Pandan Ice Cream, a fragrant and aromatic flavor that is well loved by Singaporeans and a frequent ingredient in Singaporean cuisine.
Pandan Ice Cream is made with the fragrant and aromatic flavors of pandan leaves (aka screwpine leaves) and coconut milk. It is really easy to make and you do not require an ice-cream maker or machine. You'll also notice that this ingredient, pandan or screwpine, pops up regularly on my blog. This heavenly flavor is well loved by Singaporeans and a frequent ingredient in Singaporean cuisine and desserts. Some unique dishes that I have made using pandan, to name a few, are Pandan Cake, Kaya Coconut Jam and Hainanese Chicken Rice.
Last weekend, I made Pandan Ice cream for dessert at my Singapore National Day "makan" party at home. The familiar flavor of pandan brought back so much memories for my fellow Singaporean friends as well as international friends who have lived in Singapore. And it was perfect having it in the form of ice cream, especially during the Houston summer heat.
