Sili Ice Cream, the Spicy One
Sili Ice Cream looks so delicious but don’t let it fool you !!!!! The strawberry look of the ice cream is so tempting.
Just wait till you taste the cold dessert. Your tongue will feel a tingling sensation, and soon so does your palate and as you finish bowl with that last drop you may be overcome with spice.
Just be sure to have a couple of slices of cucumber at hand to cool your mouth.
It is one of Bicol’s original desserts. Ice cream with a kick of Sili. Invented by the 1st Colonial Grill in 2004, the sili ice cream, whose major ingredients include “siling labuyo” and coconut milk has used the local symbol of Bicol, the chilli, and created a unique ice cream flavour.
You can find it on the menu at……..

Sili Ice Cream Recipe
If you would like to try making Sili Ice cream by yourself at home here is a recipe of a friend of mine from Bicol.
You can find the ingredients easily in the local market or your local supermarket.
The Sili Ice Cream Recipe is made of coconut cream and a little crushed fresh Siling Labuyo,( Birds Eye Chillies) which are hot and taste good in the ice cream.
It’s hot but its cold! That’s how Sili Ice Cream tastes. Try out this Sili Ice Cream Recipe and let us know in the comments below how it went.
Now let’s get down to work.
For the Ingredients:
1 cup thick cream (or an all purpose cream), chilled
1 cup chilled coconut cream
1 cup chilled condensed milk, adjust for preferrred sweetness
3 cups ripe strawberries, chilled and pureed
a pinch of salt
1 tsp fresh Siling Labuyo, chopped and crushed in a mortar. Include the seeds.
*** You can use canned coconut cream from the supermarket or better still, go to the market and buy fresh coconut cream.
How to Make
Chop and crush the siling labuyo using a mortar and pestle or blender, until they become a paste. Use as many chillies as you like. More chillies = more spicy.
Mix together the thick cream, coconut cream, condensed milk, sugar, pureed strawberries, salt and siling labuyo paste in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer until smooth pink cream for 5 to 10 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and place it in your freezer for around 6 hours or more until solid and the texture of ice cream.
Then Serve and enjoy your creation.
