Fancifully Sweet Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

"Amazingly delicious and tantalizingly sweet coconut ice cream for any occasion! Simple to make with any electric ice-cream maker. Inspired by my experiments with several ice cream recipes and my 2-Qt Cuisinart ice-cream maker. Enjoy!"

Ready In:




  • Prep ice-cream maker by freezing the "freezer bowl" overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly spray baking sheet with cooking spray and evenly spread the coconut over the sheet.
  • Bake coconut for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Watch carefully and stir at 5 minute intervals to prevent from burning.
  • In a medium mixing bowl use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and sugar until sugar has dissolved (about 1-2 minutes). Stir in the cream and coconut extract.
  • Turn on the ice-cream maker and slowly pour the mixture into the freezer bowl. Let mix about 20 minutes, or until the mixture has begun to thicken.
  • Stir in 1 cup of the toasted coconut. Let mix 5 minutes more.
  • The ice cream should be creamy and the coconut fully mixed in, enjoy as-is or freeze in an air-tight container for a few hours to harden to desired consistency.
  • Sprinkle remaining toasted coconut on individual servings.
  • Enjoy! :).

Full time college student majoring in Secondary Education- English. I spend my time maintaining my 4.0, playing computer games with my boyfriend and taking my rat terrier to the park. I really would like to be someone who cooks exotic, healthy and delicious foods and I try to expand my mental cookbook all the time. I learned all I know about cooking from my mom and great grandmother, who is currently 97 and still driving, and still call them if I can't remember specifics for a dish. I have an immune disorder and accompanying hypoglycemia which restricts my diet. ( I have to eat protein every few hours to feel healthy, and also must be careful to eat very little "processed foods." No fast food or microwavable yummies for me. :( )
