Homemade Ice Pops

Raspberry Ice Pops

Ingredients

125g fresh raspberries

75g caster sugar

250mls boiled water, hot enough to dissolve sugar

Method

1.  Place the raspberries in a food processor and whizz until smooth.

2.  If you like, you can strain the mixture now to remove all the “bits”.  I don’t bother because I love them.

3.  Dissolve the sugar in the hot water and and add to the food processor.  Whizz for a couple of seconds.

4.  Pour the mixture into ice-pop cases and freeze.
