Author Notes: When I first made this ice cream no one could guess that the secret ingredient was corn. It's very refreshing. - Judy at Two Broads AbroadJudy at Two Broads Abroad

Food52 Review: Delicious and refreshing! This ice cream has a perfectly smooth and creamy texture thanks to straining out the coconut and corn solids. Ripe summer corn lends an overall sweetness to the ice cream, and relatively little sugar is needed. The next time I make this, I will try using an immersion blender. It will likely alter the texture, but it will save a few dirty dishes. - esantilloThe Editors

Just looking at the amounts of milk, cream, eggs, sugar etc. this has to make much more than a quart?

I'd call it a generous quart. The corn and coconut solids are only used for their favor and not bulk. So they only add flavor. This is usually gobbled up so quickly I've never measured it accurately.
