And there is the simple joy of eating ice-cream as a child. For so long I put off making my own ice-cream as it was simply easier to buy it. But then I found these amazing icy pole moulds and since then we haven’t stopped making them! The best thing about making your own is that the kids are in fact eating smoothies and drinks filled with healthy ingredients. So  I honestly don’t mind if they have a few a day.

Want to join me? The hard part is working out which one to make first!
