Cherry Porridge Ice cream

Recently i have started  replacing honey for sugar, which i find it very good and i don't have the guilt feeling (of using excess sugar) at the back of my mind. This is yet again another recipe which i tried without no sugar and hundred percent honey.
The creaminess of  porridge marries well with the sour cherry and sweet honey. Honey is specifically referred as a key source of treatment in the Islamic Holy text - The Quran, and also in the narrations of The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).  Honey is known to contain the therapeutic contents sugars, vitamins, anti-microbials, among other things.
Ingredients:
Coconut milk-800 ml
Rolled oats-3 tbsp
Honey- 150 ml
Egg yolks-3
Stonned fresh cherries- 1 cup
Vanilla extract- 2 tsp
Fresh Strawberries- 5 to 6
Extra fresh cherries- about half cup
Cornflour-1 tsp
Method:
Beat the egg yolks and cornflour together until pale and creamy. Heat the coconut milk along with oats until gets soft, add the honey and extract stir well, slowly pour the milk mixture into the egg mixture whisking continously. Return the mixture to the pan again, keep stirring in medium to low heat until the mixture coats the back of the spoon. Switch off the flame, let it cool down completely.
Puree the 1 cup of fresh cherries, mix it with half off the milk mixture. Churn the cherry mixture and milk mixture separately in a ice cream machine according to your machine instructions. Put them in two separate container and freeze them for about 1 to 2 hours.
Freeze a deep bottomed glass bowl  5 to 6 hours  before making the ice cream, this step is very important  or icecream will start to melt when you are layering.
Take out both the mixtures from the freezer and start layering. Line the inner side of the bowl with a cling film. Carefully spoon the cherry mixture around the sides and bottom of the bowl as shown in the picture, leaving the middle part hollow( save a small amount of cherry mixture for the topping), cover with a cling film and freeze again for 1/2 an hour.
Fold in the fresh cherries and strawberries into the milk mixture. Remove the bowl from the freezer, spoon the mixture till the rim. Now carefully spoon the remaining cherry mixture on top of it and cover it completely with the cherry mixture. Cover the bowl tightly with cling film and freeze for another 2 to 3 hours.
Before serving remove the bowl from the freezer, pull the cling film on the sides, invert it in a serving plate, top it with more pureed cherries and fresh fruits( optional). Run a knife in warm water, carefully slice the ice cream like wedges serve with more fresh fruits.
Note:
I have used here honey, if you are not comfortable with the flavour of honey, replace it with 200 g of sugar.
