  • 1 cup about 8 ounces regular coconut milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/16 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together coconut milk, cream, sugar, extracts and coconut.
  • Put the mixture in an ice cream maker and process as the manufacturer directs.
  • Eat immediately or transfer ice cream to a 2 or 3 quart container and freeze until firm.
  • This ice cream is fairly solid when frozen, so let it sit out for a few minutes or defrost in the microwave for a few seconds to soften.
