It is getting hot outside and that means it’s time to cool down with frozen desserts. Ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, gelato-sign me up for them all! I love a good frozen treat. My blogging friend, Susan, just came out with a book-The Everything Ice Cream, Gelato, and Frozen Desserts Cookbook and I am so excited to try all of the recipes. Over the weekend I made the Lime and Coconut Ice Cream and it is fabulous! It is the perfect summer treat!

To celebrate Susan’s new book, we are giving away a signed copy of The Everything Ice Cream, Gelato, and Frozen Desserts AND a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment! Yahoo! I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! :)

Susan’s book is filled with 300 recipes that are guaranteed to cool you down and satisfy your sweet cravings. I want to try them all!

Well, this Lime and Coconut Ice Cream is perfection. It is smooth and creamy with the perfect amounts of coconut and lime.

Lime and Coconut Ice Cream

Yield: 2 quarts

This Lime and Coconut Ice Cream is a great summer treat. Cool down with a scoop...or two!


1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
4 large egg yolks
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon finely chopped lime zest
1 teaspoon coconut extract


1. In small sauce pot, combine the milk, coconut, sugar, and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat. Continue simmering until it has reduced to by about a fourth. Cover and allow to steep for one hour. After one hour, strain the coconut milk into a measuring cup. Reheat milk mixture over medium-low heat.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks. Once milk mixture is hot, temper the yolks by adding half of the mixture into the eggs, whisking constantly. Return mixture to saucepan, and heat until thickened.

3. Pour sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and zest into a large mixing bowl, over an ice bath. Strain custard into the cream, stirring until cooled. Add coconut extract, stir, and place in refrigerator until thoroughly chilled, about 5 hours or overnight.

4. Once chilled, add to ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions.

  10. Elizabeth — May 23, 2012 @ 5:27 am

    I love homemade vanilla ice cream with homemade caramel and homemade hot fudge sauce poured on top.

  11. AnnaG — May 23, 2012 @ 5:33 am

    Ice cream is my favorite year-round treat — ice cream, gelato, sorbet, frozen yogurt — doesn’t matter … love them all! I don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer yet but I’ll definitely have to get one if I win, won’t I? :)

  12. Sarah L — May 23, 2012 @ 6:02 am

    I love ice cream and sorbet. I don’t think that I can pick a favorite flavor. Anything lime and coconut flavored is also a plus for me, so I’m definitely going to try this recipe!

  13. heather — May 23, 2012 @ 6:05 am

    I love any sort of ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, etc !!

  14. Marilyn — May 23, 2012 @ 6:13 am

    I love ice cream, but your lime and coconut ice cream might turn out to be my favorite. It looks scrumptious! I have wanted an ice cream maker for so long.

  15. Agnes — May 23, 2012 @ 6:15 am

    My favorite dessert would have to be mint chocolate chip or coffee ice cream!

  16. NancyAP — May 23, 2012 @ 6:17 am

    My favorite treat is a frozen banana. Seriously. I can (and have) eaten ten at a time.

  17. Maddie S — May 23, 2012 @ 6:33 am

    Coffee ice cream! The flavor never gets old, I look forward to it every single night :)

  18. Janda — May 23, 2012 @ 6:37 am

    My favorite frozen dessert is ice cream for sure!

  19. Melissa M. — May 23, 2012 @ 6:41 am

    Banana Ice Cream!

    Favorite frozen dessert — I’m obsessed with Talenti Gelato (I think that’s your fault, actually!) but we just tried Trader Joe’s Lemon and Triple Gingersnap ice cream, and I have a feeling that it’s going to become a top contender!
