A Coconut Milk Custard Ice-Cream

Posted in : Ice Cream on by : Daphne

Ingredients:

2 cup coconut milk (or coconut cream as a richer alternative)1 cup water4 x eggs1 tsp of vanilla or rosewater (optional)pinch of salt2 tbl of shredded coconut (see below)sprigs of mint for garnish

Instructions:

Stir fry the coconut until golden (optionally use a few pieces of fresh corn…
Thais often flavor ice cream with things considered unusual to western tastes). Heat the coconut milk and water over medium heat, stirring continuously for a couple of minutes. Do not allow to boil. In a bowl beat two eggs, plus two yolks, then add the other ingredients, and whisk gently. Transfer the mixture to a double boiler over gently boiling water, and slowly blend in the hot coconut milk, stirring until the mixture thickens to form a continuous slightly sticky coat on the back of a spoon lifted from the mixture. Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then transfer to a metal ice cream tray or similar container and place in the coldest part of the freezer for one hour. Remove to a food processor and beat slowly until smooth (this incorporates some stir into the mixture and prevents it
becoming too hard), then return to the freezer and complete the freezing process.
