13:18 01/09/2012 Unbearable heat made us skedaddle away from the shore of Samila Beach, in Songkhla,Thailand after a compulsory photo op with the famous bronze mermaid. We took refuge from the big trees nearby trying to ease off the heat that made us awfully weary. While cooling down, a kiddo passed by carrying a mixed creamy desert on a plastic cup. Our eyes glowed and next thing we knew was following his trail and bump the Coconut Ice Cream (ไอศครีมมะพร้าว) peddler.
Just right on time, no one keeps the vendor busy and we hastily jump in and took our orders.
We’re so lucky as we didn’t much take an effort to hunt this tasteful treat since it can be bought on any street in Thailand. We heard that version in the Southern province are more special because of its extra toppings as compared to ones in Bangkok.
The extra toppings are semi toasted bread cubes, diced dried fruit, sweetened transparent beans, and peanuts.
The friendly Coconut Ice Cream (ไอศครีมมะพร้าว) peddler in Samila Beach, Songkhla Thailand candidly posed with Summer before bunching up our dessert.
Assembling this treat is easy as 1 2 3. She put some partially toasted bread first, followed by a scoop of Coconut Ice Cream then different toppings. Voila! our 30 Baht Coconut Ice Cream Special.
The Ice cream was so sweet and goes well with semi toasted salty bread. In which balances it’s sweetness. While the toppings intensify the flavor of the ice cream. Yum! This dessert lowered down the heat on our body and same time relieves our grumbling stomach.
Coconut Ice Cream (ไอศครีมมะพร้าว) is one of the famous desserts in Thailand and one should not be missed when visiting the country.
