I’ve made this mousse before but substituted the blackberries for strawberries. I suppose you can just use whatever is in season.
1 carton of cocunut cream (look for a one with as much coconut and little added rubbish!)
1 pint of blackberries. (I forgot to weigh them sorry but they did fill a pint jug!☺)
Throw it all in a food processor (simples!)
Blitz it until nice and smooth
Look at the colour on that! Stunning! How often do we get to give our children food that colour that is not filled with crap! Winner!
I then put them into little pots like these. I got these ones from homebargains. They’re about £1.70ish… for about 8 tubs. So I bought 3 lots.
I then just chuck them in the freezer and take them out when needed. If organised in the morning… ha as if! Just put them in the microwave for 20 ish seconds.
In the summer they’re nice to leave a little bit frozen so they’re like ice cream.
I really like them as if piglet has been a bit fussy with dinner she’ll always eat one of these and they’re full of good calories.
Plus fab if your little one can’t have dairy.
Have a go and let me know how you get on.
I love Autumn. Fishing out my knitted jumpers and getting the chimney cleaned for colder weather. Another excuse for 1 more hot chocolate and not shaving you legs!🙈😁
This year I have a little piglet to share this with too. At 8 months old she is wide awake and taking more and more in.
So I decided to take her blackberry picking! I’m lucky that at my mum and dad’s house there are lots of fields with blackberries in the hedges. So I don’t have to worry about car fumes etc…
Excuse the green cardi… but it’s so warm!
And of course we tried a few on the way. When your little one is saying “Yum!” You know that you’re on to a winner.
The dogs of course joined us too! Misbehaving as usual and fighting over a stick or too. Plus of course aggravating my mother!
Even the chucks came out to see what we were doing.
I talked to Piglet about the colour and how they tasted sweet.
I didn’t let Piglet pick them because of all the bramble… but I don’t think she minded having the job of chief taster!
We used the blackberries for our pudding.
I also made some yummy but very messy Blackberry Mousse and blackberry porrige sticks. (Recipes to follow).
Very messy but also very good fun for baby led weaning.
So get outside. There are still some blackberries out there foryou and your little one to enjoy.
