Dairy Free Ice Blocks – Coconut Mango and Pine Lime ‘Splice’

* Brought to you by NuLac Foods.

Nothing says summer to me like a freezer full of ice blocks. We love our ice blocks in this house, and experiment with lots of different flavours. As the Stuntman and I are dairy free we generally miss out on the creamier types of ice blocks, but I’ve been experimenting with the new No Udder Coconut Yoghurt to come up with some dairy free ice blocks that are a bit more decadent – Mango Coconut, and my take on a Pine Lime Splice.

Both of these flavour combos are divine! You can’t even tell that they’re dairy free ice blocks. So rich and creamy and YUM! But also full of healthy ingredients – win win!

Please note, all measurements are approximate, just keep adjusting the quantities until you get a flavour balance you like. I used fresh fruit, but you could even use a tin of mango slices or pineapple chunks if you wanted to (just be aware that tinned fruit would increase the sugar content).

Method

Blitz your ingredients using a stick mixer or a blender, pour into your ice block moulds and then freeze for at least four hours. That’s it! So easy, and so delicious!

 

You could try mixing it up a bit with the flavours – add in some mint with the pine lime one, or a few tablespoons of fresh orange juice to the mango one. I’m thinking a bit of Malibu would be a very welcome addition too ;).

The No Udder yoghurt range has no added colours, flavours or preservatives, and comes in Coconut and Almond flavours. The Coconut one is thick and creamy, and the Almond flavour is runnier, more like a pouring yoghurt. Both are also a great addition to dairy free smoothies for an extra protein hit!

No Udder Coconut Yoghurt is very thick, but is not as rich as some other coconut yoghurt brands, and feels lighter in your mouth. It is quite sweet to taste and both my kids love it, even the dairy-addict! I put it in reusable pouches for the Stuntman so he can have a ‘squeezie’ when the other kids at kindy have a yoghurt pouch – it’s great that he doesn’t have to miss out.

Please be aware that while the raw ingredients in the No Udder coconut yoghurt are dairy free, it is processed in the same plant as cow and goat dairy products so is not suitable for people with a dairy allergy due to the risk of cross-contamination.

No Udder yoghurt is available at Coles and retails for around $6 for a 400g tub.
