As you probably know, we both have a soft spot for icecream. Any chance that we get, we make sure we have a batch of icy poles ready in the freezer to prevent any big icecream binges.

Making your own Icypoles on milk means they are much much lower in fat than a shop bought icecream, contain real fruit and you can control the sugar.

We make a big batch of smoothie to drink, then freeze the rest in icypole moulds. You could simply freeze in one big container and then blend to make a delicious frappe.

Adding chia seeds ensures you get an extra little hit of fibre, protein, iron and omega oils
