Banana Coconut milk Ice cream with honey as sweetener

A gentle reminder to all "The Cook Eat Delicious Dessert Event with no refined sugar or flour will end in another two days”,  please send in your entries soon.

This ice cream was my first attempt in trying to make an ice cream with coconut milk. I made it almost two years back and was  lying in my drafts for a long time. I made this before I got my ice cream maker so had to blend the coconut milk and banana mixture to prevent crystallizing and to get a nice texture. But the only draw back was it tastes so yummy, I couldn’t resist myself in having few spoons of this mixture each time I blended it.  Very easy to make and tastes absolutely superb. But using the ice cream maker definitely makes a huge difference in the texture of the ice cream. So come summer, when you try all different treats, make sure to try this easy one and let me know how you liked it.

Preparation Time – 15 Minutes

Cooking Time – 10 Minutes

Serves – 4

Ingredients

Coconut milk – 2 Cups

Agar agar powder – 2 Tsp

Honey – 1/4 Cup

Banana – 3 small to medium sized

Vanilla extract – 1 Tsp

Hot  water – 1/4 Cup

Method

1)  Place the agar agar powder in hot water and let this sit for some time. Now heat this mixture and stir it till it dissolves. Remove from heat and set this aside.

2) In a high speed blender pour the coconut milk, banana slices, vanilla extract, honey and agar agar mixture and blend till smooth.

3) Pour the mixture in a container and place it in the freezer. After 2 hours remove the mixture and blend it till smooth and put it back in the freezer once again. Repeat this 2-3 more times and leave it to freeze over night.

4) Remove from the freezer and let this sit in room temperature for 5-10 minutes on a hot day and serve with some toasted nuts.

I have just got an ice cream maker and have not made ice creams. We are waiting for summer. The ice cream looks delicious. In fact so delicious is a brand that is made with coconut milk and is great for kids with dairy allergy.
