Too Much Food

 

It’s Been A While (and an ice cream recipe)

At Home: Coconut Taro Ice Cream

I’ve been horribly lax in my postings here (last post was about Halloween cookies!), but I’ve had good reasons. In an effort to alleviate some health problems I’ve had since my university days, I’ve been seeing an acupuncturist. Along with the acupuncture treatments, my doctor had me changing my diet from week to week in order to try to pinpoint some food allergies (at one point I was only allowed to eat potatoes, white rice, cauliflower, cabbage and chicken broth and drink water for a week).

I guess all the diet changing put my body at a weak point and I ended up developing shingles the week before Thanksgiving. I could barely move my left side and was infected with a horrible rash and stabbing pains in my muscles for a couple of days. After an emergency run to the doctor’s office on Thanksgiving morning, a doctor was able to diagnose it and prescribe some medication. Thankfully, I caught it at an early stage and I’m slowly on the mend.

At Home: Coconut Taro Ice Cream

My appetite has been kind of poor lately, which is a bit depressing (I’ve been reading food blogs and there are so many holiday recipes I’d love to try), but I was able to make this super-easy coconut taro ice cream recipe for guests on Thanksgiving. Combining full-fat coconut milk (the good stuff), sweetened condensed milk, and prepared sweetened taro chunks, this ice cream combines two of my favorite asian-inspired flavors, coconut and taro. It was really well-received and when asked how I made it, I felt almost guilty about claiming I came up with this recipe . . . it was just a lucky result of throwing a couple of languishing cans I had in the pantry together.

Coconut Taro Ice Cream
What you’ll need:

  • 1 can (13.5 oz.) full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (15 oz.?) prepared sweetened taro chunks (can substitute homemade sweetened taro if wary about purchasing the canned variety . . . perhaps a future experiment)
The Procedure:

Combine all ingredients in blender and pulverize until well-blended.

Chill thoroughly.

Freeze according to ice cream maker manufacturer’s instructions.

Easy!

    Yup, couldn’t agree more. And I’d like to add that you’ve got a great colour scheme on your site, I suffer with colour blindness and many webmasters don’t give us a second thought!

    楼主的文笔实在用笔墨难以形容。。。熄了灯。。。打着赤脚。。。将整个人都倦在大班椅里。。。喝着清茶看那一个个帖子在论坛之间时隐时现。。。记得一位高人说。。。好帖子与垃圾帖的区别在于。。。好帖子越看越暖。。。而垃圾帖。。。越看越寒。。。我呢。。。一开始就和普通人一样。。。不相信真有一种帖子可以让人学会忘记烦恼和所有不开心的事情。。。所以。。。我选择看垃圾帖。。。选择垃圾帖的人。。。一般都比较冷静。。。

    Hello there! Happy Thanksgiving! .! :) :)
    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every yr I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, as it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Unsurprisingly, these stories are mostly about family, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. … . – –
