This recipe is simple and easy to make and tastes deliciously smooth. The coconut bites are ideal to give as treats to the little ones or to wrap up and take out on days out. I like to keep them stored in the fridge, they are a great for a nibble or with a nice cup of coffee.
They are not entirely a healthy treat but contain no added sugar. A nice crispy chocolate coating with a moist creamy filling
- Tin of coconut milk 400ml
- 250g desiccated Coconut
- 3 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp Brown Rice Syrup or 3tbsp of sweetener
- 200g Dark Chocolate (The darker the better)
Add the coconut milk to a pan and heat up over a medium heat. Add in the coconut oil and sweetener. Once heated up add in the desiccated coconut and combine well. Keep mixing until it thickens and clumps together.
Take away from the heat and place the mixture into a square tray. Press down to compress the mixture.
Place in the freezer for 1 hour until the mixture sets and becomes hard.
Melt the chocolate in a pan with a tbsp of coconut oil.
Take the coconut mixture out of the freezer and cut up into squares, about an inch by an inch.
Place the coconut chunks into the chocolate, once all coated take them out and place onto a piece of parchment paper.
Put the coconut bites into the fridge to set.
Now enjoy! Your own little taste of paradise
Love ice cream but you have no ice cream maker to make some in! No worries. Ice cream can be made without the use of a machine, just with a little patience
Homemade ice cream couldn’t be easier. I have always been a little worried that It wouldn’t turn out as nice as a churned ice cream but I was proved wrong last week when the eldest and I made up a batch for the first time of Coconut ice cream. It was simple to make and tasted incredibly delicious.
Once you master the basics of making ice cream you can then go on to invent your own flavours, becoming more adventurous with the flavour and texture. I have previously tried making ice cream from bananas, which tasted lovely but i wanted to try it another way.
This recipe is so creamy and smooth. You will be making up batches every day.
You will need:
- A tub to store your ice cream in
- Hand held electric mixer
- Tin of condensed milk
- Carton of double cream
- Tin of coconut milk
- 1tsp Vanilla essence
- In a bowl pour in the double cream. Using a mixer or by hand whip the double cream until it begins to thicken
- Add in the condensed milk and whip again
- Fold in the coconut milk
- Add in any flavouring or colouring
- pour into you tupperware tub and place in the freezer
The ice cream will set around the edge first so take it out after an hour and stir to combine it all. Repeat an hour later.
Leave to set over night.
You are now ready to serve up your treat
We added banana slices into our ice cream. For my next batch I am going to try ginger and cinnamon.
Thank you for reading 🙂

Since recieving my diagnosis of cancer I have changed my diet. I try to have turmeric at least once a day. It is good for inflammation and is known for fighting diseases. It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spics and a medicinal herb. The main compound being curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant.
