Have you indulged in the delicious taste of ice-lollies before? Well if not, then it is definitely worth giving it a try, especially if you are watching your weight and are trying to cut down on your intake of calories.

Ice-lollies are great to have as either a snack or dessert, that is – if you cannot do without having a snack or dessert!

Make your own ice-lollies

Make your very own ice-lollies by adding a few small pieces of fruit to some healthy plain yoghurt. Place into a mould and push a clean ice-cream stick through before freezing. You can experiment with which fruits to add, although berries tend to be a common favourite amongst most people. They also help to satisfy the craving if you tend to have a sweet tooth. So give it a try and enjoy keeping the calories down!

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietician if you require assistance in putting a meal plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
