This is really good! Easy to put together. The flavour is wonderful with the almond extract. I was a little confused re: the first 2 cups of coconut. The directions didn't mention to add it or leave it out. I did leave it out and only added the remaining 1 cup of coconut. Maybe that is why it really didn't freeze solid. Next time I will put all 3 cups in and try that. But in either case it is very gooda. Thank you for sharing Az G...made this for ZWT5 for the GroovyGastronomes.
