These are really quick and easy to make when the sun is shining, and they are ideal for all the family. The ingredients are natural, and the lollies do not contain any processed sugar. Agave nectar comes from a cactus, and it is a healthier alternative to sugar – it can be found in most supermarkets nowadays. You can use whatever berries take your fancy, but remember to try the fruit purée first – the amount of the agave nectar that you will need to use will depend upon the sharpness of the fruit that you use.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Freeze Time: several hours
- Approximately 400g of raspberries
- 160ml of organic coconut cream
- 2-3 tbsp of agave nectar
- In a food processor, blitz the fruit with one tablespoon of the agave nectar until it is smooth. Try a little to check if it’s sweet enough, and if not add a little extra. Pour the purée a third of the way up into the lolly moulds and freeze them.
- Once frozen, mix the rest of the agave nectar in with the coconut cream, and pour it in to the top of the moulds before returning them back to the freezer to continue freezing for several hours.
- When you want to eat them, remove them from the freezer and leave for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly before tucking in!
About the Chef
I am a very keen ‘foodie’ who loves to cook and experiment in producing ‘clean’, healthy food. My aim is to inspire you to cook my nutritious and tasty recipes which are all gluten dairy and processed sugar free. Occasionally I may use a little butter but predominantly my recipes are based around coconut oil.
I entered the fitness industry 10 years ago and from then nutrition became one of my main interests. A healthy balance is key and one of my biggest aims is to try to encourage my clients to eat less sugar and processed food without thinking they are being hard done by!
We all lead a hectic lifestyle in one way or another and planning meals is often at the bottom of the agenda for busy people. I have 3 young children aged 9, 7 and 5 so I am very aware how challenging it can be to get fussy children to try something let alone eat a whole portion! I try to keep my recipes as straightforward as possible as time is a key factor when preparing meals.
I would love to hear from you if there are any of your favourite recipes which I can adapt to cover the ‘healthy take’ and I will happily respond. I plan to share all my top tips and a variety of recipes suitable for all the family.
