Coconut-dream ice cream

Michael Alberstat


  • 2 cups full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Combine milks with 1/4 cup sugar in a medium saucepan and set over medium-high. Bring to just a simmer, whisking occasionally, 5 to 6 min.
  • Whisk egg yolks with remaining sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Wrap a damp kitchen towel around the base of the bowl (to prevent it from slipping). Gradually whisk in half of hot milk mixture. Return entire mixture to saucepan set over low. Do not let mixture come to a simmer or it will curdle. With a wooden spoon, stir constantly until mixture is reduced to 3 cups, about 35 min. Pour through a fine sieve into a metal bowl. Lay plastic wrap directly on surface to prevent skin from forming. Chill in the freezer until cold, about 1 hour.
  • Scrape cold mixture into a pre-frozen ice-cream-maker bowl and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions, 30 to 45 min. Transfer to a covered container and freeze up to a month.
  • To serve, let stand at room temperature until slightly softened, 10 min.
