- 200g Carnation Condensed Milk.
- 230g icing sugar.
- 180g desiccated coconut.
- And pink paste food colouring. (I’m using Sugarflair Claret.)
I LOVE coconut ice. I always used to get a bar of it when my mum and I used to go to the beach when I was a little girl. This recipe is so simple, it requires no baking and only four ingredients.
Once the icing sugar has been mixed in, pour in the desiccated coconut and mix. This will start to be very stiff.
Then separate the mixture into two bowls. This is where you can decide what colour and flavour to make your coconut ice. I’m leaving mine natural flavouring.
Squidge the mixture into your lined tupperware box on separate sides then using your hands, push them together, the mixture should be wet enough for them to stick nicely. Then pop this in the fridge and leave to set for 2-3 hours. For best results, leave overnight,
Once set, pull your block of coconut ice out of the tupperware box using your baking paper and peel it away.
Sit back and admire your beautiful and nostalgic sweet treat! Once they are cut up like this, they can easily be put into little cellophane bags to be given as presents too.
