Dr. Varsha Shah


  • 1 cup fruit pulp/chunks [any seasonal fruit of choice].
  • 1 cup + 5 to 6 tbsp coconut milk.
  • 1 tbsp powdered rolled oats.
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts, soaked for 4 hours in 1 cup water.
  • 3/4th cup dates, pitted, soaked in ¼-1/2 cup water for 10 minutes.


  • Heat 1 cup of coconut milk along with the oats powder on low flame, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens. This will take about 5 – 7 minutes. Allow to cool. Keep aside.
  1. Drain and rinse the soaked cashew nuts. Place them in a blender a long with dates and blend, adding 5 – 6 tablespoons of coconut milk, a little at a time until you obtain a smooth paste.
  2. Add the thickened coconut milk and the fruit pulp/ chunk and blend well until smooth.
  3. Pour into a container and freeze for 7 to 8 hours- only until partially set and the ice cream is of semi- soft texture.
  4. Take it out from the freezer and blend again. Freeze again for a minimum of 8 hours.
  5. Take it out from the freezer 20 minutes before serving.

Storage/ Shelf life:

In the freezer for up to a month.


Use coconut milk judiciously and occasionally as it lacks fibre and is high in fat.
