    Thanks for that, Pretz. Sounds like a decent alternative to ice cream for my dgd who has a cow's milk allergy. In fact, it sounds good for all my grandkids - SmartPrice bananas, here I come!

    It does make tasty 'lollies' but you need to make sure that the bananas you use are fairly ripe. I tried it with some slightly under-ripe ones and they were horrible, really bitter and not nice.

    I've tried freezing Muller Vitality yoghurt drinks today... they weren't TOO bad, but let's just say I prefer them in their original format ;)

    I'd really like to make one that tastes just like a vanilla 'mini milk' lolly, I guess I'll try the Angel Delight method :)

    I got my new Lakeland catalogue this week and noticed they've got Rocket Lolly moulds! I'd love some but they're a bit on the expensive side at £9.99, I'll just have to stick to my £1 poundstretcher set!

    I saw a set of 4 moulds in MrS the other day, for £1-49. They had the little straw attachment on the stick to catch the drips & let [STRIKE]you[/STRIKE] the kiddies drink them:p

    I'm thinking of getting them--at the time I thought they were too small, but now realise they would be ideal for portion control for those watching their figure!

    They sound the same as the ones I have from M&S, BigMumma. They're not as small as they seem... I bought two sets so that we can always have some on the go :D

    Just waiting for the current batch to be finished then I'm going to try a batch using Sainsburys Supreme Dessert (vanilla).

    I remember choosing between walkling home with a frozen jubbly on a very hot summers day, or getting the bus for the two mile trip which cost 3d(1 1/2p) in those days Jubblies won everytime circa 1956.I can't believe it was over 50 years ago Doesn't time fly when your enjoying yourself:j

    OK - verdict on Sainsburys supreme dessert vanilla lollies...

    Best HM lollies I've ever tasted :D Very similar to the vanilla mini milks that I love!

    Now I have to make sure I stop after having just the one... :p

    Hopefully, I'll be spending a bit of time in MrA on Sunday....& was thinking of getting the imfamous 3p dessert whip to try as lollies.

    We don't eat these types of thing as a rule, so do you think they'll pass muster as HM mini-milk:confused:
