  • 500g strawberries, hulled and halved lengthways
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 75ml Pimm’s
  • 200ml lemonade
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 20 thin slices of cucumber, cut into quarters


  1. Put the strawberries and mint leaves in a blender and process until smooth. Pour the strawberry mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Add the Pimm’s, lemonade and sugar, stirring together until combined and the sugar is dissolved.

  2. Divide the cucumber pieces between a 10 x 80ml ice lolly mould (see below for where to buy) and pour over the strawberry mixture, dividing equally between the cavities. Put the mould in the freezer and chill for 30-45 mins or until just starting to freeze. Insert lolly sticks (see below for where to buy) and leave to freeze for at least 4 hrs or until frozen solid.

  3. To remove the ice lollies, dip the mould in hot water for a few seconds, then carefully remove the lollies to serve.

We've all just enjoyed one of these each. Delicious. I've just be 'ordered' to make some more.

We really liked these. All the flavours of Pimms in an ice lolly! Really easy to make and using the fresh strawberries made it really special. Would be great for a party.

Can I skip the sugar from this recipe?

Hi, yes you can, the texture will be a little less smooth and the flavour might be stronger. Lulu

Hi there, we haven't tested this recipe without the sugar so can't vouch for the results. It will be less sweet of course. If you think you'll be happy with this, then you could make up the mixture without the sugar and try it before moving on to the next step to see if you like it. Of course there'll still be some sweetness from the lemonade and fruit. Let us know how you get on if you decide to give it a try.
