I was actually never a huge fan of coconut ice even as a child – it was too sweet and I found it a little underwhelming.

This version however incorporates raspberries to create the “pink” layer, which not only adds a lovely flavour but also creates a different creamier texture for that layer which gives to two layers more contrast.

These low-carb bars contain only a few ingredients, are super simple to make, and would make a great healthy, nut-free addition to a kid’s birthday party.

Instructions

  1. Place 3 cups of the coconut in a high powered blender and process on high until it forms a smooth paste, scraping down the sides as you go. This can take anywhere from five to ten minutes, depending on your food processor. Alternatively, use ready-made coconut butter and start from step 2. Low-Carb Raspberry Coconut Ice Bars
  2. To the coconut butter, add the coconut cream and erythritol and process until combined. Remove half of the mixture and set aside.
  3. To the half still in the food processor bowl, add the vanilla extract and blend until combined. Then add 1/2 cup of the remaining desiccated coconut and pulse to combine.

  4. Pour this half into a lined tin (about 24 cm x 12 cm/ 9.5 inch x 5 inch) and press down. Place into the freezer while you prepare the top layer.
  5. Add the remaining half back to the food processor bowl and add the raspberries. Blend until combined. Add the remaining coconut and pulse until combined.
  6. Pour on top of the first layer and press down. To get a smooth top layer, place a flat knife under running hot water for a few seconds, and then use to smooth out the layer while still warm.

To clarify:
A) You need 4 cups desiccated fine coconut (360 g/ 13.5 oz) OR
B) 1 cup of desiccated coconut (the part that is kept aside in step one PLUS 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (270 g/ 9.5 oz) of coconut butter - This is instead of the 3 cups of desiccated coconut (also weighing 270 g/ 9.5 oz) in case you want to skip the blending.
