Take the stalks off the strawberries, wash them then crush them on a plate with a fork.

Put the crushed strawberry into the bottom of each lolly mould so that it comes about a third of the way up the mould.

Step 2

Peel the mango.

Then cut the flesh from the stone.

Roughly mash the flesh with your fork.

Put the mango on top of the strawberry so the moulds are two-thirds full.

Step 3

Peel and crush the kiwi.

Then put it into the lolly moulds on top of the crushed mango - leave some room at the top of each mould as the fruit will take up more space when it freezes.

Step 4

Put a lolly stick through the middle of each fruity mixture.

Pop the moulds in the freezer and wait for your lollies to freeze.
