There was a potluck get together in my daughter's play school today for Christmas and I was thinking what to make. I wanted to make a something which is healthier. I usually make coconut ice at home but since I was thinking of an healthier option, I thought of adding apples to this dish.
Apple Coconut Ice is an extremely healthy dessert especially for kids. It has lots of fresh apple and coconut, hence great for their tiffin/ snack as well. This can be a great dessert in get togethers as well. Coconut Ice is popularly known as Coconut Barfi in India. Hope you like it.
