Do u think if I want to do other variation from coconut gelato, e.g green tea, would it work if I change the coconut milk to fresh milk and add some green tea powder? Thanks :)

yochana said...

Yes, May...you can do that.

Thank u, yochana. U really are a big help in my baking adventures. Since started reading ur blog, ur huge collection of goodies had me fell in love with baking. Still so much to learn from u.

enthubake said...

Yochana, which brand of non-dairy whipping cream do you use and where can I buy it ? What is the difference between non-dairy and dairy whipping cream ? Thanks a million.

yochana said...

Hi enthubake,

For non-dairy whipping cream, all brands are the same. I use Pride Topping / Value Pride.

Dairy Whip cream has 35% fat and they are more creamy and delicious.

Hi Aunt Yochana,
I tried your Coconut Gelato last week and the result was simply DIVINE! Thank you very much for this recipe. Here is the picture I posted on my blog: http://passionbaker.blogspot.com/2008/05/crazy-busy-week.html.

Btw, like what May asked, if I replace the coconut cream with green tea powder & milk, will it be creamy? I want it to be creamy like this coconut gelato. What other kind of dairy products can I use? Thank you in advance.

Jane.

yochana said...

Hi Jane,

I've not tried green tea yet but I think it should be nice.

Try black sesame seeds (blended).

Passionate About Baking said...

Hi Aunt Yochana,
I heed your suggestion and use Black sesame for my ice cream using your recipe. It was really really GOOD! Bravo & kudos to you!! I thought I wanted it to be more creamy, so i added some coconut cream into it and it tasted like black sesame coconut! Hahaha... I'll try again next time. You can view my ice cream at http://passionbaker.blogspot.com/2008/06/black-sesame-ice-cream.html. Thank you very very much!

aunty,
juz want to know that after adding in the whipped cream, we put the ice cream into the freezer and let it set till firm? do we need to bring it out to whip again and then let it freeze again? thanks.

Aunty Yochana said...

delia,

no need lah.. but if you want to add in more aeration into the coconut ice-cream to make it light, you can take it out and whip it again then freeze it and serve.

delia said...

Aunty, do we need to double boil the egg yolk mixture till it thickens? I din cook till it thickens. I made some last nite but it seems that there's ice when you eat it.

green said...

Shernise said...

Hi Aunty,

Im new to here as i just saw your blog today, was thinking of making this for family as it sounds easier to make than the others (Im a beginner in kitchen)Sorry to ask a question which i think it should be a very silly question, what is double boil the egg yolk mixture means? And also if i feel like making a chocolate type, is it possible to change some of the ingredients to make it out? Sorry for the silly questions. Thanks alot Aunty !

Regards,
Shernise

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Shernise,

double boil - putting a pot into a bigger pot with some simmering hot water.

This is to prevent the egg yolks from getting cooked too fast.

rgds

Shernise said...

Hi Aunty,

If i want to make this to chocolate type isit possible? if possible, can tell me what ingredients i sld change and how much?

Regards
Shernise

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Shernise,

You have to add in cocoa powder. Stir into the cooking liquid.

Hi Aunty,

1) Is is poosible to add in mango flavouring (powder or liquid) in order to get mango ice-cream? How much should I add?

2) Is coconut milk a must? Can be replaced by fresh milk like HL? Just wondering if the taste is the same, as fresh milk is healthier.

Thanks a lot!
JJ

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi JJ,

Definitely you can sub with fresh milk. If you want to add in mango, just add in mango puree into the mixture. Proportion is up to you whether you like more milky or more mango.

Thanks Aunty for your reply. May I know where to get Mango Puree?

JJ

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi JJ,

You can either get it from sun lik or phoon huat.

Yan said...

dear aunty, i love coconut gelato, ice cream anything with coconut. thanks for posting this up.

i got a silly qn to ask about this recipe. do i need to buy those ice cream machine to do this one?

sun lik has this cheap ice cream machine. i was so tempted to buy but the cheap machine doesnt have condenser and i would need to put the bowl in the fridge for 36 hours. my freezer is at the bottom and it doesnt have space for that bowl.

so do i need machine or i can just pop the mixture into foam container and chill it overnight?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi yan

i also have something like that but it's another brand and I don't like it.

next time i use my ice-cream machine to make some ice-cream for you o.k.

rgds

Yan said...

making ice cream using a machine takes several hours right?

aiyoh. aunty, you make it and post here, i can only salivate, go to 7-11 and buy cornetto at most.

ive been to ntuc and cold storage. none of them sell non-dairy whipping cream. looks like ive to go to sunlik or phoon huat. go there, cannot save money. sure buy more than what i need.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi yan,

that's the problem with women.

rgds

Yan said...

Hi Aunty.

Just came back from phoon huat. spent $60, when all i wanted was just some non-dairy whipping cream.
Hahaha :)

i've put them mixture in the fridge to let it be firm. hopefully i can try some after dinner :)

i tasted it earlier and it was yummy, but a tad too sweet. the whipping topping from PH is already sweet. maybe i can cut down on the sugar next time. so excited. i cant wait :)

thanks to your wonderful non machine gelato recipe :)
