Better with BRITA - Home Made Coconut Milk & Chocolate Iced Lollies

Now that the warm weather is finally with us, the kids may be pestering for ice creams and lollies, just as mine are. I've filled up a freezer drawer with cheap supermarket lollies ready for when the ice cream van plays his music & the kids line up with all their friends.

These chocolate lollies are much healthier than any you would find in the supermarket and don't contain any added sugar (obviously that would be without the chocolate and sprinkles they've been dipped in), and are made from just 3 ingredients, plus BRITA filtered water.

You can use ready made coconut milk, but if you make your own you know exactly what's gone into it. It's really easy to make, as long as you have a high powered blender. You can then use the milk on cereal and in drinks, or of course you can make your own iced lollies.

No Added Sugar Chocolate Lollies

No Added Sugar Chocolate Lollies - makes 6 

150g shredded coconut (unsweetened)
500ml BRITA filtered water, boiled*
2 small bananas
2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • Add the coconut to a bowl and pour over the boiling water
  • Allow to cool
  • Blend with a powerful blender (I use a Nutribullet), for approx 1 minute
  • Strain through a fine sieve until all the milk has come out of the coconut (use the remaining coconut in flapjacks)
  • You should have around 200ml of creamy coconut milk - you can repeat the process, however the second batch won't be as creamy
  • Blend the coconut milk with the bananas and cocoa powder until fully combined and smooth
  • Pour into lolly moulds and place in the freezer until completely solid


Enjoy!
