Coconut Rough Ice Cream

As you know we have experimented with lots of flavours, and quantities in creating the flavours. I came up with this flavour purely by standing in front of our pantry going through items on the shelves calling out different ingredients.

When I mentioned raw cacao powder and desiccated coconut, Glenn and Bella both turned their noses up to the sound of it. I remember saying oh let me just try it out, as it would be like a coconut rough.

Well, enough said. This week’s flavour is actually one of Glenn’s favourites! He tells me that the coconut gives a hint of savoury to this sweet ice cream. I have to be honest, as I cannot taste it, I have to take his word for it. Although my parents like this flavour as well.
