Recipe by Buster's friend
Smooth, cool, rich & delicious. Adapted from Taste of Thai. Most of cook time is 2 hours chilling. I prefer mine smooth but the original recipe did suggest layering this with granola as well. We use mixtures of whatever fruits we have in the house & haven't gone wrong yet. We also like toasted coconut sprinkled on top.
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 13 1⁄2 ounces coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons butter, chilled
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 4 kiwi fruits, peeled & sliced
- 1 1⁄2 cups bananas, sliced
- 1 1⁄2 cups strawberries, sliced
