  • 1 tin Evaporated milk (410g)

  • Add food colouring a few drops at a time till the desired colour is achieved.
  • Decanter into moulds or reused yogurt pots and place in the freezer to set overnight.


TIP: Half set the lollies for roughly an hour before adding the lolly sticks, to ensure they stay upright and in place.  Before returning them back to the freezer to completely set overnight.
This milk ice lolly recipe is based on the recipe from Sharon Henry at Plantation Stables who kindly and generously showed me how she made hers. Ensuring that the tradition and love of these milky treats keep on going for sweet-tooths everywhere.
