This is sweet and tangy with a subtle undercurrent of lime. The raspberry seeds haven't been strained out, but if you think your toddler will prefer a smooth, silky texture push the mixture through a fine sieve before sieving
Put the sugar, lime zest and 100ml of the water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved.
Put the raspberries in a food processor with the lime syrup and the remaining water and blend to a purée.
Add 2 tablespoons of the lime juice and taste to see if it’s sharp enough. If not, add a little more to achieve an equal balance of sweet and sharp.
Pour the mixture into your ice-lolly moulds, leaving 5mm at the top to allow the mixture to expand when it freezes.
Insert the lolly sticks and freeze.
