Mango and passion fruit ice lollies (Sugar free)

When we were on holiday my daughter had her first taste of ice cream. She wanted more! As she’s not even one yet I wasn’t keen for her to have too much because of the sugar content. Most ice creams contain 21% sugar with some as high as 26%. Once home I decided to try…
