Creamy Lime in the Coconut Ice Cream
I have a life long love/hate relationship with coconut. Love the flavor, hate the texture. So, little pieces of shredded coconut inside foods or covering the outside of a cake? Nope, not for me. The result of this has been that I spent a lot of time avoiding coconut flavored foods and pretty much kept my coconut consumption to pina coladas.
A few weeks ago I was actually tasting a new coconut flavored yogurt (and pulling flakes out of my mouth - sorry) but it reminded me how much I really do like the flavor. So, it's high time for me to make my own coconut creations, right? And since the temperatures have been in the upper 80's lately, it's only right that I start with ice cream!
My version is creamy and wonderful and addictive and flake free. Feel free to add coconut flakes if you like them. But if you, like me, have flake issues, this completely smooth and delicious recipe is for you. Enjoy!
