Chocolate covered coconut lime ice-cream – lactose free, dairy free


4 heaped dessert spoons of freshly grated or desiccated coconut

3 heaped teaspoons of golden caster sugar

Juice from 1 small lime

80g of dairy free chocolate – ideally made with coconut oil.

165 ml of coconut milk


Melt chocolate in a bowl over a bain-marie.

Coat the inside of silicone moulds with chocolate and place on a tray in the freezer.

Add coconut milk, coconut, lime juice and sugar to a mixing bowl and mix well.

Remove chocolate moulds from the freezer and add a small amount of coconut mix to each one.

Return to the freezer until fully frozen.

Remove the moulds from the freezer and add some melted chocolate to cover the top of each mould.

Return to the freezer till frozen.

Remove from the silicone moulds and ENJOY – these are mouthfuls of heaven, resembling the popular chocolate bar promising a taste of tropical heaven – you know what I mean 😉

If using gluten free chocolate these mini ices are gluten free, lactose free & dairy free. A treat for a hot summers day, easy to make.

I am a state registered dietitian. My speciality is dietary treatment of gut disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, lactose & fructose malabsorption and multiple food intolerances. I have had lots of experience in other areas of dietetics and I wished to start this blog to spread the word about evidence based dietary treatments and dispel much of the quackery that is common with these diseases. All information on this site is of a general nature and is based on UK based treatments and guidelines. Please see your healthcare practitioner should you need more country specific information.
