Rid,
I am curious on where you got the pandan leaves from? It must have been really expensive to buy it in UK. My garden "melambak" with pandan.

Can I make the ice-cream without the maker? I don't have the maker and we rarely have ice-cream.

I just love the pandan and coconut flavors together, the best of Asian tastes.

That's what I call unusual and fantastic ice cream!

Unfortunately I never even saw pandan leaves even in our local Asian market where they sell their fresh produce; but I did have the pleasure of receiving pandan paste from a blogger friend from Malaysia (sorry to say it leaked all over the package)...the aroma was incredibly beautiful!

I am still so curious to try this flavor of ice cream. I love pandan leaves, but I have only used it to cook savory in SL cooking. The ice cream looks so creamy and delicious and I love your playful photos with the cones. :)
