Recipe by Nana Lee

This coconut ice cream is a custard based one. The churning time depends on your ice cream maker. The yield is a guestimate. With the leftover egg whites you could make my Hummingbird Bakery Peach Meringue Cake T-R-L Hummingbird Bakery Peach Meringue Cake T-R-L or meringue cookies.
