Coconut Key Lime Ice Cream

As this week slowly limps forward, I find myself looking forward to the July 4th weekend.

And while I'm a big fan of our Indepence I'm also a big fan of a three day weekend. When you're making your dessert plan for the cookouts and outdoor fun, you'll want to have some really good ice cream.. 

And I couldn't resist combining the last of my coconut and some key lime juice along with coconut milk. This recipe is perfect if you have little time and want to bring a dessert to a cookout or enjoy it on your own.

In fact don't plan on bringing it,  just enjoy it on your own.

Coconut Key Lime Ice Cream
2 (15 ounce) Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup key lime juice

Combine the milk, sugar and coconut in a sauce pan and heat over medium until the sugar dissolves. Cool and place in the refrigerator until chilled through (2-3 hours) Add the key lime juice. Then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the instructions.

  1. Great idea! I've been craving key lime pie lately so maybe I'll give this a try with the left over coconut milk in the fridge.
