Food: Oatsicles

We may well have had our fill of sunshine for the year already, but on the off chance that there is more sunshine to come here’s a quick and easy recipe for a dairy free alternative ice lolly for keeping cool in the sun.

 

You’ll need:

  • Lolly moulds,
  • 1 carton of chocolate Oatly,
  • 1 banana.

 

Chop the banana into slices and fill the lolly moulds. Don’t pack them in too tight, you need to leave enough space for the chocolate drink. Pour in the drink to the brim, stick the lids/handles in firmly and leave in the freezer for a good couple of hours or overnight if possible. One carton can easily make between 6 – 8 lollies, depending on the amount of banana you use and the size of your moulds. I used the small ones from Lidl. The creaminess of the chocolate drink combined with the fudginess of the banana are a fantastic (and cheap) alternative to the usual sugary lollies. This way you can control their sugar intake with natural ingredients!

It also works great with other flavours of Oatly like Orange & Mango, or for a grownup take on the above recipe, mix some coffee into the chocolate Oatly mixture for an iced mocha lolly!

 

Enjoy!

Drink: Death by Mocha Shake

Here’s an amazing decadent milkshake recipe using one of my fridge essentials, Oatly Chocolate milk. With the flavours of espresso, chocolate and Oreo cookie- this is one grown up shake for the inner kid in all of us!

Serves 2-3
To make you’ll need:

  • 200ml Oatly chocolate oat drink
  • 2 scoops of espresso/coffee ice cream – I used my homemade espresso gelato, recipe here
  • 1 shot Tia Maria
  • 3/4 packet of Oreo cookies.

For the decoration:

  • Some vegan whipped cream- I used Whiptop Whipped Cream
  • 2 Oreo cookies

The recipe couldn’t be simple enough!

Start by pouring the chocolate milk into a blender, along with the scoops of espresso ice cream. Then, add the Oreo cookies, crushing them in your hands as you place them in. Pour the shot of Tia Maria in and blend until smooth and creamy.

Get two sundae or soda glasses and fill them with the shake mix. To finish, top with the whipped cream, a couple of straws and a couple of Oreo cookies.

And Enjoy!
