Put the Lime in the Coconut…

Have you ever made your own ice cream?  I made mint chocolate chip last Summer and using real mint really took it up a notch.  (Compared to what you find in the grocery store)  I’m excited to try this recipe for Lime + Coconut ice cream from Two Peas and Their Pod.  Looks delicious!!

ingredients:

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

directions:

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.
