Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Coconut and chocolate? What's not to like? Why not take that classic combo and make an ice cream out of it? I did just that! This ice cream is creamy, chunky and oh so nice! If you're a coconut and/or chocolate lover then this ice cream is the one for you!

Ice Cream Week 2008

Note: This recipe is designed to fit this ice cream maker. You could easily double or triple it or whatever to fit in a larger machine.

What You'll Need:
1 pint of heavy cream
1 pint of half and half
1 cup of coconut
1 - 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of mini chocolate chips

In a medium sized pot add heavy cream, half and half and coconut and bring to a quick boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching and remove from heat. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and place in the fridge until the mixture is cooled completely. (Note: This will most likely take 4-5 hours, but you can leave it overnight if you want.)

Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: Soft Serve Stage

Once the mixture is chilled stir in mini-chocolate chips and add it to your ice cream maker and freeze according to your machine's instructions. Once the mixture hits the soft serve stage you can serve immediately or place in the freezer in an airtight container to harden fully.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: A Bite

Notes: You could add in a couple of tablespoons of coconut extract if you wanted to make it extra coconutty.

I have the ICE-20. It makes the same amount of ice cream as your model... but yours is cuter! :-)

Cannot wait to make this--there was an amazing cocochocochip ice cream in DC years ago and this looks like it could rival it. thanks!

Do you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut? My daughter is salivating.

Posted by: Jules at July 9, 2008 5:06 PM

I've done it both ways. On this batch I used sweetened, but I've also done it with unsweetened as well. It's good either way. :o)

Ooh! We tried this recipe this week, and it was really good! I didn't see your note about adding coconut extract for a more coconut flavor ............I will definately want to try it that way next time!
