Coconut and Red Bean Ice Cream

Walking around pasar malam/night market I don't enjoy anymore because of the crowd and the parking hassle. Of course I can park further away but these days it is not safe to walk alone even in the broad daylight. Anyway, I really don't see a reason for night market. I stay near a big hypermarket where I buy groceries and what not. But it was a different story those years at the famous SS2 night market. Just five minutes walking distance, in fact at the back row, convenient for a lazy-talk-walk especially to buy the stick home made ice-cream (Nescafe Ice Cream). Those coconut and red bean, jagung/corn, green beans and durian flavours I loved.

Truly its been ages since I eat them and when the craving kicked in, yours truly made her version with the packet coconut milk and boiled red beans with tad bit of sugar - oh-so-yum tasty taste.
Ingredients (more or less depending on how many you like to make and cupcake size)
1/2 box (about 1 cup) coconut milk
1 cup red beans -soak if possible overnight or at least 4 hours
Sugar as needed
Microwave sugar and milk (just to heat through).
Then stir to melt the sugar.
Keep aside.
Simmer red beans with some water till soft.
Remove from heat and combine in sugar.
Pour coconut milk into cupcake cases (depending how much you prefer)
Freeze till hardened.
Bring out and top up with beans.
Freeze and tadaa!!!
Optional; stick in an ice-cream stick before freezing.
