Novo Farms Coconut Ice-Cream
Yield: 1 Liter
- 1 ½ Cups Novo Farms Grated Coconut
- 2 Cups Milk
- 3 Cups Heavy Cream
- ¼ Cup Coconut Powder
- 1 Vanilla Bean or 1 tbsp of Vanilla Essence
- 10 Oz Sugar
- 12 Egg Yolks
- In a medium bowl, put your shredded coconut followed by the milk. Mix together by hand and squeeze the coconut and milk together to allow it to bleed and become one .
- Carefully add a little of this coconut and milk mixture to a blender and process until it breaks down further into a thicker product. Continue Blending all the contents and then strain this mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the fragmented coconut shreds and save that fresh coconut milk. You can even squeeze the shreds further to remove as much coconut milk as possible.
- Retain ½ Cup of the shreds for later .
- Take your strained coconut milk and pour into a medium sauce pan. Add the heavy cream, coconut powder, vanilla bean, sugar; place on a medium heat and bring to a slow simmer stirring ever so often to prevent it from bubbling over.
- Meanwhile, place your egg yolks into a separate medium mixing bowl, and whisk to break the yolks.
- When milk mixture has come to a light bubble, remove from heat and set pot aside.
- Take ½ Cup of the hot milk mixture and add it to the egg yolks in a slow steady stream and whisk. Do not add a lot at a quickly as this would cause the yolks to curdle .
- Continue doing this until you have used all of the mixture. This is
- Known as your Custard Anglasie. Place all the anglaise mixture back into the same pot and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until custard angalise thickens up.
- Remove from heat and strain through a fine sieve to remove any pieces of curdled custard that may have developed.
- Place strained angalsie into a chiller for four hours or until completely cold.
- Then pour your mixture into you ice cream maker or churner and set for 30 to 35 minutes to churn.
- When ice cream is done, you would have to store it in a sealed container and set for a further 3 hours in freezer to firm up.
- Once frozen you are free to serve and enjoy your coconut ice cream
