Coconut ice is one of those classic treat recipes and is a great one to make with kids. This recipe is super simple to make, with only four ingredients required!

For this recipe you will need a can of sweetened condensed milk, icing sugar, desiccated coconut and a drop of food colouring.

I’ve gone with the classic pink and white combination, but you can also try adding some cocoa for a chocolate hint, or other combinations of food colouring. Blue would be great if you’re making this for a baby shower!

I’ve also made this previously with a drop of peppermint essence – it adds a delicious and refreshing twist to the recipe and is great with a cocoa base.

Ingredients
  1. 200g of Sweetened Condensed Milk (about half a can)
  2. 175g of desiccated coconut (about 1 3/4 cups)
  3. 225g of icing or powdered sugar (about 1 4/5 cups)
  4. Food colouring of your choice
Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, pour in the condensed milk
  2. Sift in the icing sugar and stir well until combined (this may take about 5 minutes or so)
  3. Next, add in the desiccated coconut and fold until evenly combined
  4. If you want a half and half look like the classic recipe, divide the mixture into two bowls
  5. In one half, add a very small drop of red or pink food colouring
  6. Mix well again until the colour has been evenly distributed
  7. Line a square tin or tupperware container, and add in the coloured mixture
  8. Using your hand, press the mixture down until it is fairly even
  9. Next, add in the plain half and again press down until smooth
  10. Place in the freezer for around an hour or until set, or in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 hours
  11. Once set, cut into 12 pieces and store in the refrigerator until serving
Notes
  1. The mixture will look quite dry when you first add in the icing sugar - keep stirring and it will mix together.
