Growing up in St. James, Trinidad and Tobago, the highlight of every day after school was getting ice cream from the ice cream shop opposite to my high school. The variety of flavors that they offered were unmatched and you literally fill up an 8oz cup with any combination of flavors with as little as $2 if you caught them right before closing time. The experience of pure joy and hopeful expectation at the end of every day was part of what influenced my journey into the field of ice cream making. As a maker of two ice cream brands (Island Pops and True Scoops), I have always found passion and motivation in these memories. I hope you enjoy making ice cream at home with your family while creating the same lasting experiences that I had each day after school at that ice cream shop.
Here's my version of toasted coconut ice cream using True Scoops. The toasted coconut flavor is warm and inviting and reminds me of home.
I suggest you top your scoops with fresh diced mango for a real tropical punch! It pairs so well with the coconut ice cream.
Enjoy! <3 Shelly
