Lime and Coconut Ice Cream

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

2 quarts


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

  1. 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? 🙂

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. I also follow you on Facebook… btw I don’t like the term follow.. I enjoy your posts.. works for me! And I do enjoy your posts very much on all types connections.

  6. I love any sort of ice cream…it is my favorite dessert. I really like the pistachio ice cream from a little ice cream shop down by our cabin in Clearlake, IA! My friends mom makes a pistachio dessert that is awesome too!


  7. Any kind of ice cream is my favorite – can’t get enough of the stuff! Even after working in an ice cream store during high school – and eating it every day – still love it!

  8. I had a delicious salted caramel ice cream last week, and that’s my current favorite! My long-time favorite is pistachio ice cream. It’s been my favorite since I was about 5 years old.

  9. I like to make vanilla ice cream because you can do so many things with it, besides it just tasting good all by itself!

  10. I love mint chocolate chip ice cream!
    I already followed TP&TP on FB but added KithenAid and DoughMesstic
    I tweeted the message on Twitter
    I already follow TP&TP on Pinterest
    I already get the emails from TP&TP

  11. the lemon ice cream that I can make is really good – but then is the Coffee HeathBar from Ben and Jerry’s

  12. I have been lusting after that attachment for a while! My favorite flavor of ice cream is Moose Tracks!

  13. My favorite frozen dessert is, of course, homemade ice cream! Sounds boring, but vanilla is my all time favorite because you can add so many interesting toppings to it and make it extra special and delicious. Second would be brown butter ice cream.

  14. My favorite frozen dessert is a layered one – a crust made of butter & crushed oreos, a layer of vanilla ice cream, a jar of hot fudge drizzled on top of the ice cream, and then peanuts and a few more crushed oreos on top. Freeze for about 2-4 hours and enjoy. This makes a fantastic breakfast too – I should know, been there, done that!

  15. Ice cream – but there’s no WAY I could pick a favorite flavor – it depends on my mood (and that’s pretty changeable!), although I did have Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream recently, and it was AMAZING!

  16. I also subscribe to your daily emails. BTW – made a yogurt coffee cake you had on your website. FABULOUS. Love your site and your recipes. Thanks!

  17. My favorite frozen treat has to be home made vanilla ice cream…nothing beats the taste and the memories that come rushing back with the first lick of the dasher!!

  18. Hands down fave….Orange Pineapple Ice Cream. However the Abbott’s butterscotch frozen custard w roasted almonds I had a couple of weeks ago could replace it.

  19. OMG! I love ice cream! I have had a craving for ice cream for the last 2 weeks now and have not had any! My favorite of all time is coffee with chocolate sprinkles. Just a simple dish, nothing fancy! But I really must say I love all ice cream!

  20. My favorite ice cream is Vietnamese Coffee ice cream…it has a little extra *something* that wins over regular coffee ice cream!

  21. Mmmm, this ice cream looks good, but my favorite “frozen dessert” would have be a frozen margarita. Does that count?!?!

  22. My current favorite is chocolate peanut butter ice cream but I’m dying to try and make salted caramel ice cream

  23. I’m a huge Moose Tracks fan! But, lately I’m addicted to S’mores Ice Cream by Breyers. I blame it on pregnancy cravings 😉

  24. Favorite frozen dessert is Ice Cream! Homemade, rich, decadent, full fat ice cream! Chocolate or mint n chip!

  25. Any type of chocolate ice cream. But that strawberry frozen yogurt or ice cream you posted about looked mighty yummy and I’d definitely have to try that. Life is Good 🙂

  26. I absolutely adore ice cream…in any flavor. I used to be a huge chocolate fan, but since I have been baking more I find my palette expanding more and more.

  27. I love a good frozen lemonade pie! I think the only way to make it better would be to make the ice cream myself:)

  28. I love hazelnut gelato, I think it’s my favorite frozen treat. We enjoyed some on a trip to Italy last year – it was divine.

  29. There’s nothing I love more than to sit down with a pint of Haagen Daaz Dulce de Leche ice cream. I’ve peeked through this book and know there is a recipe for this in there. I am excited to try it out!

  30. My favorite frozen dessert is a good fruit popsicle; I bought some that are Coconut, Pineapple, and Orange, and they are very sweet and refreshing, but low on added sugars.

  31. Ice cream…most any flavor! If given the choice I really like it with any kind of chocolate in it (To pick one flavor as a favorite I would say chocolate Moose Tracks!) But any ice cream will do! 🙂

  32. At the moment my favorite is Ben & Jerry’s Blueberry Cheesecake ice cream! It’s incredible! Dare I say, better than the Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor! :0)

  33. I love to make frozen yogurt from my homemade yogurt and add fresh fruit like bananas or strawberries. I love how healthy it is for me and my kiddos!

  34. My fav is throwing a frozen banana, 1/2 cup of milk, heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder, and a handful of frozen blueberries in the blender….best soft serve ever and a tad healthy even:-)

  35. My favorite frozen dessert is homemade oreo ice cream cake [you know, with the buttery oreo crust a layer of vanilla or cookies and cream ice cream, some hot fudge and more crushed oreos]. it always makes me think of my brother’s summer birthday!

  36. I love the combination of coffee ice-cream and lemon sorbet…not your regular combo…but for me it’s perfect for the summer :D!

  37. If it is a frozen dessert, I am all over it! If I was getting something right now…I’m thinking fruity…maybe a slice of Key Lime ice cream pie.

  38. My favorite ice cream is making a chunky monkey shake with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream & adding in sliced bananas, cashews. Tasty!

  39. Best frozen treat: either a red bean coconut shake with pearls from Tea Garden or some crazy concoction from Menchie’s. Mmmm!

  40. I love ice cream! My favorite has to be mint chocolate chip with my great grandma’s homemade chocolate sauce!

  41. My favorite frozen dessert is definitely ice cream. My favorite flavor right now is toasted coconut! YUM!!

  42. I love chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Turkey Hill does a great job, but I hear Breyer’s has a new version which is even better.

  43. Oh my, my favorite frozen dessert by far is my husband’s lemon ice cream. It is the most delicious, decadent dessert in existence. I’ve been begging him to make it again for years, but he keeps refusing because we do not have an ice cream maker. Winning this would be a dream come true!

  44. My all-time favorite frozen dessert is strawberry ice cream. I know–how basic huh, but it wins out every time lol. The cookbook sounds awesome! I would love to check it out 🙂

  45. My favorite ice cream is usually vanilla, since I can add any kind of topping I want and customize it. BUT, when I am back in Oregon, it’s Mountain Blackberry Revel by Umpqua Dairy, so yummy!

  46. I now follow KitchenAid and I *just* got a new mixer for Mother’s Day! How perfect would that attachment be for an ice cream lover like me?!?!

  47. Mom mom used to make homemade ice cream. I grew up on a farm, so plenty of cream and eggs. Dad would crank the ice cream maker while we sat and watched. It seemed to take forever, we couldn’t wait till it was finished. Vanilla, strawberry, fresh peach. It was so good.

  48. My favorite frozen dessert of all time is homemade regular vanilla ice cream! It literrally is perfect I’m sweetness and texture, I love it! So this would be awesome!! 🙂

  49. I now follow KitchenAid on Facebook! And I *just* got a new mixer for Mother’s Day! How perfect would this attachment be for an ice cream LOVER like me?!

  50. (Some of my comments aren’t going through… so if at the end of the day there are duplicates, I’m really not trying to cheat! Please delete!)
