Recipe :: Coconut Ice

Here's a yummy {and healthy} twist on an old favourite! Traditionally made, Coconut Ice is not the healthiest of sweet treats. Copha or butter usually makes up the majority of this yummy recipe and although tasty - it's not very good for us!

Well, 3 years ago I was involved in a ladies Boot Camp/Bible Study with some lovely women. One special lady, Veronica, would cook us beautiful soups, fresh bread and healthy treats to enjoy together after our intense exercise session.

This one here is her clever recipe.

Instead of using butter/copha you simply use mashed potato! It binds the coconut together just as well and in all my 'product testing' happy recipients cannot tell the difference!

This is definitely one to try, only 3 simple ingredients, perfect for using leftover mash from dinner without it going to waste.
