(vegan, no refined sugar, dairy-free)
Summer seems to be finally upon us and for me one the best thing of the warmer months is ice cream! :-) There is nothing better than a cold and sweet treat during a sunny afternoon. Unfortunately most of the shop bought one seem to be filled with the sugar and weird chemicals or preservatives. That’s why I always love to make my own. This flavour is one of my favourite, you can never go wrong with banana and strawberries! These are great to make in advance and keep in the freezer to enjoy whenever you crave something sweet or they are also great as a healthy and easy dessert.
Ingredients – makes about 6-7 lollies :
1 frozen banana
1/3 cup of raw cashews
½ cup of almond milk – or any other creamy non dairy milk like coconut, cashew or hazelnut
2 tablespoon of coconut yogurt – you can substitute it with coconut cream
3 tablespoon of Love Arctic Organic Lingonberry powder
½ cup of frozen mixed strawberries and raspberries
A dash of vanilla extract
To make the ice lollies just add the banana into a blender and add all the remaining ingredients. Blend for a minute or so until you have a creamy and completely smooth consistency. If your blender is struggle just add a bit more almond milk.
To assemble the ice lollies: Fill up some ice lolly moulds with the pink mixture. Place the ice lollies to set in the freezer for at least 8 hours or overnight.
To pop the ice lollies out of the mould just place the under some warm water and enjoy!
Store them in the freezer for a couple of weeks.
The ice lolly mixture is also great on its own (before freezing) as a super creamy “yogurt” or you can drink it as a smoothie, just add more almond milk to make it thinner.
