What can I make lolipops out other than orange juice?

Have just bought some lolipop makers and was wondering what I could put in them?
Can I make flavoured milk ones? Would small pieces of fruit such as strawberies do well or would they just sink to the bottom?
Any ideas welcome

Smoothies make truly excellent ice lollies yum

oo thanks, they sound yum!

If you want to put fruit in, Angel Delight or fromage frais work well as they fruit doesn't sink straight to the bottom.

Agree with the smoothie suggestion too!

squash works fine too, but best if made just a little bit stronger

We sometimes used to do them with fromage frais (fruit ones). Kids loved them.

Half rhubarb purée half custard. Have to make them in 2 parts and wait till it freezes then add the (cooled) custard. Rhubarb is best at the top.

Greek yoghurt swirled with mashed raspberries and maple syrup (layer the ingredients and them swirl with a skewer before freezing)

This week I blended up 1 satsuma, a banana, some raspberries and milk. I filled 1/3 of the lolly mould with the liquid, added either a slice of banana or kiwi or a raspberry then more liquid then another piece of fruit and then more liquid. Yum.

Ribena and seconding smoothies - strawberries and bananas yummm, you could also give mini milks a go!

I sometimes thicken milk with corn flour and add pureed or mashed up berries. a little honey if too sour.
I also thicken juice for ice lollies - much less messy when eating.

A tub of ready made custard (the nice pale stuff)

I shamelessly nicked that idea from the Fay Ripley cookery book. Delish!

any juice
pureed fruit
