Chocolate Coconut Ice
To make chocolate coconut ice, mix 50 g (1/3 cup) melted dark chocolate into half of the coconut mixture and prepare the recipe as described in the previous steps. Add a little more sweetened condensed milk if the mixture seems very crumbly.
Neapolitan Coconut Ice
To make Neapolitan coconut ice, double the ingredients. Divide the mixture into three equal parts. Leave one part white, colour another part pink and mix melted chocolate into the last part. Layer all three parts, and then chill and cut as described above.
