Tender Coconut Ice Cream


Tender Coconut Ice Cream is a delicious, and refreshing ice cream made with fresh tender coconut. The flavors was perfect and something I urge you to attempt.

Mint & Choco-chip Ice-cream is on my text to-do list. I felt that this was something I have never done before & the recipe was easy enough for someone like me to replicate. However, I did make slight changes – I replaced choco chips with tender coconut & added vanilla essence for just the hint of flavor. Also I doubled the recipe & increased tender coconut as per my needs. I also added coconut before blending rather than after blending as it would give a uniform taste of coconut in the ice-cream. But if one is using choco chips then they have to be added later.

Serve chilled with wafers or in a waffle cone. The ice-cream was very good, with just a little hint of refreshing peppermint complimenting tender coconut beautifully. Also, it had perfect sweetness – just the way we like it. Though little ice-crystals were formed, the reason for which I have to do some R&D on, the ice-cream was still a hit. If any of you are aware why it happened & how to avoid in future please suggest.

  • 1 litre full fat milk
  • 8 tbsp sugar granulated
  • tbsp cornflour
  • 200 gram fresh cream
  • 4 tsp peppermint crushed
  • 8 tbsp tender coconut finely chopped
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Drink a coconut. Ask the vendor to remove & give you 'malai' or tender flesh of coconut. Bring it home, chop it into fine pieces. I loved writing this step.
  • Dissolve cornflour in 50 ml milk & set aside.
  • Boil the remaining milk in a thick bottom pan. When it is boiled, add cornflour-milk slowly, stirring continuously. Now add sugar & mix till uniform.
  • Simmer for another 4-5 mins, continue stirring.
  • Remove from flame and allow to cool completely.
  • When cool, add the cream, vanilla essence, peppermint & tender coconut. Mix. Transfer to a shallow container & freeze till slushy – about 7-8 hours.
  • Divide the ice-cream in 2 batches & churn each batch separately in a blender till smooth. Transfer back to the shallow container.
  • Freeze till set completely.


  1. The coconut flesh should neither be too firm nor too soft.
  2. You can use peppermint candy like polo or minto.

  1. This looks refreshing!!!! Nice addition of coconut too ;)) Must try it this way next time…And for the ice crystals..you need to store the icecream in a plastic container..Storing in steel etc will cause ice to form..And then some add CMC, GMS etc will also gives a smooth texture but i try and avoid such ‘complicated’ ingredients…And btw..thank u for the kind mention :))
