Almond, Chia & Raspberry Ice Block

You will get lots of nutrients from this lolly. The almond milk contains vitamin E, which is great for your skin. Chia seeds contain calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and protein, which are essential for good bones. Chia seeds are also full of antioxidants, fibre, zinc and iron.

260ml almond milk

2 teaspoons chia seeds

A handful of raspberries


In a jug, mix together the almond milk and chia seeds.

Divide the mixture between the moulds, leaving a 3cm gap at the top.

Cut the raspberries in half and place some in each mould. Using a spare lolly stick, arrange the raspberries, if needed.
