Honey Semifreddo

A divine frozen dessert made with honey, coconut cream, and eggs. An absolute delight!

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds

  • 1 egg

  • 4 egg yolks

  • ½ cup honey

  • 1 ¼ cups coconut cream

  • Mandarin orange slices (or any fresh fruit)


Place almonds in a skillet over med-low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Let cool. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Sprinkle bottom with toasted almonds. Bring water to a simmer in the bottom of a double boiler. Place egg, egg yolks and honey in the top of the double boiler, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. With a handheld mixer, beat the mixture until pale yellow and thick, 10-15 min. Remove from heat and let cool.

Whip coconut cream until thick peaks form. Whip cream and cooled honey mixture together. Transfer to the loaf pan, smooth top and freeze at least 3 hours. When ready to serve, turn dessert out onto a platter. Cut into slices and serve with mandarin oranges. Store leftovers in freezer.
