Fruit is so amazingly sweet at the moment that when I made these I didn’t need to add anything to the fruit puree (I decided to use fruit puree instead of juice so you get all the goodness from the fruit – more on that later!) If your fruit happens to be a little less sweet you can always add a little sweetener, like agave nectar or honey to improve the taste.

The real beauty of these lollies (other than the simply stunning colours) is that they are so much healthier than the sugar/chemical alternatives. Plus once I’d figured out the layering they’re super easy to make.

The knack to getting the layers, I have discovered, is to chop and freeze the fruit first. When I first tried I simply pureed the fruit and layered them into the moulds. The result was a beautiful marbled effect. It looked really lovely but I wanted the defined sections of the original.

I couldn’t freeze one layer at a time as the stick goes a long way down so I chopped and froze the fruit overnight first.  (For the oranges I cut off the peel and then use a sharp knife to cut out the segments. This way you still get loads of fibre but not too much pith.)

Remove from the freezer 30-45 mins before blending and make sure the fruit puree, whilst still cold, is just running enough to pour into the moulds. Also it really helps to place the lollies in the freezer for 15 mins between each layer. This way you get the distinct layers Rocket lollies are famous for.

Hot tip on these is that running them under the hot tap for a few seconds really does make them easier to get out.
