Bring the ice cream van indoors and chill out with our guide to cheap icy treats – The Sun

LONGING for the magical tune of the ice-cream van?

Me too. But just because we can’t chill in the park with a 99 does not mean we can’t enjoy an icy treat in the garden. And the good news is there are cool savings to be had at the moment . . .

Jerry good: Most of us wouldn’t say no to a tub of Ben & Jerry’s. Head to Tesco, where Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Cookie Dough flavours are £2.50, down from £4.50 each.


A little less lolly: If you (or the kids) are more partial to a fruit flavoured lolly when things get hot, it is worth checking out the selection on offer at Asda. You can mix and match two boxes for £3 of popular varieties such as Twisters, Calippos and Fabs (usually around £2 a box).

SAVING: £1 on two boxes

Yo need to try this: If you have any yoghurt, such as Greek or natural, in the fridge you can whip up your own version of the popular, lower calorie “froyo”. Mix in some honey or syrup to make it scoopable once frozen and some blended fruits, then pop it into the freezer overnight. Once it is set, you can go to town with toppings such as Nutella, nuts or chocolate chips.

Going bananas: I don’t know about you, but I’ve jumped on the banana bread-baking bandwagon during lockdown — and it is a great way to use up overripe fruit. But my new passion is banana ice cream. It is super-simple, reduces waste and is a healthy alternative to diving into a soft scoop. Simply chop your banana into chunks and freeze for at least an hour. Put them into a blender and whizz until smooth. You can get creative with extras such as peanut butter or syrups and add toppings such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips or fruit.

SUE MURRELL, from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorks, says: “When you buy fresh cut tulips, always use a pin to prick just below the bud – the stems will stand up straight for twice as long.”
