Pumpkin Coconut Ice


Pumpkin coconut ice makes a healthy and tasty treat and is easy to make. 

This tastes so sweet as if it is too bad for you and your hips but it is a simple dish of coconut and pumpkin.  Nothing bad at all!   It reminds me a bit of the coconut ice sweet I used to make as a young girl but this is much better for you as it is not a mouthful of processed sugar!


I use the creamed coconut blocks to make this.   If you don’t have them, try some creamed coconut as that should work.  The joy of pumpkin…it just keeps giving!

    I too have looked unsucessfully for coconut cream in the UAE. I have found though that if you refrigerate the canned coconut cream, the fat rises the top, giving you “concentrate”.

      I believe that if you processed coconut flakes in a food processor and added a dash of coconut oil, this might yield coconut cream….need to try it though once my last block of coconut cream has been used!

    That sound really yummy. Where do you get coconut cream concentrate though? And is the pumpkin puree sweetened or is it simply pureed cooked pumpkin?

      I got the coconut cream concentrate from the UK as was unsure if I could buy it in Dubai..The pumpkin puree is simply cooked’s sweet enough for my taste but you could add sugar if you wanted.

        I am always in favor of NOT adding sugar. If you ever see coconut cream concentrate in Dubai, let me know. What exactly is it actually?

          Same here…the only sugar in our house is used for skin scrubs! Coconut Cream Concentrate is from the whole coconut meat and nothing else – not even water! It is ground into a very fine powder from dried coconut meat. I will let you know if I find some in Dubai!
