    frozen bananas have the same sort of texture as a mini milk.

    just peel, wrap in food wrap or pop in a sandwich bag and then freeze.

    Have some in the freezer at the moment, not very OS I know but very low in calories - 28 to 30 each depending on flavour
    Its nice to be important but more important to be nice!

    I've made lollies by freezing Angel Delight (own-brand versions of it) and they're lovely. Can snap easily though if you use skinny lolly moulds, coz of the bubbly texture, but use the chunkier lolly makers and they're fine. The chocolate ones are my favourites!

    sounds lovely!

    think mr tescos is deliberately hiding them from me

    Try these:

    Raspberry & Strawberry Milky Lolly
    Serves 4

    * 16 x Raspberries (80g)
    * 10x Strawberries (150g)
    * 100ml Natural Low Fat Bio Yoghurt
    * 100ml Semi Skimmed Milk

    1. Slice up the fruit.
    2. Throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth.
    3. Divide into 4 lolly makers and freeze over night

    Banana & Chocolate Lolly
    Serves 4

    * 2 Medium Bananas
    * 3 Tbsp Natural Low Fat Bio Yogurt
    * 6 Drops of Vanilla Extract (Optional)
    * 60g Dairy Milk Chocolate
    * 2 Tbsp Semi Skimmed Milk

    1. Chop the Banana.
    2. Put the chopped banana, yoghurt and vanilla extract into the blender and blend till smooth.
    3. Divide the mix from the blender equally into 4 lolly makers and pop in the fridge.
    4. Break the chocolate up into pieces and put it in a glass bowl with the milk.
    5. Half fill a pan with water and heat it up on the hob so it boils.
    6. Now place the bowl with the chocolate in over the water and continuously stir it so the chocolate blend together.
    7. When you have a good melted chocolate mixture take the bowl off of the water (mind the steam) and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes at room temperature.
    8. Now top up the lolly makers with the chocolate mixture and freeze over night

    I love mini milks, they take me right back to childhood. But does anyone know of a supermarket that sells multipacks of mini milks which don't include the chocolate or strawberry ones ? Just the plain old original mini milks.....my local Tescos only sell the assorted flavours......

    i got my lolly mould in somerfield. makes 8 lolly and it was 99p. i bought it a couple weeks ago and they had loads ( isle of wight store ) they make nice chunky lollys aswell. gonna try the angel delight as my daugther loves the mini milks. i buy morrisons own for 79p for 10 i think. but i always love saving money. and making my own gives more satisfaction.

    Does anyone know how to make homemade mini milks without ice crystals forming in them? Tried freezing milkshake and it tastes ok but is full of crystals, not smooth like the shop ones

    Minimilks taste like they're made from UHT milk/cream.

    Maybe that will make a difference to the texture?

    The quick speed of freezing in commercial production contributes greatly to the texture and stops the ice crystals.
    I find yogurts (especially petit filous) work better to create a mini milk texture. Plain natural yogurt with blended fruit mixed in would be delicious I reckon.

    I used to freeze angel delight (own brand though) when the Vallikids were younger - already been mentioned, but worth reiterating IMO
