Sometimes simple really is the best! I made these ice blocks as I had some coconut milk left over from making us all a curry on Sunday and didn’t want to waste it. I will however be repeating these again as they are creamy, refreshing and quite delicious. For those of you trying to keep sugar to a minimum these are also refined sugar free.
Coconut milk is high in saturated fatty acids an easy source of energy, the main source is lauric acid. A fatty acid that helps fight against bacteria and viruses and also helps promote brain development. So in my books a pretty awesome afternoon snack to keep your little one full of energy.
