#ShabbatShalom : Ice-Lolly Genius

Ok I didn't invent this but we had a serendipitous moment this week when DD discovered that she didn't like the (cheap) yogurts she had chosen. I put plastic spoons through the lids and froze them. For 2.54 nis (about 13p) a [lolly]pop, DD is eating yogurts and thinks they are the biggest treat out. For reference the only other ice-lollies that cost 2 1/2 shekels are the sugar, fruit flavouring, colouring, and water kind. These are not much better in the healthy department but I'll choose better yogurts next time - now that I know  how well it works. It's very hard to deny your child an ice-lolly when it's so hot out.

  1. What a good idea! I am going to try that with the banana flavoured yoghurts that always get rejected! :D

    1. Yes, when they are this cold the flavour doesn't matter. We accidently bought the mixed fruit indsaed of strawberry which is why she didn't like them as yogurts. But an ice-lolly is an ice-lolly.

    1. Totally. I made an incision in the lid first with a sharp knife so as not to duff in the lid and Bob's your uncle.

  5. Don't know if my comment worked. I was saying what an inspired idea and is it difficult to get the packaging off?
