Review | The Coconut Collaborative Snowconut – Vegan/Paleo Ice Cream!

The Coconut Collaborative are “a lovely bunch of coconutters” who have somehow – I will never understand how, don’t even try and explain it to me – figured out a way to turn coconut into yoghurt.

Serves 2 100g caster sugar 100ml boiling water 1 measure creme de cassis (not essential but gives the great colour and I needed an excuse to use it) 200g lychees, peeled, stoned and blended Zest and juice of …
