COCONUT MILK AND MANGO ICE CREAM / AISKRIMU WA MNAZI NA MAEMBE

From Kilifi now to Malindi. Through all the way I could see Mango and coconut trees welcoming us on the highway. I bought mangoes and coconut from a local farmer. Made use of them by making this dessert. Kenyan dishes are very simple and easy to prepare and so is this ice cream with the coconut milk and pureed mangoes with the cinnamon flavor.
