  • 1/2 C sweetened coconut
  • 1 C granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 lrg eggs
  • 1 1/2 C coconut cream
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 C crushed pineapple drained


  • spread the coconut onto a baking sheet and toast at 350 for 4-7 mins (just until golden, I like to stir after 3 mins
  • in a medium bowl whisk the sugar, cornstarch and salt
  • add the eggs and beat until light in color and foamy
  • in a saucepan heat the coconut cream and milk until just starting to steam/bubble
  • pour the hot milk into the eggs in a steady stream while beating (so it doesn't cook and scramble the eggs)
  • pour back into the saucepan and heat, stirring constantly until thickened enough to coat the back of the spoon/spatula
  • take off the heat and strain
  • stir in the vanilla and heavy cream
  • refrigerate until chilled
  • run through your ice cream maker according to the directions
  • scoop half into your ice cream holder/tupperware and sprinkle on half the coconut and pineapple - repeat - then stir as much or as little as you want
  • serve right away for a soft ice cream or freeze for a more traditional ice cream, 3-4 hours
