Servings 8 people


  • 1 medium saucepan
  • 1 cutting board and knife
  • 1 ice cream maker of your choice don't forget the ice and rock salt


  • 2 inches taro root peeled and cut into blocks
  • 2 cups milk
  • cups white sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups whipping cream


  • Cut your taro root to get a 2-inch block (peeled).
  • Place your saucepan on medium heat and add all the ingredients listed from top to bottom. Use a whisk to ensure the sugar dissolves.
  • Continue to whisk as the heat comes to a slight boil. This ensures your milk doesn't burn the bottom and it is all brewed evenly. Once your milk mix has come to a boil, reduce heat and whisk about 10 more times.
  • Remove from heat and let cool with taro roots still in the mix.
  • Once cool, remove the root blocks from the mix and add to your ice cream mixer. Use your device instructions to freeze into ice cream. Voila! Add strawberries, chocolate syrup, fresh raspberries, or nuts.
