Christmas is a time for indulgence; it’s the perfect excuse to spoil yourself, not because you’ve achieved some life goal or worked your butt off for something, but just because, you know, “it’s Christmas!“.
Usually the recipes I experiment with use everyday ingredients on a real-life budget. It’s all about the practicality here at #ThisGirlEats. But, in the spirit of Christmas, I’m letting loose with some of my blogmas recipes and pushing the boat out to make something a little special for the festive season. 🍾
On that note, allow me to introduce you to these fruity prosecco ice lollies, perfect for your Christmas celebrations! 🥂
So, this is how I did it…
(Makes 4 lollies)
- Start by pouring yourself a glass of prosecco – that’s what I did, just for tasting purposes, obviously.
- Then pour whatever prosecco you have left into the ice lolly moulds, filling them about halfway up – don’t worry, we’re not skimping out on the prosecco here, I promise you there is a reason for this.
- Add to each one of the lolly moulds a teaspoon of sugar, at which point the prosecco will likely fizz up so maybe keep some kitchen towel close to hand. Once it’s calmed down, fill the moulds up with a little more prosecco, but leave a small gap at the top of mould so the lollies have room to expand as they freeze.
- Drop the fruit into the moulds and try your best to evenly distribute it (although we all know that none of us are here for the fruit, let’s be honest).
- Pop in the freezer for 24 hours and they should be nicely set into perfect prosecco lollies.
