Coconut & Rose Petal Milk Lollies • Grown up Mini Milks

Last Summer the boys helped me make some fruit mini milks which went down a treat!

But when Rich and I tried them, our grown up palettes found them a little bland! So have a go at making a batch of these babies, ready for when the warmer Spring days pop their heads around the cloudy corner.

As you pour or spoon the mix into lolly moulds add a third at a time, adding extra petals in between to ensure they aren't completely soggy by the time they are placed in the freezer.

To make the sprinkle topping, take your sugared violets and lime seeds and gently crush into small pieces. Rip a couple of petals into little pieces.

Delicious and divine to look at!

Now these are a proper grown up treat. You get a hint of the delicate petal flavour combined with the creamy coconut texture and then pockets of sweetness in the sugared violets and lime seeds.
