Coconut milk and lime are churned together for this refreshing and tangy ice cream. Serve with mango slices for a tropical twist. You might need to halve the recipe if you have a small ice cream maker.
Taste the mixture before pouring it into the ice cream machine so you can adjust the amount of sugar or lime to suit your taste. I often substitute the single cream for semi-skimmed milk, vanilla soya milk or evaporated milk. The less fat, of course, the more icy the ice cream will be. Lemon would probably work equally well, in place of lime.
Tasting this right out of the ice cream machine, it tastes like a light lime sherbet. I think some coconut extract might help with the coconut taste. I halved the recipe to fit in my small ice cream maker and I only had one can of coconut milk. I can see making this again and again. Thanks! - 11 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It's tangy and nice but very light-bodied. Half-way between an ice cream and a sorbet. A little too light for my taste, but excellent if that's what you're looking for. - 07 Aug 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
