Heat Wave ALERT!! Bangalore is reeling under a heat wave right now and temperatures are soaring to mid thirty degrees C. Time to wallow in ice cream!

I have half the mind to move on to a chilled liquid diet until the heat wears off. But you know me, I wouldn't last a day without any food. So I'm doing the next best thing, well... not the next, but the BEST best thing, and that is loading up on ice cream. Chilled sweet perfection.

Everyone who's anyone in a town which has a Natural's Ice Cream Parlour has definitely tried their signature flavor - Tender Coconut. It's even in their logo. My family's favorite flavor. I personally die for their Custard Apple flavor but Gee and Raj love the Tender Coconut. You have to cook what the family will eat. Well, there is no cooking involved here, just like my last recipe of Bircher Muesli (Overnight Oats), which was also chilled, keeping in spirit of Summer. 

Cut to last Saturday, while we were walking back home from one of our ridiculously long weekend walks, we picked up 4 tender coconuts from a local seller. Tender Coconut water is supposed to cool the body, and this heat definitely necessitates cooling. So the plan was to keep the coconut water in the fridge and drink it over the next few days so that we do not reach for any sugary sodas or drinks. 

I was then left with the meat or flesh of 4 coconuts. I don't mind eating it just like that or with a little jaggery, but 4 is a little too much for us to eat in a day. Light bulb moment!! Why don't I try making Tender Coconut Ice Cream! and the idea was born. I've made pop-sickles before, but never an ice cream. We usually just drive down to Natural's and buy a scoop of our favorite flavor. But Sunday was a first in my recipe book. I made Tender Coconut Ice Cream....

I don't own an ice cream maker and I don't know anyone who does, so this ice cream is something anyone can whip up. All you need is a whisk or a spatula. If you have a hand mixer, then you have all the power you need. This ice cream needs only 4 ingredients. Yup, that's it - FOUR!! Cream, Sugar, Coconut Meat and Coconut Water. Since there are only 4 ingredients, make sure you use fresh and the best quality you can find. 

I used fresh medium fat cream. Low fat cream may not work well. The cream needs to be chilled before use, else you may end up with butter instead of whipped cream.Whip the chilled cream until you have soft peaks. Blend a part of the coconut meat with 3/4 cup of coconut water. Fold in with the cream along with powdered sugar and chopped coconut meat. Pour in a freezer safe container and cover loosely with aluminium foil. Every 45-60 minutes for the first 3 hours, remove the ice cream from the freezer and whisk once completely and refreeze. This will prevent it from getting icy in places.
