Coconut Ice Balls

This is a version of coconut ice without condensed milk or egg whites. I find that the ball shape makes it easier for the boys to hold and eat, and these look great for gifts, or to decorate cakes/cupcakes 🙂

Note that the pictures in this batch have balls in different sizes as I made them to top a cake 🙂
