Do you want to build a snowman?
Or make a batch of icy treats?
I think some sugar here is overdue,
I’m talking to,
The banters who hate sweets!
Once upon a time we convinced ourselves that coconut was good for us, and that it fits perfectly into the low-carb:high-fat eating regime (which it kinda does, by the way). I have taken this useful information, and placed it in a far more practical application – the beauty and simplicity that is coconut ice. All your good fats, in one beautiful place.
And if you think there is too much sugar in this recipe (which there is, by the way), you can just Let It Go… Let it go, smile as you watch your tummy grow! Just kidding. Any treat can be enjoyed in moderation. In this case, moderation means one nibble per month, followed by at least a 21.1km half marathon.
Totally worth it…
Frozen Coconut Ice
- 1 can of condensed milk (400g)
- 500g icing sugar
- 400g desiccated coconut
- Food colouring of choice – in the case of Frozen, you may want to use blue
- Mix the condensed milk, coconut and icing sugar together until well-combined and consistent throughout
- Divide the mixture in half and colour the one half to the desired colour
- Press the white half of the mixture into a lined pan, such as a brownie pan, and compress down
- Repeat with the other half for the second layer, ensuring it is smooth and even
- Can be enjoyed straight away, cut into squares or other desired shape, and it lasts well (which is great because it can get very sweet)
