Coconut

The first step is toasting your coconut. This will bring out a deeper flavor and texture.

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Place the coconut on a baking sheet and bake for about seven minutes.

Flip the coconut every few minutes, to make sure the heat is distributed evenly, and all sides of the shredded coconut pieces are browned.

Homemade Coconut Ice Cream

Stir the milk, 1 cup of whipping cream, sugar, and salt in a saucepan.

Once heated, gradually stir in the toasted coconut.

Add the sliced vanilla been for flavor.

Once these ingredients are mixed, turn off the heat and cover the mixture.

Allow it to cool and steep at room temperature for about sixty minutes.

Uncover the mixture and reheat over low heat for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour mixture through a strainer, separate and discard the coconut and vanilla bean from the mixture (Use a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible from the coconut.). **

Chill your ice cream base until thoroughly cooled - about 3 hours.

Once chilled, add the other cup of whipping cream and the vanilla extract.

Pour into your ice cream maker and churn about 25-30 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.

Enjoy your frozen coconut treat!

**Helpful Hint: (As a variation, you may decide to set aside the toasted coconut to add as a topping for your ice cream when the recipe is complete.)

Coconut

First, you'll need to toast your coconut to bring out a deeper flavor and texture.

You can do this easily. Set your oven to 350 degrees.

Once it is heated, place the coconut in a baking sheet and toast for about seven minutes.

Be sure to flip the coconut every few minutes, to make sure the heat is distributed evenly, and all sides of the shredded coconut pieces are browned.

Ice Cream

In a saucepan, stir milk, half of the cream (1 cup), sugar, and salt and heat through.

Slowly stir in the toasted coconut and then add the sliced vanilla been for extra flavor.

Turn off the heat and cover the mixture. Then let the mixture cool for about 1 hour at room temperature.

After it has sat for 1 hour, uncover and reheat it on low for about 10 min. Be sure to stir it occasionally.

Pour through a strainer to separate the coconut and vanilla bean from the mixture (use a spoon to press out as much liquid as possible from the coconut).

Discard the coconut and vanilla bean.**

In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with a fork.

Slowly pour your heated milk mixture over the eggs. Combine.

Then pour all of the contents of the bowl back into the saucepan.

Heat the mixture once again in the saucepan, stirring it the entire time. Remove from heat only when the mixture thickens and stiffens into a pudding-like consistency.

Chill this mixture in the fridge until completely cooled. This will take about 3 hours.

Once chilled, add the other cup of cream and vanilla extract.

In ice cream maker, churn about 25-30 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.

**Helpful Hint: As a variation, you may decide to set aside the toasted coconut to add as a topping for your ice cream when the recipe is complete.

Enjoy your homemade coconut ice cream treat!
