Ice cream for dessert is a no brainer, but today we’re spicing it up a bit with hints of cardamom and cloves. And yes, we will be using rice as a fluffy and filling vehicle to add some carbs to our fat. This indeed will not be a “light” dessert. Making it perfect for the winter time when we can use a bit of extra comfort.
Using rice in desserts isn’t groundbreaking. We have the Thai sticky rice with mango and rice pudding from China. It’s about time to add another rice dessert to the collection with this spiced rice & coconut ice cream combination. Topping it of with roasted hazelnuts to compliment the coconut and spices.
I used coconut ice cream from professor grunschnabel. Their coconut ice cream is creamy and full of coconut flavour. And no, we’re not sponsored, this is my honest opinion. If you can’t get your hands on it any creamy coconut ice cream will do!
Feel free to play around with the spices, maybe try adding a bit more cinnamon or swapping out the cloves for all spice. The options are endless. I used passionfruit and persimmon but you could easily go for something else. Good suggestions are mango, banana or apple.
Now it’s your turn to create your own rice cream dessert. Let me know what you’ll be pairing it with by tagging me on instagram or leaving me a comment.
