No Cook Easy Coconut Ice Recipe (1)

Along with my 2 ingredient fudge, this easy recipe is an absolute staple in my homemade gift repertoire - it wouldn't be Christmas without making several batches of my no cook coconut ice! I've been making this classic coconut ice for years and it's my most requested recipe.

Be sure to check out my recipe video so you can see just how easy this is to make!

Because I am part of a wonderfully large family, for the last 10 years I have made most of my Christmas presents. Every year I set aside a day or two in the run up to the big day and make piles and piles of homemade sweets for the whole family, and this easy coconut ice is always the first recipe I start with. It's quick, easy to make and looks and tastes amazing!

This recipe makes a really big batch of coconut ice - I cut mine into 8 square's worth, but if you don't need so much, you can easily cut the recipe in half by using justone tin of condensed milk and half of the icing sugar and coconut.

Easy Coconut Ice

Ingredients:

  • 2 400g tins sweetened condensed milk
  • 700g icing sugar
  • 650g desiccated coconut
  • pink gel food colouring (optional)

Method:

Line a smallrectangular bakingtrayor cake tin with baking parchment. If you don’t have any, tin foil also works well.

In a large bowl, mix one tin ofcondensed milk with 350g of the icing sugar. Mix well, then add 325g of the desiccated coconut and stir again until thoroughly combined (the mixture may be quite stiff and hard to stir, but do persevere!).

Tip into your prepared tray or tin and press down to form a thin layer.

In the same bowl, tip in the second tin of condensed milk and mix with the remaining 350g of icing sugar. Add the food colouring (if using), andstir in until the mixture is a completely pink.

Add the remaining 325gdesiccated coconut and stir until combined. Gently tip into the tray and press down to form a second layer over the first.

Leave the tray out to dry over night. Once the topfeels hardened to touch, carefullytip the slab of coconut ice out ontoa large chopping board, peel off the baking parchment/tin foil and leave to dry for a few more hours.

Cut intobars, squares or even prettyshapes using cookie cutters and leave to dry a little longer before serving up or packing into pretty cellophane bags ready to gift to your favourite people!
