This summer, my family visited Kerala, and my kid got addicted to the fresh and naturally sweet taste of tender coconut. I let him enjoy nature’s bounty as much as he wanted. We tried tender coconut smoothie and pudding while we were in India. I made this ice cream as a fun treat for my kid when we returned. It is not easy to get fresh ones here in the US but look for tender coconut in Asian markets or Whole Foods. Look for young tender coconuts that have coconut meat inside. Many tender coconuts just have water. This is egg-less ice cream, is full of coconut flavor, smooth, and delightful. I made this with an ice cream maker, but you can also make this a no-churn ice cream recipe. Just whip the cream first and gently fold in the rest of the ingredients, and freeze.

Scoop out the tender coconut meat with a spoon and put it into a blender. Add 1/2 cup of tender coconut water and make it into a fine puree. Add more coconut water if it thickens. You will not need to strain this mixture. It will be creamy and smooth. Allow it to chill in the refrigerator.
Set the bowl of the ice cream maker to chill in the freezer as per package instruction( best if it is left to chill overnight).
Combine condensed milk, coconut cream, coconut extract, whipped cream, and tender coconut puree, and pour into the ice cream maker.
Churn the mixture till set or till you attain the desired consistency and thickness. Mine took about 25 minutes.
 At this stage, it will be soft ice cream, and you can serve immediately or remove and transfer to the freezer until it is firm( for two hours).  Enjoy!
