Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream is delicious by itself or covered in dark chocolate syrup. But it is an extra delicious dessert when paired with Fresh Pineapple Sorbet. You can make this with or without the shredded coconut, depending on how you are about texture. I’ve made it both ways now, and think I prefer it without…

1/2 cup shredded coconut, sweetened or unsweetened (optional)

Mix milk and cream of coconut together well with a whisk. Stir in heavy cream.

Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's directions. Add coconut during the last 5-10 minutes of mixing time.
