I was born and raised in Singapore for the past 20 years, yet the sweltering heat and humidity is something I still cannot get used to. It seems that with the WFH lifestyle in full swing, it’s not unusual that a daily afternoon routine now means a quick jaunt to the freezer for a pint of refreshing ice cream. If you’re torn between staying best friends with dessert or somehow miss queuing up for an L-sized cup of coconut shake, this collab between The Coconut Club x Birds of Paradise is something to go coco-nuts for.
This collab was launched as part of The Coconut Club Kakis initiative, where The Coconut Club aims to reimagine familiar flavours of our Singaporean heritage. They have come together with their first partner, Birds of Paradise, to introduce a Coconut Sorbet (S$17), deemed a match made in gelato heaven that is now available for pre-order.
Satisfy your coconut shake cravings and sneak in a quick dessert before dinnertime with a bowl of sorbet made with The Coconut Club’s cold-pressed coconut milk and crafted artfully by gelato veterans Birds of Paradise. If that doesn’t sound like a paradisiacal haven, I don’t know what does.
Those who are interested in exploring The Coconut Club’s variety of Singaporean flavours beyond sorbet can pre-order a meal to go before dessert. They offer choices based on party size, with options ranging from Feast for 2 (S$42) to a 5-pax Family Feast (S$150), consisting of a variety of local delights such as Ayam Goreng Berempah, Kacang Panjang, homemade otah and more.
If you’re hoping to treat yourself and the environment at the same time, Birds of Paradise pledges itself on taking a balanced approach to sustainability by committing to various eco-friendly initiatives. You can enjoy a heavenly pint of gelato knowing that they use reusable ice packs and biodegradable cups and cutlery. This means that you can take your pick from Earl Grey & Lemongrass (S$17), Sea Salt Hojicha (S$17), or more knowing that it’ll taste good and do good at the same time.
