My eldest and I had a great morning perfecting this healthy coconut ice slice. Or should I say healthier coconut ice slice.
I wouldn’t necessarily say this is 100% healthy, having a piece of broccoli or serve of veggies is always going to be better, but this ‘healthy’ coconut ice recipe is far lower in sugar than the traditional versions.
Lower in sugar, but still very easy. I may have in fact cheated a little on this recipe.
Last night I had a brainwave and realised my existing coconut snowball recipe with a few minor tweaks would totally be suitable as a low sugar coconut ice alternative.
My 5 yr old son will attest that it is yummy and easy to do, he could pretty much do the entire recipe (with supervision)
But there is nothing hot, no cutting needed (the food processor does that) no ingredients kids shouldn’t eat raw and no baking! It needs to be stored either somewhere cool or in the fridge.
We live in New Zealand, which means December is hot here. So for us, this is a store in the refrigerator type treat, but I suspect in cooler climates you may be ok storing this healthy coconut ice slice in the pantry.
If it does get a little soft just pop it in the fridge and problem solved!
We made this healthier treat to give away as gifts, I think my son is quite proud that he made something for someone else, which is awesome!
This healthy coconut ice slice recipe is part of my allergy-friendly recipe collection.
This means that it is free from the 8 most common food allergens, meaning that it should be suitable for most people even if they have multiple food allergies.
