Sitaphal Coconut Icecream


One thing that most Indian love is Naturals ice-cream for its tropical flavors. Tender Coconut, Sitaphal ( custard apple) , Chickoo, Mango …hmmm, just thinking about it makes me drool! With the temperatures rising here I wanted to try making an ice-cream. With natural ingredients and without buying yet another appliance.

And make it quickly – without having to churn it many times.  So here is an easy recipe for any natural fruit ice-cream. I made it in magic bullet. One container to make, set and eat. Couldnt be better! Start with frozen fruit pulp and it takes about 10 minutes to make it and a few hours to over night to set.  Its only 2-3 ingredients with sugar being optional on how sweet the custard apple naturally is and how sweet you like your ice-cream. Make sure you use coconut cream and not coconut milk. This recipe will not work with coconut milk.

Once made, its hard to resist while it sets. Vipul peeked in and wanted a spoonful while it was in a smoothie like state. I had another spoonful while it was in a soft-serve cone like state. But we tried to leave some aside so we get to enjoy it as an ice cream. Varun loved the ice cream, especially the watermelon bits that I topped it off with. Sweet success!

3. Wrap the magic bullet in foil and place it in the freezer. After 15 – 20 minutes, churn it once or twice. Put it back in. Repeat once more. Let it set for 6 hours or overnight.
