You can get it in natural food stores. It's clear. Called "Cocunut water" and is different from coconut cream. Basically if you cracked a fresh coconut open, the clear liquid inside it is coconut water.


You can add coconut flakes into the icecream instead.

I use coconut milk when making curries, but that is sooooo full of fat. This would be too, considering it's all nuts, though, so I suppose it's no difference.

In either case, I'm never going raw.

This is a sorbet.

I'd say yes - except that most sorbets use a simple syrup. And simple syrup requires heat to get the sugar to dissolve in water. (At the very least, you'd need to pour boiling water into the sugar.) Plus, sugar probably can't be considered raw - since it's cooked in processing.

The recipe above works because the fruit used (dates) contains a lot of natural sugar. Sugar is critical in making frozen desserts because it helps in crystal formation - and depresses the freezing point of water to keep the ice from becoming rock solid in the freezer. (The salt in the recipe also helps with that.)

Dates are also very dense, with little water. Most fruits have so much water and so little sugar that you can't really use them on their own in an ice. You need to add sugar.

Ice making is very tricky chemistry. You have to have the water/sugar or water/sugar/fat balance just right or you end up with something truly awful.
