly

Superfood Veggie Ice Lollies
Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Jenna
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2 lollies
A healthy ice lolly recipe which is gluten and dairy free. These superfood veggie ice lollies pack a punch, full of vitamins and Iron.
Ingredients
  • 1 handful of spinach.
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 courgette
  • 2 pieces of raw beetroot
  • 1 thumbnail piece of ginger
  • 1 slice of lemon and lime
  • Optional: If you are suffering with low iron, try adding Spatone to the lolly mixture once juiced. I’ve found this much easier to digest than most and it will be boosted by the vitamin C from the kiwi.
Instructions
  1. Use a regular juicer to juice the spinach, kiwi, beetroot, courgette and ginger.
  2. Add a squeeze of lemon and lime
  3. Pour into ice-lolly moulds (I used these from Lakeland but you can get them from lots of places, including Poundland!).
  4. Leave to set for 8 hours.

 

The result is a really refreshing ice-lolly that has a good dose of vit c (from the kiwi), iron (spinach and beetroot) and a good zing to it! (from the ginger and lime!). It is a much nicer way of getting your morning juice done!

Recipe 2: Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Lolly

  • Use all the ingredients from my anti-inflammatory smoothie post and blend with a nutribullet.
  •  For an extra creamy taste, pour in a dollop of coconut yoghurt once blended.
  • Once smooth, pour into the ice lolly moulds for a delicious smoothie lol with an omega  boost (chia seeds) and anti-inflammatory properties from the turmeric

    I always have low iron levels so the iron boosting one looks great to me, and actually sounds quite tasty which these things don’t tend to be x

    Wow those natural colours are fantastic and what creative lollies you have made. I rather like the sound of the ginger in the Iron Boosting lolly!

    I love the vibrant colour of the beetroot lolly – so pretty! I need to use beetroot more, I’m just always afraid of staining my entire kitchen pink! 😉
