Fresh Fruit Yogurt Ice Lollies

If it was up to my son I think he’d have ice lollies as his main source of nutrition, normally they’re not that great but the fresh fruit yogurt ice lollies I’m sharing today are actually a brilliant source of Vitamin D so they make the perfect snack. What’s more, they’re easy enough for kids to make too – my three and six year old made these. Oh and did I mention they’re delicious? I may have wolfed a couple down this week too!

Do your kids need more Vitamin D

Some days my kids eat a great, well balanced diet, some days they don’t – particuarly my three year old who has gone from wanting a plate full of vegetables to a plate full of crackers. While I know it’s only a stage (I hope anyway) some days its a bit of a concern and I do try to make sure that where possible I can get as many vitamins in to them as possible. I’ve been really happy to be working with Petits Filous as it’s helped me to understand a lot more about their yogurts and exactly why my kids need enough vitamin D in their diets. Vitamin D is needed for the normal development of bones, teeth and muscles and it’s made by the reaction of sunlight on the skin as well as being consumed as part of your diet. Most of us are pretty careful when it comes to make sure our kids don’t get too much sun, covering them up and popping on SPF50 sun cream to protect their skin, but we need to make sure they’re still able to get enough vitamin D. Petits Filous is a great way for kids to get their vitamin D with 50% of the Nutrient Reference Value vitamin D per portion in the main range and Petits Filous have also made meaningful decreases in the sugar contents of their yogurts over the last ten years – making it a great all round choice for your family.

Fresh Fruit Yogurt Ice Lollies

My kids loved picking some Petits Filous yogurts at the supermarket and my son was especially keen to freeze the Frubes yogurts which he adores. We thought it would be fun to make some yogurt ice lollies of our own using Petits Filous and some fresh fruit.

You will need

Petits Filous (one or two yogurts per ice lolly)

Fresh fruit – sliced (we used strawberries)

Ice lolly moulds

How to make fresh fruit yogurt ice lollies

We started by slicing the strawberries thinly and them popping them into our ice lolly moulds. The kids then choice their favourite Petits Filous yogurts to fill them, my son going for strawberry and my daughter choosing apricot. They spooned in the yogurt until it reached the top of the moulds, it can get a bit stuck so if this happens just use a spoon to wiggle it round and bit and push the yogurt down. Wipe up any mess and your yogurt ice lollies are ready to go in the freezer.

We left our fresh fruit yogurt ice lollies to set for a couple of days and then opened them up for a snack in the garden. If they do get a bit stuck just run the mould under a warm tap. Petits Filous are perfect for eating out and about, we loved taking our ice lollies out while we played but the Frubes are also great for a snack when you’re out at the park and I regularly pop the yogurts into my kids lunch boxes if we’re out for the day.

    I’d not thought of freezing yoghurt to make ice lollies before – it’s a great idea.

    These look so tasty and also I imagine would save money in making them Vs buying them from a shop. You know what’s in them too!

    ooh yum yum what a brilliant idea. We used to always make our own icelollies but have got out of the habit. Will definitely try this as my boys love Petit Filous and fruit x

    Yes we need more Vitamin D and those lollies look delicious!

    These look like a great thing to make with little ones. I need to invest in some lollie moulds.

    I love the simple lollies you made with the Petitis Filous , they look so pretty and healthy. great that the children can help to make them. I am much lazier, as we literally freeze the yogurt as it is! x

      No shame in that at all – both ways taste great!

  9. 16th August 2017 / 7:13 pm

    Wow, these look absolutely delicious I would never have thought to have made ice lollies from them, but they look so delicious I am going to give them a go.

    This is such a great idea. My boys love frozen Petits Filous but I bet it’s even better with some added fresh fruit too.

    Oh my goodness these look incredible! We absolutely must give them a go. I’m so pleased Petits Filous contains vitamin D as the small one absolutely loves them. She’s outdoors a lot too but often wearing suncream – or layers depending on the time of year.

  13. 19th August 2017 / 6:36 pm

    Oh my! These really do look delicious and such a wonderful way to get all that Vitamin D goodness! x

    They look delicious! I do love the idea of healthy lollies.

  15. 20th August 2017 / 8:24 pm
