Cream extracted from cow's milk is normally used for making ice cream. Here I have used milk extracted from coconut to make Ice Cream.

Please go through the instructable on how to make Coconut Milk Ice Cream at home

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

  • One Coconut
  • 50 grams of Cashew Nuts
  • 5 to 6 Cardamom pods
  • One cup of Sugar

Step 2: Grind Coconut to a Paste

  • Break open the coconut and remove the meat
  • Add the coconut meat in a mixer grinder along with the Cardamom pods
  • Lightly grind without adding any water. This will crush all big chunks of coconut into small pieces
  • Add about 2 cups of water and grind to make a fine paste

Step 3: Extract Coconut Milk

  • Using a clean cotton cloth or cheesecloth, filter out the coconut milk
  • Transfer the remains once again to the grinder jar, add 2 cups of water and grind again
  • Filter out the milk from the second grinding also.

You can extract milk from coconut meat 2 to 3 times. For better results extract milk twice only, otherwise the milk will have more water in it

Step 4: Make Cashew Nut Powder

Step 5: Boil the Coconut Milk

  • Keep a clean pan over medium heat and add the extracted coconut milk in it
  • Add one cup of sugar and cashew nut powder to the milk and mix well
  • You can taste a sample coconut milk at this time and add sugar to your own taste

Step 6: Allow to Cool

  • Once the milk starts to boil and all ingredients are mixed well together, remove from the stove
  • Cover the pan with a lid and allow the mixture to cool

Step 7: Deep Freeze the Mix

  • Once the mixture has been cooled off, place the pan in the deep freezer
  • First I tried to place the pan in which the coconut milk was boiled. It fitted inside the freezer, but could not close the door. So I have transferred the mixer to another small container and kept in the freezer

Step 8: Scoop Out and Serve Coconut Milk Ice Cream

That's great! Especially since you made the coconut milk yourself. Do you think it'll have the same result if I use a can of coconut milk? Do you use cashew for better texture?

I may give this one a try. I have an ice cream freezer so I may try churning it. I did not know that about extracting milk more than once. Good to know.
