Strawberry Spearmint Ice Lollies-vegan, no added sugar


The perfect Summer cooler: now all we need is the Summer :(

Undeterred by the distinct lack of sunny weather here in the UK, my grown-up stepdaughter Roisin has been experimenting with funky, healthy ice lollies made from teas and juices and texting me about them! I decided to reply to her with one of my own, so Sheenie, this one's for you! x (And you'd better come over and get one before they all go...)
I'm also sending this to Indrani's "Summer Cooler" event; check out all the wonderful recipes she's collected there.

400g fresh ripe strawberries, washed and hulled
1 tab agave nectar
1 tab fresh spearmint leaves
  • Mash the strawberries coarsely.
  • Snip the spearmint into really fine pieces with a pair of sharp kitchen scissors and add to the pulped strawberries.
  • Stir in the agave nectar. If you think your strawberries are not perfectly ripe, then add a little more.
  • Let stand for about half an hour to let the flavours infuse.
  • Pour into 6 lolly moulds- or you can use small plastic cups with a lolly stick or teaspoon in them- and freeze until solid.
