3 Ingredient Coconut and Strawberry Frozen Treats (Dairy Free)

When Squidge was born we had real issues with weight gain - it turned out she had not only reflux but a milk, soy and egg allergy (also fish and raisins didn't agree) - as she was fed breast milk (I won't say breastfed, but that is a story for another day) I had to avoid all these foods/ingredients as it fed through to her.  Also, when she was weaning we still had to avoid all these foods, luckily though she has grown out them.

Now, I don't know about you but I love a nice cool ice cream or ice cream ice lolly to cool down but I had to avoid these or buy allergy friendly which to be honest is quite expensive.  So I came up with these frozen coconut and strawberry frozen treats (you could substitute the strawberries for other fruit - it would work just as well I imagine!).

The ingredient list is so short and the process so quick (well apart from the freezing...that takes a little while!):







Ingredients:
  • Tin of coconut milk, I use light but full fat would also work
  • Large handful of strawberries (you can sub for other fruit)
  • 2 Tbsp Agave nectar (Again, you can sub for honey if your baby/child is over 1 or they are for you! or golden syrup/maple syrup would work if you already have it in and would  like it sweeter) as these are not teeth tingling sweet, just a hint.



Method:

  1. Shake can of coconut milk and put into jug or bowl. 
  2. Mix in Agave nectar.
  3. chop strawberries quite small or pulse in food processor - you don't want a liquid-y puree but very fine so there are still little lumps of strawberry and then mix into coconut milk and Agave syrup mix.
  4. Pour into Ice lolly mould and freeze - I usually leave for at least 8 hours, over night is best. 
  5. ENJOY! 




What cool summer treats do you enjoy??
