Because of my love for coconut, Mr N made me a cup out of a coconut shell and it is so pwetty. I started keeping some salt in the cup as you can see in my video here. Then I decided to love the cup even more by making some coconut ice cream to be served in it.

coconut ice cream recipe

I loooove this ice cream. I love love love it! It is coconuty (definitely!), creamy (ah!) and comforting (uh!). It is sweet, but not so sweet as your regular ice cream. It has a salty end taste that balances everything together beautifully. I’m living happily ever after with this cup and with my coconut ice cream.
If you by some rare stroke of luck have toasted coconut flakes, top your coconut ice cream with them for a bump-free trip to coconuty heaven.

The actors involved:
coconut ice cream ingredients
Prep: 10 mins
Partially active time: 6 hours
Cook: 0 mins
1 can coconut milk
1 can cream of coconut
1 cup heavy whipping cream or half and half
Half teaspoon salt
Half teaspoon coconut flavour (optional)
What you need to do:

Combine all ingredients in a plastic bowl and give them a good mix.
Cover your bowl and place in a freezer. (If you have an ice cream maker, simply pour in and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.)
Now what you do is remove your ice cream and beat every 20 minutes or so, so that it freezes into the right texture. This takes about 6 hours so I like doing it when I am at home with no plans of going out. If you have an ice cream maker, no need to do this.
Coconut ice cream is ready! How easy was that? Now excuse me while I go lick some.

  11. Hi little sis! Glad to see your comment here.

    I'm not sure if the coconut milk and cream are readily available in Cameroon but you can simply make yours from a coconut. All you need to do is grate the coconut then you blend with water to extract the milk. Sieve it with a fine sieve then mix with condensed milk (Nestle) for a creamy texture.
    The whipping cream can be found in super markets. You will likely find it kept in a fridge because it has to remain cold.

    Hope this helps.

    Love you, sis.

  12. Super easy and super delicious.
    I'll love to hear how it goes, June.
