Old Fashioned Coconut Ice

Serves 20 Prep Time 10 minutes   Rated:


I have a LOT of cookbooks made for me by my mother and they are all great recipes. Such a legacy of good old fashioned recipes and I rarely look at them...anyway, I kept seeing a raw version of coconut ice pop up here and there and I was going to do that. But I remember with such fondness the beautiful pink and white confection of my childhood that I decided to go the original route, and just ‘healthy’ it up a notch. Here it is...still not good for you in one big slab, but just limit yourself to a square a day. Delightful and nostalgic, all in the same mouthful! This recipe appears in The Weekend Table, in the party section...for obvious reasons.

Try some of my mum's other recipes that are slowly making their way onto here, re-mixed of course:
