The kids loved these healthy chocolate ice lollies
These healthy homemade ice lollies were a HUGE hit with my kids.
All three of them absolutely devoured them, didn't notice that they weren't ordinary ice lollies, couldn't detect the sweet potato and asked me to make more.
With just four ingredients, a healthy portion of hidden vegetables and no added sugar what's not to like?
If you're looking for a summery hidden vegetable recipe for picky eaters then this is for you.
How else can you use sweet potato purée?
Sweet potato purée is such a useful ingredient to have in your freezer
I usually have some sweet potato purée frozen in little pots or ice cube trays.
Using up brown bananas
If you have bananas that are going brown in the fruit bowl but don't have time to make banana bread then slicing them and freezing them is a great idea.

Lolly or popsicle?
Lollies and popsicles are essentially the same thing. Here in the UK we call them ice lollies. In the US the term popsicle is more common.
