Good Evening friends! I hope this finds you well and having a great week so far.
All is well here … the Summer weather has really hit here on the Coast, our Christmas Tree and decorations have gone up and the countdown is on until school is finished. I am sure I am not alone in saying how fast this year has flown and how crazy busy this months calendar is looking!
I have a gorgeous new Christmassy (is that a word?!) recipe for you all to enjoy …. can’t wait to hear from you when you make it!
Creamy Coconut Ice
3 ½ cups desiccated coconut
270ml coconut cream
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup
6 drops pink food colour
Line a 20cm x 20cm square cake tin with baking paper and set aside.
Place the desiccated coconut into a large bowl and set aside.
Place the coconut cream, coconut oil and maple syrup into a small saucepan. Stir over a medium – low heat for 1-2 minutes or until the coconut oil is melted.
Pour the melted coconut oil mixture over the desiccated coconut and mix thoroughly.
Pour half of the mixture into the prepared tin and push down evenly and firmly to form a bottom layer.
Add the food colour to the rest of the mixture left in the bowl and combine thoroughly.
Place the coloured layer on top of the bottom layer and spread evenly and firmly.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares and serving.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
- This is a beautiful and creamy coconut ice and IS NOT overly sweet. You can increase the sweetness to suit your taste buds (just taste it before putting it into the cake tin).
- I use ‘hopper’ food colours as they are additive free. These can be bought in 7 different colours through my online store.
- If maple syrup is not the sweetener of your choice – please feel free to swap it!
- Perfect for a Christmas gift idea!
Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week, stay cool and make sure you drink plenty of water and try to get plenty of sleep!
Take Care of You,
PS I am doing post office deliveries every 1-2 days up until Christmas to ensure everyone gets their Christmas coloured 100′s and 1000′s in time for baking and that you get your books in time for gift giving! Please don’t leave it too late and miss out!
