6 ice cream on a stick moulds
2 kiwi fruits
300 ml of coconut milk
5 tablespoons chia seeds
3 tablespoons agave syrup
Stir the coconut milk, chia seed and agave syrup together in a bowl until smooth. Peel the kiwis, cut them into slices and lay them into the moulds. Pour in the coconut-chia mixture and freeze for at least 5 hours.

Chocolate bananas – the perfect summer treat.
6 wooden ice cream sticks
3 ripe bananas
150g of cooking chocolate (choose dark or milk depending on taste)
Toppings to suit (i.e. chopped almonds, grated coconut, sprinkles)
Peel and halve the bananas and push a stalk or a chopstick in each half. Place the banana halves on a cutting board and freeze them for about 3 hours. Melt the chocolate (preferably in the water bath) and spread the toppings on grease-proof paper. Dip each of the bananas into the melted chocolate and quickly roll them into your chosen toppings. Allow to cool and enjoy or simply freeze them.
Tip: You can also use chocolate sticks in place of wooden ice cream sticks.
