We received an ice cream maker attachment for our KitchenAid mixer last Christmas. We also had a spare can of coconut milk left over from a curry recipe. After a few ice cream batches, I began wondering how to use the coconut milk in an ice cream recipe. This is the result. My favorite thing about homemade ice cream is the delicious taste from only a handful of ingredients, so this one is a simple, Philadelphia-style ice cream (no eggs). It has a rich coconut flavor that isn't over-powering. The banana and (optional) rum complement the tropical theme.
