There are some foods that are just undeniably Australian – a meat pie with a squeezy packet of tomato sauce, a sausage sandwich from Bunnings, and of course, the Iced VoVo. The classic biscuit has been in every pantry, cupboard and lunch box for generations, and now it has been re-invented into some new and delicious treats. Trust us, these treats will make you go VoVo.
Wake me up before you VoVo – before you VoVo to Doughnut Time for one of their strawberry icing, jam and sugary coconut square topped doughnuts!
Want a healthy version of the classic treat? Mylk + Ko blends up an uber good looking Iced VoVo Super Mylkshake, using fresh fruit, almond milk, cocowhip and a delicious housemade raw Iced VoVo!
Just try and get a coffee at Putia Pure Food Kitchen without caving and picking up one of their gluten free Iced VoVo slices while your there. Go on, we dare you.
These guys not only make ridiculously good macarons, but they also do an Iced VoVo cheesecake tart so pink and coconutty that you’ll be back for another slice before you can say ‘ice, ice, baby!’
Who says Iced VoVos have to be baked? At Nutri Hitt, you might just find a raw version in their cabinet of sweets (or one of their many stockists!), packed with way more goodness than the ones you remember from when you were a kid!
Nitrogenie’s magic flavours change every week, so you might need to wait awhile for their Coco Jam VoVo, but it’s so worth it for a spoon full of strawberry cream, biscuit crumble, jam and shredded coconut, mixed and frozen right before your eyes!
Okay, so the Gold Coast’s Bam Bam Bakehouse isn’t quite in Brisbane, but surely we can all agree that it’s worth the trip for an Iced VoVo éclair. That’s right. Iced. VoVo. Éclair. The bakehouse sandwiches coconut cream between two half biscuit/half pastry slices and tops them with an overload of strawberry jam icing. Bam, bam, thank you ma’am!
It’s time to go-go for a VoVo!
