1 cup milk
1 (14 ounce) can cream of coconut
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut (optional)
combine the milk and cream of coconut in the container of a food processor or blender, and mix thoroughly. stir in cream and flaked coconut. pour into the container of an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
the second batch i made was a burnt sugar ice cream (which, due to tuesdays with dorie, is quite the popular). i can't remember which recipe i used, but they are mostly the same. it is a really unique (and good!) ice cream flavor. just google it and take your pick of recipes. (i added almonds to mine.)
