This peppermint bark, besides being freaking ADORABLE, is super creamy and delicious!
It has everything you love about a candy cane…. pretty red and white swirls, amazing sweetness and that nostalgic Christmas peppermint taste!
This peppermint bark looks so beautiful cut up and placed on a nice serving board. I’ve also been adding it to smoothies and banana icecream to be honest!


Coconut peppermint bark

Ingredients:Photo 12-12-2015, 9 56 45 AM (2)

  • 400 mL of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar. I used Coconut Magic Coconut sugar OR another sweeten of your choice
  • Peppermint essence/oil (quantity will differ depending on the strength of your peppermint oil)
  • Some raspberries or strawberries (frozen berries will also work)
  • 1/4 tsp Loving Earth vanilla bean powder

Optional toppings:

  • Coconut flakes. I used Coconut Magic
  • Flaked almonds

To make peppermint bark:

  1. Pour coconut milk, coconut sugar, vanilla bean powder and peppermint essence into a blender. Depending on the strength of your peppermint essence/oil will change the amount you should put in, so start with a little bit and keep adding according to your taste. Add a LITTLE but more than you think you need because once it’s frozen I found that you can’t taste HS_uOKPeY148safVCxgssMd8_wXIWVGLm3SCzxK0KKgthe peppermint as much. Be careful not to add too much because if you do it really ruins it. Blend for a few seconds until well mixed.
    NOTE: Make sure you use full fat coconut milk otherwise it will freeze icy instead of smooth and creamy.  
  2. Line a dish with a large surface area with baking paper.
  3. Pour your coconut milk mixture into the lined dish. Sprinkle raspberries and coconut flakes into the dish
  4. Place the dish in the freezer to set over night
  5. Remove dish from freezer, remove the frozen coconut bark from the baking paper and break apart the bark with your hands or using a knife.
  6. Sprinkle with additional coconut flakes if desired and serve!Photo 12-12-2015, 9 54 41 AM (2)Original recipe by Made Whole co
