There was one time I was watching River Cottage by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall on the TV. There was one recipe which is called banana and lemon lollies which is simply banana and lemon juice pops on stick and super easy to make. To make the banana and lemon pops, we need to the blender to mix both lemon and banana together. Here is the extract of the recipe from Channel 4
- 3 large bananas
- Juice of 1 lemons
- 1 tbsp icing sugar
- Blend bananas with lemon juice and taste. If mixture requires sweetening, add icing sugar and blend.
- Pour into 8 small lolly moulds, add sticks, and freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
