Since dusting off my ice cream maker a few weeks ago, I have been thinking a lot about trying to make some coconut ice cream. It is hard to find in the shops, and when you do, it is so full of STUFF. You know what I mean. Ingredients we can't pronounce. Although it can be yummy, it often has artificial flavouring as well. So if you are up for a more natural coconut flavour give my version a go.
You will need:
2 cups of whole milk (or cream if you prefer)
31/2 cup of raw or natural sugar
1 can of coconut milk
1. Stir the sugar and milk together until the sugar is dissolved. This will take a few minutes.
2. Stir the coconut milk in until fully blended. You can use a stick blender for this. Taste the mixture if you like. It should taste a little too sweet, because your final product will taste less sweet than this once frozen.
3. Pour this mixture into an ice cream maker, or into ice lolly molds. You can pour it directly into a container and freeze, but the final ice cream will be quite icy.
