You will HAVE to use coconut milk for this recipe and not substitute coconut juice or coconut cream or…

Also, it can be tough to find unsweetened coconut, and this recipe is sweet enough already so you do not want the extra sugar. So you can easily rinse sweetened coconut in a colander, spread on a cookie sheet, and dry in the oven. Easy peasy!

This is really good and light. It didn’t freeze up very well in the ice cream churn, so it turned into a block of creamy ice in the freezer which I then had to scrape off, but it tastes good enough to be worth it!
