How to make Donna Hay’s healthy summer popsicles

Let’s face it: everyone loves a summer-time ice cream. There’s nothing quite like the race to finish a melting cone to get you smiling like a kid again. But as we all know, anything that tastes that good is rarely good for us and although one part ‘ice’, we can’t forget the second component to this summer treat – cream. For a healthy alternative, we love making Donna Hay’s raspberry pops as they provide just as many smiles with a lot less guilt.
