Super Power Ice Block Lolly : LCHF Summer Snack : Full Of Goodness


These 'Super Power Ice Blocks' are full of goodness and just perfect for a LCHF Summer Snack! The grand-children (aged 4 - 12 years) love 'snacks' like these, but I'm sure even younger children would like them to! They can even be poured into ice cube trays, frozen and added to smoothies, which our daughter-in-law loves too.

INGREDIENTS:
Serves 12
250ml/ 8.5fl.oz unsweetened yoghurt
250ml/ 8.5fl.oz coconut cream
100g/ 3.5oz frozen or fresh berries
30g/ 1oz cocoa powder
75g/ 2.6oz silverbeet/spinach chopped
2 (5ml) teaspoons chia seeds
100ml/ 3.4fl.oz full fat milk
1 (15ml) tbs granulated stevia (or sweetener of choice) to taste

NOTES:
This makes a LARGE volume, you can make a smaller volume if you wish and adjust the ingredients accordingly.
You can also drink this as a smoothie instead of freezing.

That was sounding good until the Spinach. Popeye, five-a-day tales of eating helthy cut no ice with my two girls I'm afraid. they will eat petis-pois soemtimes but only under protest. Nice try though Jan.

Thanks Sara, and pleased you also saw my reply to your query on the cucumbers in a previous post here http://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/chicken-caesar-salad-with-red-grapes.html

These two love being out-doors and this summer have discovered the delight of tennis, they are enjoying it.

They also love a fresh fruit type ice block / lolly and this recipe allows you to adjust it, as appropriate, to suit tastes.

Enjoy your weekend

All the best Jan

Hello Phil
Well good to hear they will eat petis pois !

It is very often difficult to encourage children (sometimes adults) to eat vegetables. I find recipes like this which 'hide' some inner goodness can be successful.

The secret is to keep trying and just introduce one new flavour / taste at a time. It may not happen instantly but is well worth trying.

Libby has a great series of posts about that here http://www.ditchthecarbs.com/kids/

Wishing you and the family a great weekend

All the best Jan

Your grandchildren are so cute. How lucky they are to enjoy such a delicious and healthy treat. Thank you for the recipe. Have a good weekend.

Jo said...

What a fabulous photo of your two little tennis playing cuties. Those healthy lollies look great, a good alternative to those packed full of junk.

Debbie said...

Hello Mildred, and many thanks for your comment.
These two thoroughly enjoyed their tennis morning.
They do enjoy these type of snacks, and the joy of this recipe is it can be adapted to suit favourite tastes, it also works well as a smoothie too!

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.

All the best Jan

how cute are they!! yummy treats for them!

Lowcarb team member said...

Jo ... these lolly's are a great alternative to those readily available in shops which can contain so much sugar, and not much in nutrient goodness!
It's always lovely to see the grand-children out and about enjoying themselves.

Many thanks for your comment - have a lovely weekend

All the best Jan

Lowcarb team member said...

Best wishes to you and hubs - enjoy your weekend

All the best Jan

I enjoy seeing pictures of your grandchildren, Jan. They are adorable, and I look forward to having some of my own. Jess has to marry first (one step at a time, Sheri). :)
