We had never made any sort of ice cream before, but we really wanted to try this recipe since it had my favorite (coconut) and Albert's favorite (mango) mixed together. We made it according to the directions and the texture was good. The flavor would have been really good except it was WAY too sweet. Next time we're going to put maybe 1/4 of powdered sugar in there. It tasted like it was supposed to be frosting or something. Much too sweet for ice cream.
Dairy Free Tropical Semifreddo
1 – 15 ounce can Cream of Coconut
¾ cup powdered sugar
¾ cup mango nectar
Refrigerate the can of Cream of Coconut and mango nectar overnight. Place a large mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 5 minutes before making the semifreddo.
Put the cold Cream of Coconut to the cold mixing bowl and add the powdered sugar. The Cream of Coconut will be partially solidified at the top and more watery at the bottom, this is normal as the cream part rises to the top and gets more solid. Beat on high speed until the Cream of Coconut gets very thick (like lightly whipped cream) add the mango nectar and mix until well blended. Spoon semifreddo into a plastic or glass container with a snug fitting lid, smooth it down to compact it and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Semifreddo will be a soft, not solid frozen mixture. For best result serve in cold dishes or coconut halves that have been placed in the freezer for a couple hours.
