Dairy-free and vegan

Replace the yoghurt with coconut cream or cashew nut cream.


Use a seed based muesli and top with toasted seeds or toasted coconut.


Use mixed berries and muesli sweetened with rice malt syrup.


Use a gluten free muesli mix.


Replace the muesli with toasted quinoa flakes, mixed nuts, seeds and coconut flakes.


I don't defrost the berries - I just throw them in which gives an icy consistency that my kids love.  They often play 'whip it up' where they stir it like crazy to make their own version of ice-cream.
