If summer were a flavour, it would surely be elderflower and strawberry. Elderflower and strawberries are a match made in heaven, two British summer classics. This ice lolly is sweet, fragrant, and easy to make, as with all my recipes. If you have made my elderflower cordial, it will not take you more than ten minutes to make these lollies. I'm sure you agree that they look gorgeous too.
The elderflower cordial used in this ice lolly recipe is made from foraged elderflowers. You can discover a little more about elderflower and how to identify it by heading on over to my elderflower cordial recipe.

These elderflower and strawberry ice lollies are so simple to make—just two ingredients.
First, slice the strawberries into slices 2mm or so in thickness.
Place two slices of strawberry into each mould compartment.
Pour the cordial into each compartment up to the level of the lolly stick hole.
Insert the lolly sticks.
Finally, place two more slices of strawberry on top of the lolly stick and fill up the remaining space in each mould with elderflower cordial. Freeze overnight.
You can also sprinkle a few elderflowers into the mould before freezing to make the lollies look prettier.
Here is a video guide to making elderflower and strawberry ice lollies.
You can use store-bought elderflower cordial if you cannot make your own.
Replace strawberries with any fruit of your choice. However, berries work best with elderflowers.
As with most of my recipes, you can use this as a base and add more flavours or textures. For example, you can add mint or even basil for more flavour.
Although any lolly mould will work, I prefer this silicon mould from amazon. I find it easier to remove the lollies, and it gives me scope to be creative.
You can store these lollies in the freezer for up to three months and keep the mould with the lollies in a silicon zip lock bag.
Add elderflowers to create a prettier lolly.
