What ingredients do you need for coconut ice cream with cornstarch?

Preparation steps

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine coconut milk, coconut cream, sugar and salt. Stir constantly until the mixture is hot but does not boil. This step allows the flavors to blend and the sugar to dissolve completely.

  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in a little cold water, making sure there are no lumps. Add the dissolved cornstarch to the coconut milk mixture and stir well to combine all ingredients.

  3. Continue cooking over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly. This will take approximately 5 minutes. The cornstarch will act as a thickener, giving the ice cream a smooth, creamy texture.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla extract. Mix well to incorporate the vanilla flavor evenly. Let the mixture cool at room temperature for a few minutes.

  5. As soon as it is at room temperature, cover it with plastic wrap, making sure the wrap touches the surface of the ice cream to prevent a film from forming on the top. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 4 hours or until completely cold.

  6. When it is already cold, take it out of the refrigerator. You will see that it has acquired a thicker, creamier consistency. Remove any film that has formed on the top before continuing.

  7. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker following the manufacturer's instructions. If you don't have an ice cream maker, don't worry. Here's how to make ice cream without one.

  8. If you don't have an ice cream maker, place the mixture in a freezer-safe container. Put it in the freezer and leave it for about 1 hour.

  9. After 1 hour, remove the container from the freezer and, using a hand blender or spoon, vigorously whisk the mixture to break up any ice crystals that have formed. This will help maintain a smooth, creamy texture.

  10. Return the mixture to the freezer and repeat this process every 30 minutes for the next 2-3 hours. This will help to prevent the formation of ice crystals and to obtain a perfect texture.

  11. Once the ice cream mixture has reached the desired consistency, you can enjoy it immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for firmer ice cream.

  12. If you want to add an extra touch of coconut, you can sprinkle shredded coconut over the ice cream just before serving. This will give it a crunchy texture and enhance the coconut flavor.

  13. And there you have it! Your coconut ice cream with cornstarch is ready to be enjoyed.
