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!!

Excellent recipe. I just purchased an ice cream freezer a few days ago and this was my first recipe. I actually used light coconut milk and half half to make the recipe a little lighter and it worked great. I also added some flaked coconut at the end for some extra flavor and texture. This is just like the ice cream at my favorite thai restaurant!

I love this recipe. I added some almond extract and pistachio nuts. Tasted better then the expensive stuff from the store. I also made the recipe just as is and love it. Thank you LoriLou for sharing this recipe.

This was great! It was our first ice cream in our new machine. We used half and half instead of heavy whipping, upped the sugar to 2/3 cup and used between 1/3-1/2 a tablespoon of imitation coconut extract instead of the rum. We could have maybe used a little less of the extract, as it was very coconuty, but overall still wonderful. It was as good as the stuff I had on the beach in Mexico!

Absolutely delicious! I substituted 2% milk for the heavy whipping cream and used lite coconut milk rather than regular. It is probably not as creamy as the original but much healthier! I didn't have coconut rum on hand so just used a bit of coconut extract. Topped with toasted coconut... mmm blissful!

I also used half and half, and light coconut milk. I also added a few drops of coconut extract and 1/2 cup flaked, sweetened coconut for the last 5 minutes. It was excellent! Served it with Magic Shell, yum! Thanks for the perfect recipe!

This was deeeelish! I had some coconut milk leftover from another recipe in the back of my fridge and it was CRYING OUT to be used! I did have to cut the recipe in half (which didn't effect anything but the quantity of my ice cream) because my little churn only makes a pint. I didn't have anything but half-n-half, but it worked fine. After it froze most of the way, I stuck it back in the freezer to firm up a bit more. Absolutely a tropical treat! Thanks so much for posting a great recipe! I will definately be using this again!
