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. (David Leibovitz.) Enjoy! —navahfrost

What You'll Need
  • 15 ounces cream of coconut (Coco Lopez, 1 can)
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup white rum
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 14 ounces can sweetened condensed milk
  1. Mix all the ingredients together either in the blender or by hand. Freeze until just the right scooping texture- a few hours.
