On a hot day like today, you should be having some Peaches and Coconut ice-cream

Home-made frozen desserts are easier to make than you think, and way healthier than supermarket options. Here’s an outstanding recipe.

Blending fruits with cream or coconut cream is the best way to make ice-cream at home. The natural sugars in the fruit are enough to sweeten the ice cream, or one can always add some honey, or a dash of sugar. Using flavourful and fully ripe fruits is advisable when making frozen desserts at home as the flavours are more pronounced this way.

(4 servings)

300g or 2- Large fully ripe peaches
200ml- Coconut cream or 200g tender coconut flesh
1 to 2 tbsp- Honey (or as required)
1 tbsp- Coconut flakes or chips (you could lightly dry-roast them, too)

* Halve the peaches and peel the thin skin as you would peel the skin of parboiled tomatoes. Fully ripe softened peach would allow you to do that.

* Chop and freeze in a container. Freeze the coconut cream in an ice tray to make it easy to blend. Freeze both of these ingredients for at least two hours.

* Empty both the contents into a heavy duty blender and blend till completely smooth and silky.

* Scoop out the semi-frozen peaches and cream dessert into glasses or mugs.

* Sprinkle coconut flakes over the dessert, and serve right away.
