"I needed to use up some frozen passion fruit and stumbled across this recipe on the dairy website. This was a really lovely ice-cream, the coconut milk made it taste very tropical, so creamy and refreshing. I can't wait to make this one again. Note : Freeze ice cream churn for at least 24 hours before making ice cream helps the ice cream to churn quicker."
