Grapefruit & Coconut Shaved Ice

Grapefruit & Coconut Shaved Ice

This dessert is basically perfect for the NOLA heat because it’s ice cold and refreshing, but also much lighter and healthier than ice cream. I got the inspiration to whip it together from a spring-time abundance of grapefruits at the market. However, if grapefruits aren’t your thing, you can substitute orange or tangerine juice for the grapefruit juice in this recipe.  


Grapefruit + Coconut Shaved Ice

Prep time 30 min / Serves 6 - 8

  • 2 cups fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 1/2 cups full-fat canned coconut milk (+ extra for serving)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • Juice of 1 small lemon (or half of a small lemon)
  • Fresh grapefruit slices and mint for garnish

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients until the honey is completely dissolved into the rest of the liquid. Pour into a 9”x 9" baking pan and freeze overnight. To serve, portion out scoops with an ice cream scoop or melon-baller, or simply scrape the surface with a fork to create a slush that can be spooned into serving cups. Top with a drizzle of coconut milk, fresh grapefruit, and mint.
