Blackcurrant, Pear & Apple Lolly

Prep time: 5 mins plus freezing overnight

Serves: 4 people


300g fresh or thawed frozen blackcurrant

2 tsp caster sugar

200ml apple and pear juice

a lolly mould for four lollies

 * Blackcurrants used in this recipe were kindly provided by British Frozen Fruits


Place the blackcurrants and sugar into a pan and heat for a few minutes until the sugar dissolves and the fruit softens.

Sieve the blackcurrants to extract the liquid only, discarding the pulp.

Divide the juice into the bottom of the lolly moulds and place in the freezer for about an hour, or until the juice has nearly frozen solid.

Carefully pour the apple and pear juice on top to fill and return to the freezer for another hour at least, or until the lollies are completely frozen.
