Frozen fruity deserts are the best on hot summer days and nights. These are perfect to serve at a dinner party or as an alternative for your kids as a icy treat rather than something pumped with artificial colours and flavours. Proof that sweet doesn’t have to be crazy-making for the little ones!

1 1/2 cups almonds

1/4 cup cacao powder

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Dash of water if needed

3 punnets stawberries

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons coconut oil
