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.

Lime and Coconut Ice Cream
- 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.

My favorite frozen dessert is peanut butter ice cream pie.
Lime and coconut are like peanut butter and jelly to me. Perfectly matched!
Soya Bean Ice Cream! My favourite. Unfortunately it is not available in supermarket or most ice cream retailers.
I made this, and it seems like it’s missing more milk and/or cream. The recipe states it makes 2 quarts. Making it as is would have yielded a half quart or so. Plus the flavor was extremely strong. I added additional milk and cream to yield one quart, and the flavor is still pretty strong, although it tastes really good. I would recommend tasting it prior to freezing it, to see if you want to dilute the flavor a bit. With the recipe saying it yields two quarts, I wonder if an ingredient is missing from the recipe.
Looks cool, refreshing and delicious. Thanks for sharing!
The downside of recipes and contents in the same post is that I can’t find feedback about the recipe in the comments! Oh well 🙁
I agree with Sheila about it seeming like something is missing, and that the flavor is strong. Whilst the resulting ice cream was still pretty yummy, I could really only taste the lime, and I wound up with much less than 2 quarts. I feel like I needed to add some coconut milk or something.
Good idea. combination lime and coconut will give great taste for milk.
My favorite ice-cream is tricky. Due to my food allergy I am dairy free. I love making new creations that i know I can trust and understand all the ingredients going in. My favorite is a mock maple almond sorbet! if i could have ice-cream, it would be cookies and creme=]
Since I was a little girl I’ve always had a sweet tooth. Now that I’m older I’ve begun trying to make healthier choices for myself, my daughters and my granddaughter. With that being said, I believe my favorites I find most difficult to steer clear of are tiramisu and Blue Bell’s Moolenium Crunch ice cream! It’s sad, but I’m proud to say I’ve gotten more than a few family members and friends addicted to both! Tiramisu is so simple, elegant and rich all at once. Moolenium Crunch is almonds, walnuts, pecans and pieces of dark and milk chocolate as well as caramel chips distributed perfectly in their famous vanilla ice cream. They also make a chocolate ice cream version, but I choose the vanilla every time! If you haven’t tried them YOU MUST!
Any flavor of ice cream is good!!
Amaretto ice cream is my favorite! Yum!!
Dark chocolate with blanched almonds is my favorite
Ginger ice cream!!
I really want to like this recipe, I didn’t. I followed the recipe to the letter. Chilled mixture over night, my ice maker cylinder is always in the deep freezer. I am assuming the there is just to much sugar in the recipe. It couldn’t freeze. I followed my ice cream maker instructions. It said to process 20-25 minutes. But it wasn’t ready so I processed another 25 minutes. Nope still not ready to put in a container. I felt the mixture was almost gelatinous. The flavour was delicious but way too sweet. Won’t be making tgis one again. Although I did like steeping my own coconut milk instead of buying canned. At the moment the ice cream is in my deep freezer, I hope this improves the texture.
