I made these for my family a couple of weeks ago for Valentine’s Day weekend. Although strawberries are technically out of season at this time of year I had seen them in the shops and thought they would be perfect for a heart-shaped theme. They are delicious; you need confidence that they will set well when you beat the coconut. I left them for an hour after making them, covered on the countertop although you could also pop them into the fridge.
As with all of my superfood smoothie and elixir recipes, don’t be discouraged from trying it if you don’t have all the ingredients in the list. Start where you are. Use what you have on hand.
