Top Review by Iceland

I used light coconut milk, 2 bananas and 2 spoons of curd to make it thicker. The consitency after the icecream machine had worked with it for 20 minutes was very soft but i but it in the freezer and took it out 15 minutes before serving the night after. It was just perfect! We put some chocolate sauce ver it and served with fresh blondies. Thank you for this great recipe, from now on i am going to use coconutmilk a lot in icecream making! Made for Ramadan Tag Game 2009
