Recipe by LoriLou
This is a merger of several recipes I found while researching for a special Mothers day dinner. Coconut is Mom's favorite ice cream. This version is easy, not too sweet, smooth, creamy and quite tasty. It might be good with some coconut stirred in at the last. The cook time is freeze time and is variable depending on your machine. Prep time does not include chill time for the coconut milk.

Yum!! I substituted the heavy cream with half and half and used a mixture of about 2/3 rum 1/3 coconut extract in place of the malibu, as I didn't have any of that. Stirred in chopped up pieces of Mounds before putting it in the freezer to harden. This is creamy and delicious!!
- 1 (13 1/2 ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk, chilled
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon malibu coconut rum
