How to prepare Ice Kenkey

Ice kenkey is a popular Ghanaian dessert made from kenkey, a steamed dumpling made from Fante and Ga kenkey, which are made of maize, with the sweet flavor from milk and sugar.

Like other beverages made in Ghana, such as Burkina, Fula and sobolo, ‘ice kenkey’ has remained one of Ghana’s finest beverages.

Mostly taken with bread or any pastry, it is served on the street and at events such as engagements, funerals and sports activities.

Kenkey is popular in Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Togo, and western Benin, but it also was exported to Jamaica and Guyana. In Jamaica, it is called dokono; in Guyana, konkee. In Trinidad, it is called paime.

Kenkey used in preparation is low in fat, with a high content of complex carbohydrates, protein and fibre. This makes it an excellent food option for those who are looking to lose weight or those who want to maintain their current weight.

Low-fat diets may reduce the risk of heartburn, help people lose weight, and improve cholesterol levels.
