Naturals Style Coconut Ice cream

Everyone loves Ice cream and one doesn’t need particular season to enjoy this awesome creation of humankind.  Ice cream comes in different flavor and with passing of time new inventions are done in this tasty field.  Among thousands flavors my favorite is Coconut Ice cream. Especially Naturals Tender Coconut Ice cream. Being lazy yet foodie soul I hated going out to enjoy it so I thought to give it a try at home and bingo! it turned out really awesome.

Here is the recipe step by step but don’t have pictures at present. Will surely put next time I make this Ice cream.

Ingredients

Half liter Milk (you can use any milk, I used cow milk) 
2 cups Tender Coconut pureed in grinder.( you can also grate it if u wish)
Sugar  or honey as per sweetness required ( I have used honey)

Recipe 

Boil the milk on medium flame till it is reduced to half.

Let it cool completely.

Add pureed Coconut, sugar/honey and Milk in blender.

Pour in air tight container and place it in refrigerator.

After 3-4 hours take out container and churn ice cream again. This will reduce ice crystals and make it smooth.

Let it stay overnight in refrigerator.
Bingo! Here comes yummy Coconut Ice cream.

It tastes same as Naturals Coconut flavor. Till today I bought this Ice cream but my recipe has turned out so yummy that I would never ever buy it again.
