Soak dried figs in coconut milk for about 1 hour or a bit more (in warm climates, it is better to keep the mixture in the refrigerator). The figs will swell up and become softer. Blend the mixture in a blender. Freeze for about 4-6 hours. Once it is almost frozen, it’s ready to serve. Scoop out the ice cream in serving bowls and serve.
Use fresh lychees with lemon juice and a dash of rosewater instead of figs. It is a lovely, delicate flavour that is refreshing in the summer time. Another variation is to add banana or strawberries with figs.
