Vanilla cream ice lolliesNow that several bank holidays have passed us and we have now probably all seen our fair share of pasty white british flesh, it appears summer is nearly in full throws.

Now I live in Scotland so sometimes summer has to be more of a state of mind rather than a temperature or weather status. Hence these lollies. I created them amidst the ‘heat wave’ hitting what felt like all the UK except Glasgow in order to get my ass out off moaning and into summery cheer! 

These kitsch rocket lollies (feel free to use whatever mould you have, I just love a good rocket lolly) are an ode to my mum’s homemade ice lollies which were slightly less nutritious (as they were just very very strong frozen ribena esq creations) than these naturally healthy wonders!

Not just your normal lolly….

Cashews – make it naturally creamy with no cream, are full of protein and because I soaked these first they are easy to digest and will help even the most unhappiest of gut’s.

Raw honey – full of enzymes and goodness, read here to find out more.

Goji berries – not just a hippy health food but these babies are jam packed with antioxidants being the highest source of carotenoids known,  are rich in 21 trace minerals, filled with vitamin B’s, help boost your immunity and they will help keep your heart help. (Feel free to use date, apricots, raisins, figs or other dried fruit in the recipe too as a cheaper option )

Creamy, dairy free ice lollies to satisfy those summer sun cravings!
Servings 4 lollies


  • 150 g Cashews - soaked
  • 2 tbsp Goji Berries
  • 2 tbsp Raw Honey
  • 2 pinches Salt
  • 1/2 Vanilla Pod seeds or 1tsp quality vanilla essence
  • 500 ml water
  • Dusting
  • 2 tbsp ground cacao nibs/raw caca powder/cocoa powder


  • Soak the cashews for about 1-4 hours then drain.
  • Cut the vanilla pod in half the spilt one half length ways and scrape it with a sharp knife to remove all the black vanilla seeds.
  • Blend all the ingredient except the goji berries (or whatever dried fruit you are using) until smooth. Taste the mixture and add more sweetness is desired.
  • Add the goji berries and pulse a few time if you want a speckled effect or blend until smooth if you want peachy looking lollies.
  • Pour into a lolly mould (most supermarkets sell them) and leave to set ideally overnight.
  • Once set run hot water over mould to loosen then dust the chocolate if you like and enjoy!


Feel free to use other dried fruit, choc chips, fresh fruit, coffee, or any other flavour you can imagine!
Got some mixture left over? Then just pour it into ice cube tray to add to smoothies for for a mini iced sweet treat whenever you fancy!
 What are your favourite iced creations? Did you used to have frozen juice for ice lollies too, or is that just me…?

If you didn't know already I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with coffee.   I love it, my gut and body historically have hated it. But all in all, I am a total coffee snob and fiend.   And there is nothing that screams Christmas more than a SEASONAL...
