Homemade Vegan Dragon fruit ice cream

After my successful attempt at making homemade yogurt-dragon fruit ice cream, I attempted to make one without any milk but with the same creamy texture. So this recipe is good for vegans as it uses coconut cream from coconut milk. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.
Although it is a much healthier version than your store-bought ice creams, bare in mind it still has fat and sugar in it. So treat it as you would any other dessert and eat it sparingly.


250 gm coconut milk (santan)
1 large dragon fruit (frozen)
1/2 pineapple (frozen)
1/4 sugar (add more if you like your ice cream sweet)
Some ice cubes


Put your coconut milk in the refrigerator and use only the cream (the part which floats on top of the milk) - don't discard the watery part, as this would be good for your smoothie.
Put the coconut cream, fruit and sugar in a blender and blend till it is smooth. Add more sugar if you like your ice cream sweet.

Put into a cake tin and chill in freezer for 1 - 2 hours. Take it out and run a fork through it well. Back in freezer another hour and repeat churning process.

It would take about 4 - 5 hours before you can enjoy this creamy and smooth ice cream but it is worth the wait. Seriously!
