Summer might be over but ice lollies are a great family fun project all year round (especially over the holidays) and can be made using real fruit and yoghurt to make healthier alternative frozen treats!
Cool Create Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker
We were sent this Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker for the purposes of this review. My kids adore yoghurt and love a good lolly at any time of year, so this was a fun twist on a favourite staple!
What’s in the box?
- 1 x Mr Frosty mould
- 1 x Igloo and drying station
- 6 x ski poles sticks
You do not get any of the ingredients needed to make this. You will need some yoghurt and chocolate to make a basic penguin ice lolly. Optional ingredients include chopped nuts, cake toppers like sprinkles or gold nuggets, and real fruit pieces – freeze-dried fruit would be ideal for this.

Make sure they’re full up by giving them a gentle shake from time to time to try to get any bubbles to pop and get more yoghurt in. We used fromage frais, which was easier for the boys to scoop, but you can use any yoghurt you like.
When the moulds are full, you pop the mould tray into the freezer for at least 3 hours.
Get outside and play!
Ready to eat!
When the yoghurt is frozen, you can move on to the next stage: eating! The igloo becomes a little microwaveable bowl, so break some chocolate up and place it in the bowl.
After careful heating, the chocolate will be hot, so make sure the kids know not to touch it with their fingers. They need to dip the ice lollies into the chocolate to coat the outside, then dip into toppings before eating and enjoying!
