  • 400ml can coconut milk

    Coconut milk

    Coconut milk is not the slightly opaque liquid that flows from a freshly opened coconut –…

  • juice 7-8 limes (you need 150ml), zest of 2



    The same shape, but smaller than…

  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 140g vanilla bean paste
  • 100g sweetened desiccated coconut


  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.

This recipe has a typo in it! Online it says 140g of vanilla bean paste but in the print magazine it says 1tsp which is much more like it! I followed the magazine and it was amazing. I made these for a friend who is vegan and she loved them.

Mine were nice enough, but definitely didn't look like the photograph - the darkness of the vanilla bean paste makes the lollies more buff-coloured. I only used 30g of vanilla bean paste because that was all I happened to have left, and 140g of it would be MEGA expensive! It's also a good idea to strain the mixture through a sieve before pouring it into the moulds, otherwise you get a messy cap of lime zest at the pointy end.
