- First make the simple coconut milk ice cream: Mix all of the ingredients in a blender, or using a stick blender, until smooth and creamy. Pour into a freezer-safe container (a lunch box will do) and leave in the freezer for 5 hours, stir every hour to ensure mixture remains creamy. Alternatively use an ice cream maker, if you have one.
- Place the raspberries, coconut flesh, and water in a blender or food processor. Blend on high until smooth to make a puree.
- Place ¼ cup of raspberry puree in each of four glasses and slowly add the soda or mineral water and stir until combined.
