  • Step 1

    Pre-heat oven to 150°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment and spread the cornflakes evenly. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.

  • Step 2

    On a low heat gently heat the coconut milk until any solid parts of coconut cream have melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Transfer the cooled cornflakes to a large bowl or measuring jug. Pour in 200ml of the cooled coconut milk, followed by the cold water, and stir vigorously. Leave to infuse for 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.

  • Step 4

    Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, collecting the milk in an adequate sized bowl underneath. Gently press any excess milk out of the cornflakes using the back of the sieve.

  • Step 5

    Whisk in the remaining coconut milk, coconut condensed milk, coconut sugar, and sea salt into the cornflake infused milk. Transfer to the provided ice cream tub, filling to the max fill line, then seal with the provided lid. Freeze for at least 24 hours until solid.

  • Step 6

    Remove tub from freezer, remove lid, then place tub in outer bowl. Install paddle into outer bowl lid and lock the lid assembly on the outer bowl. Place bowl assembly on motor base and twist the handle right to raise the platform and lock in place.

  • Step 7

    Select ICE CREAM. Once the programme has finished, using a spoon, create a 4cm wide hole that reaches to the bottom of the tub. Add the 4 tablespoons of cornflakes to the hole and process again using the MIX-IN function.

  • Step 8

    Once processing is complete, remove the ice cream and serve immediately.
