Coconut cream and vegan ice cream

+2
−0

I was quite surprised to look for coconut cream (reduced coconut milk) recipes for vegan ice cream, especially an Indian kulfi with Bananas/Mango/Durian and not finding many results...

Why?...

Is coconut cream not suitable to make vegan ice cream (especially with grinded fruit)?

Coconut cream is a completely valid ingredient to make ice cream with.

I've made such recipes before - they're not at all bad, if with an unsurprisingly strong coconut taste. I'd suggest looking up 'coconut milk' recipes instead of 'coconut cream' recipes and just using coconut cream instead of coconut milk.

Here's one example of a recipe that does exactly that: https://minimalistbaker.com/vanilla-bean-coconut-ice-cream/ along with the (unsurprising) claim that

Coconut cream tends to yield creamier results due to the higher fat content.

While I've never made kulfi before, I have made (homemade) condensed coconut milk before (which was fantastic), so a more 'traditional' kulfi (I gather the starting point for this isn't far off extra-condensed condensed milk) shouldn't be a problem either.

For an easier/faster/Westernised Kulfi (essentially somewhere between frozen condensed milk and frozen custard), 'custard-style' coconut milk ice cream recipes also exist, so, as per the above recipe, simply using coconut cream instead of coconut milk is a completely valid approach.
