Mango and Avocado Salad

Mango and Avocado Salad

Salads. They’re not exactly the trickiest of recipes to get right. But what can be a bit tricky is making a salad taste great. The sort of salad that makes you think “wow!”.

And I think we might have just done that!

We’ve fallen in love with this mango and avocado salad. It’s embarrassingly easy, yet bursting with sweet, fresh flavours… perfect as we build-up for the warm summer months.

Method

1. Place can of coconut milk in fridge overnight or in freezer for a couple of hours to set the cream. Eventually the cream will settle at the top of the can.

2. Remove skin from the banana and mango, and roughly chop. Discard the stone from the mango.

3. Blend the banana, mango, coconut cream, vanilla extract, and 1 tsp of agave syrup until smooth and set aside in a measuring jug.

4. Blend the strawberries with 1 tsp of agave syrup until runny.

5. Pour some of the yellow mixture into the ice lolly moulds, followed by a few teaspoons of the red mixture.

6. For a tie-dye effect, use one of the pop sticks and push the red mixture down into the yellow mixture along the sides of the moulds.

7. Fill the remainder of the moulds with the yellow mixture and insert one pop stick into the middle of each mould.

8. Freeze for at least 4 hours or ideally overnight.
