  • 1 cup coconut condensed milk – store bought or sugar free recipe below in notes
  • 3 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 teaspoons blue spirulina powder (start with 1 teaspoon and add more if a more vibrant blue is desired)

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil


  • Firstly, if you are making your own sugar free condensed coconut milk do that first. Recipe link below in notes.
    Use silicone bar molds or line a loaf pan with parchment paper, taking it over the top and sides to act as a handle so removing the bars is easy.
    In a bowl mix the condensed milk, coconut, honey and vanilla extract until well combined. Taste test and add more honey if you think it needs it.
    Press into the loaf pan or silicon pan and spread out evenly with a spatula or back of a spoon. Place in freezer while you make the chocolate coating.

Chocolate Coating

  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in small dish and microwave with 20 second bursts, stirring between each one until melted and smooth.
    Or use double boiler method - (pot of boiling water with a bowl resting on top) melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil together.
    Remove the bars and after checking they are firm and set, remove from pan using the parchment paper handles and cut into 10-12 bars or pop out of molds.
    Skewer each bar, or use 2 forks to hold each bar or use a fork placed underneath, dip every bar into the melted chocolate then place on a rack to dry. Dip twice for extra coating if preferred.
    Put the bars into the freezer for at least 3 hours.
    Once chocolate is set and crisp, enjoy your homemade Blue Dream Coconut bars.
    They will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
