Recipe: Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream was so simple to make and I did not have to use an ice cream maker. Do use good quality canned coconut milk for this recipe. The milk should be white in colour.  Coconut milk also comes in cream or block form but this is not suitable.

400ml Mai Siam Coconut Milk
225g sugar ( 1 cup)
2tbsp sweet desiccated coconut
200ml water; 228g whipping cream
300g gula melaka or palm sugar
150ml water
Fortune cookies (crush 1 per serving)
