Chilled Coconut Soup

Recipe by AlainaF
READY IN: 55mins




  • Pour the milk in to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stir in the coconut, lower the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Spoon the mixture into a food processor and process until smooth. This may take a while--up to 5 minutes--so pause frequently and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Rinse the pan to remove any coconut that remains, pour in the processed mixture and add the coconut milk.
  • Stir in the chicken stock (homemade if possible) cream, salt, pepper, and sugar.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally then lower the heat and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Reserve a few cilantro leaves to garnish, then chop the rest finely and stir into the soup.
  • Pour the soup into a large bowl, let it cool, then cover and put into the refrigerator until chilled.
  • Just before serving taste the soup and adjust the seasoning as chilling will alter the taste.
  • Serve in chilled bowls, garnished with cilantro leaves.
