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! But, let’s talk a little bit about this Lime and Coconut Ice Cream. If you read our blog on a regular basis, you know we are obsessed with all things 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.
