Icy poles on a hot day, what could be better? Well, icy poles that didn't drip all over your children's (invariably white) t-shirts of course. These icy poles are easy, yummy and really do live up to their claims.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Freezing Time: At least 6 hours
Makes: Depends on the size of your icy pole moulds. Mine make four.
Ingredients One 1.25 litre bottle of Creamy Soda (or alternative. I usually use cordial)
Two tsp. edible gelatine powder.
Measure 250ml creamy soda in a microwave proof jug. Heat in the microwave until hot.
Add the gelatine and stir until completely dissolved and no lumps and granules remain. You can see from the photo that the liquid becomes quite cloudy.
Top up to 500mls with the remaining creamy soda.
Pour into your moulds, put the sticks in and put in the freezer for at least 6 hours (no peeking).
Enjoy. It's the gelatine that keeps things from dripping everywhere. Experiment with any flavours that suit you. Sometimes I even drop frozen berries in just to jazz things up a bit.
