A fruity choc ice that tastes as good as it looks

With the right ingredients, you can create homemade delicious treats that look and taste better than anything you can find at the store — saving you money, too. As you'll see, ice cream is no different. Check out this simple recipe for making Lime & Coconut Choc Ices with a professional finish.

You'll need (for 4 portions):

For the ice cream:

  • 13.5 fl oz coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes
  • lemon zest
  • 2 fl oz lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint
  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • 2 fl oz milk

For the chocolate coating:

  • 1 ⅛ cup white chocolate
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • some yellow food coloring

Here's how:

  1. Add all of the ingredients for the ice cream into a blender and break them down into a consistent, smooth mixture.
  2. Divide the mix into four large ice pop molds and freeze them for three hours. 
  3. While the ice cream is in the freezer, melt the chocolate over a bain-marie. Add the coconut oil and some food coloring.
  4. The melted chocolate must be cooled to 85°F to be used. Pour it into a glass and dip the entire popsicle into the mixture. If the temperature is right, the chocolate coating should harden immediately and not drip. Place the choc ices in the fridge for several more minutes so that the coating fully hardens.

You'll no longer be able to tell your wonderful ice cream creations from the store-bought variety. Most importantly, these perfect popsicles really do taste as good as they look!
