Strawberry and Balsamic lollies
- 400g strawberries, sliced
- 150g brown sugar
- 125ml (½ cup) water
- 30ml (2 tbsp) balsamic vinegar
- 15ml (1 tbsp) fresh lemon juice
In a bowl, combine the strawberries and sugar. Mix well and let it sit, 15 minutes. Place in a pot over medium heat with the water and let it simmer until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a blender or food processor, blitz the strawberry mixture, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice until smooth.
Divide the mixture among the moulds and freeze, 5 – 7 hours.
