Toasted Coconut Ice Cream Recipe
Straight To Recipe

We’ve been thinking about a single ice cream flavor that best captures the both of us, and it is a no brainer—Toasted Coconut Ice Cream! The chewy crunchy topping adds extra oomph to a beloved sweet classic.

Shelly grew up in the Caribbean, making homemade coconut ice cream from scratch with nuts she and her cousins picked in their grandmother’s yard. Kelly spent her seaside summers topping off her favorite flavors with sprinkles, adding texture and fun to the smooth, creamy flavors underneath. Put these elements together and BOOM! We present to you, our Toasted Coconut Ice Cream Recipe.

You won’t need to climb any trees to get your coconuts for this one. You don’t even need an ice cream machine! Using True Scoops Vanilla Bean Mix, you can whip up a quick version of Coconut ice cream in your kitchen, that still uses natural coconut, and doesn’t require too much muscle. By toasting up coconut flakes and blending them with Half & Half, you will create a base that richly flavors the ice cream mix. Toasting the coconut brings out its complex nutty, caramel notes, gorgeously brightened up by the subtle floral Vanilla Bean in the True Scoops Ice Cream Mix.

To make the ice cream you’ll need:


Kitchen Equipment

  • Small saucepan
  • Blender
  • Fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth
  • Mixing bowl
  • Hand mixer

Love it? Yeah you do. Ice cream is Love! We’re sure you’ll find yourself making this ice cream over and over again. Here are some twists and additions we’ve tried and ADORED that show off the versatility of this Toasted Coconut flavor.

  • For extra flavor and crunch: Sprinkle in chocolate chips and chopped toasted almonds.

  • For a fruity remix: Top scoops with fresh pineapple or mango for a truly tropical treat. (Think Piña Coladas, but not getting caught in the rain!)

  • For a boozy milkshake: Blend your scoops with a shot of dark rum and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
