Coconut Ice Cream

For a double coconut treat, stir 1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut into the ice cream during the final minute of processing. To make a colorful sundae, garnish the ice cream with sliced or diced tropical fruit, such as papaya or mango. For a more savory variation, serve with sliced avocados and drizzle the ice cream with extra-virgin olive oil and coarse sea salt.

Excellent recipe
November 14, 2013
I hardly ever eat an entire vat of ice cream after making it but I ate all of this myself (over the course of a few weeks, ha)!
Next time I might cut back on the coconut cream a bit because it was on the border of being too sweet. But overall, silky, creamy, and brought me back to the islands.
Instead of discarding the coconut from the first step, I added that to the mix in a few minutes before the ice cream was done. It had a more mellow flavor, which worked because there was already a strong enough coconut flavor. I also added a 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts which took it to the next level! Next time I will consider adding in caramel swirl to replicate what I had at Lappert's in Kauai =)
Pros: Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again, taste

Worth the Effort
July 30, 2013
This recipe, though a bit laborious, is entirely worth the effort, because the payoff is nothing short of incredible.
The texture of the finished ice cream is as close to perfect as I've ever encountered. You can't feel even the tiniest ice crystals as you eat it, it's so smooth and creamy. And, if you opt to add 1/2 cup of toasted coconut flakes during the last minute of churning, as I did, you'll be treated to even more wonderful texture, as the flakes will stay crunchy. It helps that toasted coconut is one of my favorite foods, and this is chock full of the flavor of it.
Everything about this ice cream from the flavor to the texture is, well, incredible.
I imagine this will become a staple of my freezer, because, as ice cream, it's a simple enough dessert to eat that it will do on any occasion, but it's also complex, rich and just plain amazing enough to serve even on special occasions.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again, Flavor, Texture
Cons: Complicated, Lengthy
