How to Make Coconut Ice with only 6 ingredients A little sweetness at home – delicious and so tempting with a chocolate flavor.

Why is it coconut ice?

It was originally created in Britain but is popular in New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. The name is thought to have come from the appearance of the white looking like ice. You can also find this in the USA but under the name of Neapolitan Coconut with the addition of a chocolate layer!

I think Coconut Ice is a delicious treat! It is a great snack or dessert and this one is not the typical pink and white, but made with cocoa. It’s also a great way to get a bit of healthy coconut into your diet.
