Ingredients

  • 400ml can coconut milk
  • juice 7-8 limes (you need 150ml), zest of 2
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 140g vanilla bean paste
  • 100g sweetened desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Put the coconut milk, lime juice, half the zest, the sugar and vanilla bean paste in a large bowl, and mix together until smooth and well combined. Divide the mixture between the 10 cavities of your ice lolly mould and insert a stick into the middle of each (this mixture is thicker than the other lollies, so the stick can go in straight away). Freeze for at least 4 hrs or until frozen solid.

  2. Put the desiccated coconut in a small dry pan over a medium heat and cook, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted. Tip onto a plate and mix with the remaining zest.

  3. To remove the lollies, dip the mould in hot water for a few seconds, then carefully remove the lollies. Dip each lolly into the coconut mixture to serve.
