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.
What ingredients do you need to make these sweet potato ice cream lollies?

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. I add it to pasta sauce or into macaroni cheese. This makes these dishes a little healthier and ensures that my children at least eat a little portion of vegetables every day!
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.
Frozen bananas make smoothies lovely and creamy or you can use them to make nice cream, the healthiest version of ice cream that you'll find. Alternatively make these healthy chocolate orange ice lollies (recipe below) or these banana, coconut and raspberry ice lollies.
