The story goes – after a filling ramen dinner and some light shopping, Le BFF and I chanced upon this frozen coconut stall (which I misinformed her as Coconut Froyo). I was excited and I suggested sharing one, since we were both full. However, the generous people at Husk gave out sampling portions and she picked up one for each of us. After we had a mouthful of the creamy coconut-y soft serve, she asked, “are you still sure you want to share?”
That quickly escalated to one full-size portion each, to which we did not regret a single bit. To be diet prudent, we picked the smallest cup and additional topping of mangoes, because mangoes and coconuts are best friends too.
Served in a fairly large turquoise paper cup, Husk’s froco (frozen coconut) is what you’d expect if you took sweet juicy coconut flesh, macerate them, freeze them and squeeze them out of a soft serve. The soft serve is creamy and decadent, but not cloying, and the coconut aroma is intense and not for the faint-hearted. It is a great treat and alternative to ice cream for the lactose-intolerant, and with the fruits and parfait version, I believe you can say goodbye to llao llao and head straight to Husk. This is fast becoming my favourite frozen treat place and I can’t wait to have more. However, logically, I’d ask you to be mindful of thinking this as overtly healthy – remember, coconut milk, which is high in saturated fat, comes from coconut flesh. While there has been rising popularity in consuming coconut oil for health, one should still consume this in moderation.
