I love this idea and I think it turned out super cute!
Even though these wouldn’t last in an Easter basket, they still make a great Easter treat! Plus, they are healthy and contain good fats for those little growing bodies!
2-16 oz. cans of organic coconut milk (light or full fat)
4 tbsp. agave, honey, or maple syrup
Freeze dried raspberries, tangerines, blueberries (I found these at Trader Joe’s)
For the green coconut “GRASS” see this post.
Place coconut milk in blender or use a whisk and incorporate the sweetener. Divide coconut milk mixture into 3 small bowls and set aside.
For the dyes: dried raspberries for pink, dried tangerines for orange, and dried blueberries for purple……..if you cannot find freeze-dried fruit you may use fresh fruit as well…..
the freeze-dried fruit comes in a package like this:
To make the dye for the coconut milk place dried fruit (separately for each color) into a coffee grinder or food processor
Use this powder to dye the coconut milk. The more you use the better the color will be. Do the same for each color. Grind the dried fruit and add it to the bowl of coconut milk.
Pour the first color into cupcake liners…
Place Saran wrap over cupcake tray and poke holes with sucker sticks or popsicle sticks. The plastic wrap will hold the sticks in place until frozen.
Place in freezer for 1/2 hour. These do not have to be completely hardened just firm enough to pour the next color. Once you have poured the second color place back into freezer. Again, allow about 1/2 hour to firm up the coconut milk. Pour the third layer and freeze again. This last freeze should be 3-4 hours or let them sit overnight. Remove wrapper before eating.
