coconut and lime ice cream

by Sam on February 24, 2012

This is a light and refreshing dessert that is dairy and egg free (vegan), very easy to make and my new favourite ice cream. 

Served alongside a fruity sorbet, it sends you straight to a tropical heavenly place.

I am really not a fan of fresh coconut, but coconut water, milk and cream on the other hand are delectable to me.

  • 150ml / 2/3 cup water
  • 115g / ½ cup sugar
  • 2 limes
  • 400ml coconut milk

Bring the water and sugar to the boil in a small pot until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the syrup to cool. Finely grate the green part of the limes and squeeze the juice and add this to the syrup. Add the coconut milk and stir.

If making by Hand:

Pour the mixture into a plastic tub and freeze for 5 – 6 hours. Beating every two hours to break up the ice crystals. 

If making with a machine and how I do it:

Pour the mixture into the ice cream machine and churn until it is a scoopable consistency. Remove and freeze until ready to serve. 

 I look forward to connecting with you again in the future.

I am in heaven with this ice cream. Been looking for a vegan coconut ice cream and the lime really tops it off. Beautiful photos too. Thanks for posting this, I am going to make it today.

This sounds like a perfect drink as well. I’m not a fan of eggless/noncustard ice creams because they are not very creamy, but I would love to try this out as a drink. YUM!

Thanks Angelle, I think it was my favourite ice cream last summer and plan to make it again (and variations of it) this summer.
