This magical, delicious and soft ice cream recipe came about when I decided to experiment with some left over caramel sauce and a tin of coconut cream. This experiment was a huge success and ice cream turned out to be extremely rich and delicious. The self proclaimed connoisseur of good food said it tasted like condensed milk with a tropical twist. And he couldn’t stop eating it. To me, that is nothing short of a rave review. So if you are looking for new ice cream flavor, then I suggest, you give this recipe a try. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
