Last summer we challenged our services to share their perfect iced lolly recipe - and now we'd like to share them with you! #NHWeek





  • 1 sachet of Kenco Salted Caramel Iced Coffee

  • 200ml water

  • 100ml cream

  • 2 tablespoons toffee sauce



  • Make up the sachet with water and the cream

  • Add toffee sauce and stir well so there are no powder clumps

  • Add the mixture to your lolly moulds and freeze

  • If you have trouble getting your lollies out. Run the mould under a hot tap until you can get them out.

  • ENJOY!


Usma made 2 Ice Lollies. In her first one she had banana, water melon and strawberry yoghurt. Her second lolly had smarties and strawberry milkshake in it.


Usmair's lolly had strawberry, mango, smarties and strawberry milkshake in it. His second had smarties, strawberries, kiwi and it was topped off with lemonade to set it.


Henry had mango, banana, strawberry and to set the lolly, it was topped up with strawberry milkshake. His second lolly was a classic combination of blueberries and orange juice.


Adam had a 5 lots of different fruit in both of his lollies. Strawberries, banana, kiwi, mango and blueberries. One lolly was set with lemonade and the other was set with orange juice. Very refreshing!


For Thomas, simplicity was best for one of his lollies, which was pure orange juice. No one can argue with a classic! His second lolly was strawberry, blueberry and oranges, set with lemonade.


Junaid had a light and refreshing lolly made from strawberries and lemonade, followed by her second lolly of oranges in orange juice. Very juicy!


Asmin joined Junaid in having strawberries and lemonade but for the second lolly had oranges with a mixture of both lemonade and orange juice.



 Why is hydration so important?

• Good hydration helps everything in your body work better. For example, drinking enough water can help prevent constipation and urine infections, and can even prevent people feeling confused and falling over.

• If you're worried about having to go to the toilet too often, or you're living with incontinence, restricting your fluid isn't a good idea.  Strange as it sounds, it might even make things worse.

• If you are caring for someone, make sure drinks are available all the time and support them to drink if they need it.



  • Everyone should aim to drink about 6-8 glasses of fluid each day. This can be from a variety of drinks, hot or cold, caffeinated or decaffeinated, but alcoholic drinks don’t count.
  • If you don't feel hungry, you might also want to choose some drinks that provide energy and nutrients, such as lemon or mint in water or having milky drinks as these are a good source of calcium, iodine, B vitamins and protein.
