Ice lollies, also known as ice pops, are a staple of summertime cuisine, accidentally invented in 1905 by Frank Epperson. These frozen treats come in an almost endless variety of flavors and textures, and may contain chunks of fruit or even candy. Because these snacks are immensely popular, ice pop molds are available for purchase at most major grocery stores, which allow you to create your own ice lollies at home with your favorite ingredients.


Combine one cup seltzer water with 1/4 cup of your favorite flavored syrup. If desired, you may make your own simple syrup by adding a few drops of artificial flavor to water and boiling on the stove; removing from heat and stirring in sugar until the sugar to water ration is equal. Set aside. http://www.ehow.com/how_8431804_make-ice-lollies.html#ixzz2PTu6aYpX


Mix 3/4 cup of sweetened fruit juice with 3/4 cup finely chopped fresh or frozen fruit. Try orange juice with peach or mango chunks, apple juice with berries or pineapple juice with coconut. Stir well and set aside.


Stir together 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup of juice for a creamy ice lolly mixture. Alternatively, you may wish to make creamy frozen yogurt lollies by mixing one cup juice and 1/4 cup yogurt, or sweet cream lollies by mixing 3/4 cup of milk with 3/4 cup of pudding.


Pour your three ice lolly mixes into an ice pop mold. Each mixture should yield two to three lollies. Place the tops on your ice pop mold and set on a level surface in your freezer. Make sure your freezer is set to below 32 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure proper freezing.


Let your ice lollies chill overnight before removing from the freezer. Before serving set the bottom of the ice pop mold in a bowl of warm water for a few seconds, or run it under hot tap water. This will loosen the lollies and allow them to slide easily out of the mold.
