Wow, you've kind of made my day bhavana. the very thought of ice lollies have got me thinking and maybe i should get one for myself, before i write the recipe here :-). Anyways here goes - when i was a kid, i used to try this at home. Things you would need - 1 steel vessel, 1 litre of water, 4-5 table spoons of Rasna/Tang, 4 table spoons of sugar, a stirrer, a kitchen cloth (will tell the use of the cloth later), closed kitchen doors ;-). Steps: Pour the litre of water in the steel vessel, add rasna/tang, add sugar, stir them till they taste good. Add a spoon of glucon d as well - this would help in convincing your mom as to why you need to feast on this more regularly. :-)Once the potion is done, store this vessel in the freezer, till it becomes ice and voila - you have your very own lollies ready. coming to the cloth - you would need that to clean the kitchen, after the mayhem you would have created in the kitchen :-)these days i encourage my children to do the same, i find this safe, hygienic, and at the same time a fun exercise for children.

In the summer heat , this is a multi purpose activity .... you can engage the children into making the cool lollies and also make sure thay they are beating the heat ... i actually freeze lollies made out of Aam Panna ; Nimboo Paani and Glucon -d orange flavor ... that ways i have some flavour options and i go a step ahead and buy reallly crazy shaped ice trays so in our house the kids get star shaped nimpoo paani lolly and a flower shaped orange glucon d lollies... and i tell you it is soo much healthy fun ...

Wah Wah .... great flavors i can see... i thought i might add the one that is my favorite-- Watermelon + lemon + mint : my mom would make the juice , sieve it through a muslin cloth so all the pulp was taken out and then freeze it in small steel glasses with a spoon in them to hold once they were popped out....

I prepare popsicles for Devansh in a popsicle mould made of non toxic maleable plastic gifted to me by a relative... just add his favourite drink i. e. nimboo paani/roohafzaa/ orange glucon-D, and freeze it... started doing this as he's very fond of iced lollies and would always end up with a septic throat after consuming the stick lollies available in the market.
