Opening of Gourmande ice-cream bar : coconut paradise isle-cream

The white one is coconut isle-cream, the yellow is a saffron banana sherbet. Leftovers of dragon fruit and strawberries as decoration.

The sweets are congolais.

Coconut isle-cream :

That’s a coconut flavored (with dry coconut) creme anglaise, with honey and Kirsch cherry liquor.
The only complicated thing is to find the ice-cream maker. Yeah, I’m messy, it was in the bottom of the closet for Winter, but which closet ? Murphy’s law : it’s always in the last one you check. So now I will have to reorganize it all. I found my old kakigori maker too, so if it works, you’ll see it soon…

Banana, just frozen and mixed, flavored with saffron, churned or not in the ice-cream maker, frozen again (if I had done it in advance).

What was left ? Coconut flesh rehydrated in milk and egg white. You combine them, add a little sugar.

Bake till it’s golden and a serious smell of caramel asphixiates you. That gives you, what we call “congolais” (Congolese) in France.

Coconut ice cream :
(1/2 liters = 4 servings)
1 serving : Cal 154.1 F8.4 C14.3 P4.7

    • Naming the dish is a big part of the game.
      I could have dedicated it to a celebrity. Coco Chanel ? Not appetizing. Or to an event. France eliminated from World Cup, that would be “the last cocorico”. Too early ? That will come, patience. So that was a random pun.
