I was inspired by the Caribbean and pirates to make this summer lolly. The dairy yoghurt symbolised ‘Europe’, the journey the Pirates came from, and ginger beer and bananas from the Caribbean. My father gave me some real ‘pirate treasure’ once and this ice lolly gives me memories of him too. The chocolate ‘coin’ is for the ‘treasure’. So, it was quite a fun one to make.
A chocolate coin (without the metal wrapping)
Optional: yellow food colouring (it can be a bit strong, so watch out)
Use an ice lolly mould (use more if you want to share). Store them in the freezer when you need them.
Mix the ingredients and add the chocolate coin afterwards and put in the freezer for a few hours.
REVIEW: 9/10 I probably used too much ginger beer (just go easy) which can make it a bit watery, but if you use less and mix the yoghurt and honey well, it will turn out very nice. The ginger beer really gives its Caribbean magic.
PS Hello to the Jamaican’s reading things (I am a huge fan of ginger too)
