These are amazing. And so incredibly simple. The kids have not always liked coconut cream-based ice blocks but these were demolished! Excellent to have for the hot weather coming up!


1 tin coconut cream

1 tin pineapple pieces

1 orange, rind removed

2 T rice malt syrup

Puree in a blender, pour into moulds and freeze! Enjoy!

Green Iron booster smoothie

This is a variation of an Iron smoothie a friend posted on Facebook recently. The pineapple adds a sweetness to this. You could also throw in a fresh date if you need more too. But I love pineapple and mint as a combination and this smoothie, with the zingy lemon and mellow spinach leaves is awesome. I was feeling very flat this afternoon and decided to make this and see if it would help. Guess what? It did!

Throw out the chocolate and pick up the green smoothie. Yes. Will have to listen to myself more often 😉 (Not that I really eat chocolate anymore but you get the gist…).

1 cup spinach

1/2 lemon

1 green apple

1/2 cup pineapple

handful fresh mint leaves

1 T sesame seeds

1 cup water

handful ice

Blend away.

It is rare that I enjoy smoothies. Especially green ones. I only post ones that I REALLY like and this is one of them 🙂
