  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk coconut milk, sugar, half-and-half, lime juice, lime zest, and salt together in a bowl until sugar dissolves. Transfer coconut mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches 'soft-serve' consistency.
  2. Transfer ice cream to a lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  3. Scoop ice cream into stemmed glasses or bowls. Garnish with mango and and lime slices.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Taste test before placing in machine, so you'll have an idea if the recipe needs more lime or sugar to suit your taste. I often substitute half and half for 2% milk or vanilla soy milk. I have even used canned evaporated milk (chilled) - NOT the non-fat version. The less fat, of course, the more icy the resulting product will be. Lemon would probably work equally well, in place of lime.
