I guess I'm on a bit of a coconut kick lately. It is one of my favorites! I especially love those coconut popsicles with the little coconut flakes in them! Those remind me of being a little girl and going to work with my mom. There used to be a guy who would sell popsicles in a little cart and my mom and I would always go for the coconut bars. I was really going for that same coconut popsicle taste with my ice cream. I think I achieved it with some sweetened condensed milk in my coconut mixture.
And of course, I added a big handful of coconut flakes. The texture was good.
Even as it melted in the hot LA weather!
But the ultimate test was getting my mom's opinion.
And the first thing she said is, "It tastes like a coconut popsicle!" Of course, the ice cream is creamier than a popsicle, but that just kind of made it taste better! I still have one more batch of ice cream to make! As tempted as I am to make another batch of coconut cream, I'm leaning towards something a little more seasonal...
