Homemade Ice-lolly (Moulds)
Making homemade ice-lollies was always a favourite past time of mine when growing up. It's so simple to do and involves very few ingredients; a tub of natural yoghurt and some delicious fresh fruit and you're well on your way. They're also really nutritious and fun to make – win, win! And, Jamie Oliver has some simple instructions for you, here.
Blender and/or juicer
If you're conscious about eating well and love fresh fruit juices and smoothies, then it's a great idea to invest in your own appliance. There's so many compact and easy-to-use models available these days, that storage and accessibility aren't really an issue anymore. Once again, it's also a really fun way to get the kids involved as they can get creative with their own recipes and concoctions!
During the summer, after a long hot day the last thing I want to eat is something heavy, such as pasta or potatoes. The hot weather makes me crave something fresh, light and tasty! A vegetable spiralizer is a great accessory for making salads and recreating pasta dishes using vegetable spaghetti – perfect if you're hankering after your favourite pasta dish but don't want anything too filling!
