Vegan Coconut Ice ★★★★★1 review

Who remembers this popular dessert at school fetes?! The vegan version of this no-bake Australian classic is irresistibly sweet and is a combination experience of melt in your mouth with a chewy texture from the coconut. Recipe by Vegan Diaries.

Serves 16 | Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 0 mins


  • 125g Copha
  • 500g Icing Sugar
  • 250g Shredded or Desiccated Coconut (typically made with desiccated but shredded is nice and chewy – either is fine)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75ml Aquafaba
  • 5ml Vanilla Extract
  • Pink food colouring (double check it’s vegan)


  1. Melt the copha.
  2. Sieve icing sugar and add to desiccated coconut.
  3. Whip aquafaba until foamy.
  4. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except food colouring. Mix well and divide into two portions.
  5. Press one half into a lined 20cm square tin, then add colouring to the other half and press into the tin to form two layers.
  6. Chill overnight (or minimum 1 hour), then cut into 16 squares.
