We are still loving finding new ways in which we can work Vitasoy’s new Coconut Milk into our diets and this new recipe I’ve mixed up results in a deliciously creamy popsicle, without the guilt factor. Best thing is, these creamsicles don’t have that super-hard block of ice factor that can be hard to avoid when making home-made ice blocks. Kid approved by the way, so I’m sure this recipe will be on high rotation this summer!
1 x frozen banana slightly thawed
1 whole mango chopped
1 cup Vitasoy Coconut milk original
1 tsp raw sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend until smooth, freeze until set. Enjoy!
Vitasoy have been so kind as to send us some samples of their new Coconut Milk, so we have been busy recipe testing and finding ways in which we can incorporate this yummy, dairy-free milk option into our family diet. We have all switched to coconut milk at breakfast; we make Nixon’s porridge with it, Ethan and Dave have it with their cereal, I whip up my microwave eggs with it and Dave has it with his coffee. I’m not often organised enough to make smoothies in the morning before Ethan leaves for school, but I was sure he wouldn’t object to one for afternoon tea!
It’s getting close to summer and all of those luscious berries are getting cheaper and cheaper – I picked up 2 punnets of strawberries for $4 and used these as the base for this easy-peasy smoothie.
Makes 2 smoothies
1 cup Vitasoy Original Coconut Milk
1 frozen banana, semi-thawed
1 small punnet strawberries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Teaspoon of cacao powder and coconut to garnish
Throw it all in the blender, and ………….. you’re done!
Not rocket science, but it is delish. Nixie and E drank their entire servings and Ethan didn’t ask for food until dinner time – that’s a serious win!
