Ice block season is here, and little kids (and big kids!) can appreciate the joys of cooling off on a hot summer afternoon with a delicious icy treat.
As store bought ones are loaded with sugar and food colouring, I’m a big fan of homemade ice blocks; they are much healthier, and you have complete control of what they are made with.
You can’t beat the classic strawberries and cream flavour, so these are sure to be a favourite. Better still, they are made using Locako Kids Collagen Strawberry Monkeyness, which is dairy-free and contains no added sugar or artificial sweeteners – it’s sweetened with natural Monk fruit and it has added magnesium, prebiotics and probiotics for happy, healthy tummies. This recipe is also free from artificial colours and flavours – I used Hopper natural food colouring for a bright pink colour.
Plus, they are super easy and fun for the kids to make themselves, with minimal mess and clean-up.
- 1 (400g) can full-fat coconut cream
- 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
- 8 teaspoons Locako Kids Collagen Strawberry Monkeyness
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Hopper Natural Food Colouring Pink
- Put all ingredients into a high-speed blender, blend until smooth and no bits are visible.
- Add one drop of Hopper Natural Pink Food Colouring at a time until desired colour is reached and then blend briefly to incorporate.
