Author Notes: As a girl, my dad would buy us whole coconuts frequently. We would all clamor down to the basement and watch him hammer it open as we discussed the size of our coconut pieces. As a big nut lover, my dad would always mix nuts in whenever possible. The chilled coconut meat and almond flavor of these times inspired the creation of this pure and essential recipe. These two flavors work together to bring out the fresh coconut flavor. —AveryM
- 2 cups Unsweetened coconut milk
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup thin sliced almonds
- 1 cup fresh coconut meat
- Comine coconut milk, sugar, and almond extract.
- Stir mixture until the sugar is mostly absorbed into the milk mixture.
- Then add in the corn syrup and heavy whipping cream.
- Mix all ingredients well. A blender also works very well for this.
