Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and heat gently, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves. Boil gently for 10 min without stirring, then remove from the heat and allow to cool slowly.
Mix the cooled syrup with the coconut milk and pour into a shallow freezer container. Cover and freeze for about 3 hours or until semi-frozen around the edges and mushy in the center.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cut up with a knife. Place in food processor and process until smooth. Turn the mixture into a bowl.
Whip the cream until softly peaking and fold into the ice-cream. Stir in coconut if using. Return the mixture to the container and freeze again until solid. Before serving, remove the container of ice-cream to the refrigerator and leave in the main compartment for 30 min or until room temp. Scoop or spoon the ice cream into serving dishes and decorate.
