Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread 3 cups flaked coconut onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake coconut in the preheated oven, turning once, until toasted, 6 to 10 minutes. Cool completely.

  • Beat sugar and eggs together in a bowl until light and frothy; add cream of coconut and beat well. Add half-and-half and vanilla extract into egg mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir toasted coconut and flaked coconut into half-and-half mixture.

  • Pour coconut mixture into the bowl of an ice-cream maker. Pour milk into coconut mixture to fill machine to the fill-line, if necessary. Freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Cook's Note:

You can use half-and-half instead of milk for richer ice cream.

Love this ice cream. The coconut adds a great dimension to the ice cream and taste is perfect. We made a 1/2 recipe of this...our ice cream freezer only holds a quart plus. We WILL make this one again. Read More
