Coconut Sorbet

This is probably one of the simplest ice cream I ever made. The texture is lighter than the usual custard based ice cream (thanks to the coconut water) and it is really a cross between a sorbet and ice cream. This recipe is perfect for newly acquired ice cream machine owners or novice ice cream makers.
 

Ingredients:
1½ cup (350 ml) coconut water – fresh or canned (if using pre-packaged, look for all natural coconut juice with no sugar added)
3/4 cup (200 ml) coconut milk
3/4 cup (200 ml) fresh milk
1/4 cup (55 g) granulated sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract / vanilla bean paste

Makes about 1 liter tub

Recipe source: Hot Thai Kitchen (with  slight modifications)

Instead of vanilla extract, I’m using vanilla bean paste. You could use either or. 🙂

 

Let it cool before refrigerating it for at least 6 hours or overnight. Churn according to your ice cream machine’s instruction. You could also add in diced coconut flesh during the last 5 min of churning.
