Last week we had the most fantastic weather here in Copenhagen and weather like that calls for ice cream! This recipe for coconut & chocolate ice cream is really easy to make and the kids will love to get involved.
The base of the recipe can be varied in endless ways – try for example to make it with espresso, fresh strawberries or banana & chocolate. We have tried them all and let’s just say it’s hard to choose a favorite!

Coconut Chocolate Ice-Cream


Do not have an ice cream maker? Then freeze the cream in a freezer bag. When it starts to get hard take out the bag and knead it to prevent large ice crystals. When it starts to become difficult to knead, cut a hole in the bag and press it into a container.
Coconut Chocolate Ice-Cream


You will need:

• 2 cups of whipping cream
• 1 cup of milk
• 3 whole eggs
• 100 g of sugar
• T
he grains from a vanilla bean
• 1/2 desiccated coconut
• 100 g dark chocolate (roughly chopped)

How to:

  1. Mix everything except for the coconut and chocolate together in a saucepan and warm it up slowly to 85 degrees. Exactly! If you do not have a meat thermometer, take it as soon as it is clear creamy and the first boiling bubbles start to appear. If it boils, it is destroyed.
  2. Pour the cream into a bowl and let the cream cool.
  3. Add the desiccated coconut and roughly chopped chocolate.
  4. Pour the cream into an ice cream maker to freeze the ice in.
  5. Scrape off the ice into a container that can go into the freezer.
