coconut ice cream with lime and rum

July 27, 2015


Author Notes: I love coconut. When I was little, the first time I had a frozen dessert flavored with coconut, I was in Puerto Rico where my father was working at the time. This is a recipe that is super easy and reminds me of that first time I realized how much I love coconut. NB: I picked up two tips that come from awesome chefs- one is to use sweetened condensed milk for smoothness, (Nigella Lawson) and the other is to add alcohol to prevent the mixture from freezing beyond the point of scooping.
