Did you know you can eat wisteria flowers? They're delicious too! Don't eat the stems, though, or the leaves or seed pods. All those other parts are toxic, even deadly for young children, especially the seed pods. The flowers taste like butter lettuce with a tiny hint of honeysuckle. Very refreshing.
1 frozen banana (I keep them around in a pinch, you could use a raw banana too.)
2 cans of full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 small avocado (pitted & peeled)
1 cup wisteria flowers stemmed
Important to remove stems. If you have allergies you should remove the pistils and stamens too. (We don't so I left them in. I like the flavor, it gives a hint of honey.)
Blend everything (except for the flowers). If it is too thick, add just a bit of water, little by little.
Here's the breakdown of macronutrients and nutritional information for one popsicle.
You could probably use a lower fat coconut milk, but why? Fat is so good for you. It gives such a rich consistency, making it much more satisfying. I also noticed after eating it, my lips were softer which is an added bonus when everything is so dry.
Anyhoo, I hope you like it! Perfect recipe for a random Wednesday. I wish my niece Isla was with me today. She would have thought the whole thing was as cool as I did. There's nothing like a little scavenging for nibbles in the yard.
