    The flavour was quite nice at first, but it does finish slightly soapy. The oil in the coconut also congeals during freezing and leaves little fatty particles that are a tiny bit unpleasant. Even so, for ease, this recipe deserves five stars. Also, I found it hard to stop eating. If you can maintain the initial flavour for a bit by eating more of it, it's very satisfying. And the lingering lime taste afterward is very pleasant.  -  04 Apr 2015


    This was a very light, refreshing sorbet but it didn't taste a whole lot like coconut. I added a little bit of sugar just because I felt that it really needed some, and the lime flavor came out just right-not too sour or sweet.  -  03 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I cannot rate this recipe as I made it incorrectly, and realized my mistake too late. It is VERY important to use Cream of Coconut (which is sweetened) and not Coconut Milk (which is unsweetened). I think this is why other reviewers claimed this dessert was too tart. I added a cup of sugar after freezing, but before hardening and even this could not save the flavor. Will try again with the right ingredients.  -  12 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
