Coconut Ice Cream

Summer is here – time to break out your ice cream maker! This recipe calls for cream of coconut, which should be available at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods. Fresh Market or another organic grocer. If you like coconut, the hunt is well worth it. A tasty cold treat for any hot day!

Note that the insert in the ice cream maker should be placed in the freezer overnight for best results.
