Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

Per Serving: 341 calories, 3 net carbs.

Servings: 6

 

Ingredients

1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut

4 egg yolks

1/4 to 1/2 tsp (20-30 drops) liquid stevia (or equiv), to taste

1 c heavy whipping cream

2 tbsp vanilla extract

1 c coconut cream

 

Directions

Toast shredded coconut in a skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove and set aside.

In a double boiler (off heat), combine egg yolks and sweetener. Beat until thick. Add heavy cream and set the pot over simmering water. Beat continuously until thick.

Remove from heat, add vanilla extract and coconut cream. Beat for a minute or two longer.

Cover and refrigerate for several hours until chilled. Stir every hour (or occasionally) to prevent a skin from forming.

Place in an ice cream maker and churn according to instructions. Freeze churned ice cream for an hour before serving. This makes ice cream with a perfect consistency.

– OR –

Place mixture into a container in the freezer, churning by hand with a fork / spoon / whisk every 30 minutes. This makes ice cream with a chunky-firm, icy consistency.
