We've had a heat wave here in England (no, I'm not complaining)--so out the ice cream maker came! Like clouds parting with rays of sunshine and choruses of "hallelujah" we set to work combining ingredients to make the perfect Coconut Chip Ice cream. Okay, so actually Ben & Jerry did most the work, I just adapted it to suit my taste buds.... But don't tell the neighbors, I like them thinking I'm a domestic goddess! LOL
Beat the eggs in your mixer for a few minutes until they're frothy, slowly add the sugar little by little, beating it in well. I spend at least 5-8 minutes adding the sugar in.
Then add the milk and creams and mix for a minute or so.
Now add in the box of coconut cream and mix it in well.
Pop this whole mixture in the fridge to make it reallllly cold while you set up your ice cream maker.
A word on ice cream makers--I researched a LOT on this subject, and finally came to the conclusion that the Kitchen Aid adapter was going to be the easiest, no fuss way for me. It has never failed me, and I've made boat loads of ice cream since buying it two years ago. No ice to buy, no salt, nada you guys. .. Just put the bowl in the freezer to "set" and 24 hrs later you are ready to rock. I'm linking the bowl here for you. Be sure to set it up as per directions (it's not difficult, it's one driver)-I taped the instructions to the inside of my cabinet. I can do it in my sleep now, but you know, I have my DOH! moments too.... Moving on.
