Red Beans Ice~Cream

April 05, 2012
 short post... continuation from previous Sweetcorn Ice-cream  post


The weather is cooling off... the leaves are changing into shades of yellow and soon will be brown... grey dark clouds looking heavy and about to burst... and less sun shiny days...

Its a sure sign of Autumn... and I am HAPPY...

Autumn in Perth ~ is very mild... compared to Eastern States or countries in the Northern hemisphere... I could still indulge in ice-cream... without shivers running through my spine

I chose to make red beans of many favourite flavours among Malaysians... Other flavours would be Sweetcorn, Durian and Jackfruit.

My all time favourite would be all of the above except for durian... I wasn't very keen on Durian or any durian flavours food eversince I was knocked out by XO durian... I had migraine for 2 days ... 
Red beans with coconut milk... combine the 2 together...  ... beautiful flavours.. and I can assure you that one popsicle will not be enough

Have a Wonderful Easter Break

2 cups of cooked red beans
1/2 cup of sugar (more if you have sweet tooth)
1 cup water
1 knotted pandan leaf
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 cup evaporated milk
a pinch of salt
  1. Mix sugar and water and pandan leaf in a small pot and bring to boil for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolve. Set aside. Discard the knotted pandan.
  2. Mix cooked red beans(set aside about 1/4 cup), coconut milk and blend until it has become semi puree.
  3. Add evaporated milk and syrup.
  4. Add a pinch of salt.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Using an ice-cream maker and following manufacturer's instruction, churn the mixture.
  7. If you are using popsicle mould... fill about 2 teaspoon of cooked red beans before adding the ice mixture into the moulds
  8. Freeze 2 hours before serving
Note : Do not leave the mixer unattended.. this mix contain high percentage of water, it will turn icy very fast... just watch the churning blade, once you detect that it is struggling to churn, quickly turn off your ice-cream maker and pour the mix into a container.... to avoid disaster in the kitchen


  1. That is a very interesting ice cream flavor. Beautiful styling!

    My last of the 'ice-cream' mood ;)

    Same here :) in that longish plastic sold in grocery shops
    Background: a floor tile I bought from Bunnings(hardware) :)

  7. I really have to try this recipe - as you know, red bean is my favourite. Did you use shot glasses as the molds? Very good idea!

  8. Lisa, oh i see. I love the colour of the tile! :)
    Btw, I remember the red bean ice cream I used to eat was only 20 sen back then! ;)

  9. WokandSpoon
    Yes... shot glass :)

    now 20c ... Perhaps boleh dapat 2 sugus sweet kot ;)

  10. Great idea of using shot glasses! I love the clicks..kinda mysterious!

  11. Yummy... I love your ice cream recipes, Lisa! Now you're making me wish I owned (and have space in my kitchen cabinet) an ice-cream machine =D But, yes. There really is nothing better than good old Red Bean/Durian/Sweet Corn ais krim potong by the roadside on a hot day in Malaysia. Happy days. I think I want to pass this recipe on to my friend who owns an ice cream machine so she can make this for me haha =D

  12. You probably know my love for red bean... Arrhhh this looks so good. I can eat two of them per serving and it will not last too long in my house. I love red bean ice cream so much! Your photos look beautiful Lisa!!

  13. I totally want this now! Love Asian style ice-cream :)
