Not long til summer ends here... So I was playing with my ice cream maker again. I have been doing a lot of ice cream recipes that doesn't require any eggs in the recipe for some special family members, and was going to do a vanilla ice cream when I decided to change it to coconut ice cream at the last minute. So typical of me! Then 15 mins into the the game, I remembered I had some home-made red bean paste left and decided to throw that into the ice cream as well. So, 10 mins later, I had red bean and coconut ice cream. My friends and family had fun licking all three spatulas that were used, which made me very happy!
1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup cream
3 cups coconut cream or thick coconut milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 to 2 cups red bean paste
In a med bowl, whisk sugar, milk and cream til sugar is dissolved. Stir in coconut cream and vanilla. Everything goes into the 2 quart Cuisinart ice cream maker. Enjoy in 25 mins.
Ice cream will be soft, creamy texture. Stick it into the freezer for about 2 hours if you want a firmer consisitency. Recipe adapted from vanilla ice cream recipe in manualGarnished with some cooked red beans, toasted shredded coconut, and a cherry today for the kids.
