Love lamingtons? Love ice cream? Why not combine them both for the perfect treat. Our ice cream lamington pops are perfect on a hot summer's day.
Vanilla Ice Cream
32 oz coconut milk
2 tbs honey (or a sweetener you can tolerate)
Vanilla Ice Cream
Place all of your ice cream ingredients into your ice cream machine. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to whip your ice cream until frozen.
While your ice cream is freezing, make your raspberry jelly. Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat. Cook until the raspberries have broken down and the jelly has thickened. You want as much moisture to cook out of it as possible. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Next you want to assemble your lamington pops. Using a large square ice cube mould (like this one), fill it 1/3 full with ice cream. Then add a dollop of raspberry jelly and fill the remaining mould with vanilla ice cream. Repeat until you have used up both mixtures.
Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove and add a wooden popsicle stick (like these ones) into the centre of each mould. Return to the freezer for at least 6 hours, or ideally overnight until they are completely frozen solid.
Once your popsicles are frozen, make your chocolate topping. Place a heat resistant bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water, being careful not to let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Place the chocolate, oil and honey in the bowl and melt, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
Place your shredded coconut on a plate.
Place parchment paper on trays that will fit in your freezer.
Remove the moulds from the freezer.
Working quickly, remove an ice cream square from its mould then dip it in the melted chocolate, ensuring all sides are covered. Immediately dip it in coconut, covering all sides, then place on the tray. Repeat with all remaining squares. Place the trays in the freezer for 1-2 hours to set the topping and firm up the ice cream filling.
Remove the lamington pops from the freezer a few minutes before you are ready to serve them, so they can start to soften up. How long they will need to soften will depend on the weather. If it is a hot day, you will need less time.
Return any un-eating pops to the freezer immediately so they won't melt. They will keep in an airtight container for several months.
If it is a warm day, you may need to place each popsicle in the freezer immediately after covering it in chocolate and coconut.
