Method

  1. 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.
  2. Place the raspberries, coconut flesh, and water in a blender or food processor. Blend on high until smooth to make a puree.
  3. Place ¼ cup of raspberry puree in each of four glasses and slowly add the soda or mineral water and stir until combined.
  4. Top with a scoop or two of the simple coconut milk ice cream. Garnish with fresh mint or shaved coconut.
  5. Store remaining puree in an airtight container in the fridge and the leftover ice cream in the freezer.
