1 13.5 ounce can coconut milk, unsweetened
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, well drained
1 11 oz. can mandarin oranges, well drained
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1/2 very ripe peach, peeled and cut in 1/2 cubes
1/4 cup sugar substitute (Splenda)
1-1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Use a cookie scoop, melon baler or spoon to make 1 inchť balls of ice cream, place on cookie sheet and return to freezer for at least 30 minutes. Do not worry about perfect shapes as you will reshape them a bit in the next step.
Remove balls from freezer. Gently roll and reshape each ball in your hands then quickly roll in coconut. The warmth of your hands will slightly melt the surface allowing the coconut to adhere. Place completed snowballs on a clean cookie sheet and return to freezer until time to serve.
Remove from freezer about 20 minutes before serving to allow them to soften a bit.
Yield: About 1 quart of "ice cream" or 55 snowballs.
Serving size: Approx. 5 snowballs or 1/3 cup
Number of Servings: 10
