Chef Profile: Lickalix, easy to make healthy treats / ice lollies
Now I’m not a very summery person and actually have a hatred for summer (crazy right?) but one thing I often miss is all the delicious food, mainly ice lollies, the superior form of any summer snack or even dessert. Alas winter is coming and the time for ice lollies to draw a close—OR SO YOU THOUGHT! Introducing Lickalix a company solely based on making natural and healthy ice lollies.
Founded by Karis and Dominic, Lickalix started out with Karis making healthy treats in the form of lollies for her friends and family. It wasn’t long until the pair spotted a gap in the market for natural and healthy ice lollies that were made with real whole fruit. Their mission now is to offer a healthier alternative in your freezer that not only tastes great, but is also free of allergens and kind to the environment.

You won’t even have to worry about allergens, refined sugar content or artificial colourings. It’s a super easy and fun activity to do with your friends and family so why not give it a go? Below are a few of the lollies you’ll be able to make with the Plate Up app!
Delicious Oh So Berry Ice Lolly
This simple recipe means you can always have a healthy snack in the freezer. Also a perfect snack for people on the go. You can literally taste the freshness from this ice lolly. Fun fact: strawberries are not berries... but a banana is! But we used strawberries in these anyway as well as blueberries and raspberries. The tangy flavour you often get with these fruits are sweetened out by natural cane sugar, which is made directly from sugar canes making it less processed.
Simple Watermelon and Kiwi Ice Block
A frozen slice of watermelon with a Kiwi twist. Perfect for a healthy treat! Watermelon is a great way to keep yourself hydrated since they are 92% water! If you’re finding it difficult to stay hydrated, these lollies are an awesome way to maintain a healthy daily water intake. Tip: How much sugar you need depends on how ripe the fruit is; the riper they are the less sugar you’ll need. These lollies much like the previous are made with whole fruit which makes Lickalix so special. That’s why it’s such a bonus to create them yourself, you don’t have to worry about weird ingredients or food colourings because every ingredient you use is within your grasp!
Convenient Berry Yoghurt Swirls - On a Stick!
Ever wanted to have a lolly for breakfast? This healthy breakfast alternative is the perfect excuse to do just that. and have breakfast on the go! Shake it up with this ice lolly as this one uses natural yoghurt as a sweetener. If you’re a fan of strawberries and cream then the flavour of this is not too far off, though unlike using cream you’ll get 0% of the guilt. It looks absolutely amazing and definitely instagrammable too. Give it a try and you’ll find that you’ll be making this again and again because it really is that easy!
