Coconut Ice Cream Recipe

(Kem Dua)

Ingredients : Serves 4

275 ml

350 ml



5 ml

100 g

1/4 teaspoon



50 g

A few sprigs

Thick coconut milk

Fresh ice cream


Egg yolks

Vanilla essence





Desiccated coconut, dry-fried until golden brown


Method :
  • Heat the coconut milk and cream over a medium heat and cook for 5 minutes without boiling over.

  • Beat together the eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, sugar and salt.

  • Place a deep bowl in a saucepan with boiling water up to the halfway mark of the bowl.

  • Pour in the egg mixture and beat in the warm coconut milk mixture, a little at a time.

  • Stir until the mixture thickens enough to coat a spoon.

  • Remove from the heat, stirring occasionally as it cools.

  • Pour into a bowl when it is cool enough to be put into the freezer. Freeze for 1 hour. Scoop out into a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Pour back into the bowl and freeze until solid.

  • Serve in scoops, garnished with desiccated coconut and springs of mint.
