Ingredients & Kitchen Tools I Use


Combine coconut milk, palm sugar, white sugar, and salt in a pot and cook over medium heat until all the sugar is dissolved. Stir in coconut water and vodka, if using.

Add the young coconut meat and jackfruit, or any other add-ins, during the last 1-2 minutes of churning.

The vodka helps prevents the ice cream from freezing too hard. It is optional and you're welcome to use other techniques for creating scoopable ice cream. You can also just let the ice cream sit on the counter or in the fridge to soften before serving.
