Ice Lollies {The Ordinary Moments}

LP has always had a sweet tooth and we try to mostly satisfy this with fruit although we do have biscuits and milk in the afternoons whilst watching a Disney movie on days when we’re at home.

The latest thing that LP loves, after chocolate biscuits, cake and anything else, is ice lollies. The warm weather over the last couple of months has meant we now have a constant supply of ice lollies in the freezer – Plain ice pops for Little Man and more exciting fruity lollies for LP – Her favourite being “Nee-owww-copter” ones – Rocket lollies, but she calls them helicopter lollies, slightly confused but oh so cute!

LP will have an ice lolly whenever she’s playing in the garden, it’s hot and she’s been good. They are the treat of all treats and something that she will do anything for. LP loves an ice lolly! They’ll also be a treat when we’re on a day out, when we think that ice cream will be too messy and LP usually prefers an ice lolly anyway.

Ice lollies are a regular thing for us, sunny days and ice lollies go hand in hand and often Hubby and I will reach for one too – A lemonade or cider lolly for me and whatever we have left for Hubby – He isn’t fussy! But even in winter we have the plain ice pops in the freezer if only to take the edge off a small child’s teething pain. Ice lollies can definitely be for medicinal purposes too. They definitely make everyone feel better!

    Harry has been enjoying lots of ice lollies recently too. I love how she calls the helicopter lollies and how she says it πŸ™‚ x

    We are big ice lolly fans in this house too. In fact as soon as Mads wakes up from her nap we have promised her one, so I shall be having one very shortly. If I could only eat one pudding it would be ice creams or ice lollies- so yummy. Mads had one of those old Strawberry splits the other day, do you remember them? They look like a lolly but with ice cream inside. It was at my friend’s and I have been desperate to find one for myself every since! x

    Ice lollies are definitely a summer must have accessory. My little man doesn’t really have a sweet tooth but is just starting to like ice lollies and ice cream, and we have to share because it takes him so long to eat it I need to catch all the dribbly bits. I’m not complaining!

    You could be describing D in this post – she is ice lolly mad too! Even woke us at 10pm last night when there was a thunderstorm, asking if she could have one because she was hot.

    I’ve just seen that Lakeland have an ice lolly maker in the shape of fish! How awesome is that πŸ™‚ Still can’t beat a rocket lolly for everyday ice lolly excitement though x

    Lately we have switched from ice-creams to ice-lollies, something about them thats rather addictive, especially in this heat!

    I have bought some little ice lolly moulds to make Baby some, as she has never had one (she has tried our ice cream) Lovely picture x

    I ADORE ice lollies, but M just shudders and shouts “coooold!” He does love ice cream though, especially when it’s a bit melted. In fact, convincing him that an ice cream every single day of the week is a little OTT is taking some doing!
    The photo is gorgeous x

    Hehe, helicopter lollies – that’s so funny πŸ™‚ I’ve just bought some baby ice-lolly moulds and frozen some fruit puree in them – Toby’s not tried one yet though so I don’t know what he’ll make of them!
