I was assigned by The Mall department store to design a Thai coconut ice cream collection for this Thai coconut event called “ร้อยเรื่องราวมะพร้าวไทย” taken place at The Mall Bang Kapi and The Mall Bang Kae on 31st May to 6th June 2007.

Coconut ice cream does exist in this world a long time ago, especially “I-tim Ka-Ti “, a traditional Thai coconut milk ice cream one. However… “Thai dessert ice cream” doesn’t!

Coconut is the main ingredients of Thai cuisine and dessert, varying in so many methods. For this event, I’ve created three flavours of “Thai dessert ice cream” using coconut in three styles – coconut cream (Kanomburng ice cream), sweeten scraped coconut meat (Kanomsodsai ice cream) and coconut milk (Fakthong Kangbuod ice cream).

Kanomburng

Kanomburng ขนมเบื้อง, a Thai cryspy crepe, is always served with sweet coconut cream mix and Foi Thing ฝอยทอง or can be occasionally decorated with dried plum and raisin.

Kanomsodsai ขนมสอดไส้, another Thai dessert using the coconut as a filling and body. The filling is made of sweet scraped coconut meat, aroma with the Thai fragrant candle. The body is made of coconut milk, flour and a pinch of salt. It’s always wrapped with banana leaves which create a particular packaging for this simple Thai sweet. (I use coconut leaves instead of banana one since it is a coconut event.)

Fakthongkangbuod

I have created this Fakthong Kangbuod ice cream layered with cryspy pumpkin, whipping cream, steamed pumpkin, topped with coconut milk and garnished with mint leaves. The cryspy pumpkin and the steamed one will give a soft and crunchy texture in itself.

Sounds heavenly! I found your site as I’ve been been searching the internet for a special young Thai coconut. The ‘meat’ is fatter than a normal young coconut with a custard texture. Do you know what it’s called? I’ve asked around and get มะพร้าว สังขยา as a reply but I can’t confirm the answer.

I’m not sure what do you exactly mean. The coconut meat is called “เนื้อมะพร้าว”, the young one is called “มะพร้าวอ่อน” whereas the old and hard one is called “มะพร้าวทึนทึก”.

As per the fat in coconut meat, I’m not sure about it though. However the young coconut juice “น้ำมะพร้าว” is less fatty than the coconut milk which is called “น้ำกะทิ”.

Hopefully this could help you somehow.

Thanks for getting back to me. I’d like to find the name so I can purchase one in the local markets. This is the coconut I’m trying to find… http://www.my-thai-friend.com/2009/02/coconut-surprise.html
