I make yogurt at home too, I’m sure home made yogurt can be used instead of store-bought. In regards to the ice cream maker, yes, you can make ice cream without a maker – I have never done it but I’m sure David would be able provide you with some nifty technique!
What type of ice cream maker do you use? I am returning a refurbished Cuisinart (the $$ self-refrigerated one) since my ice creams are taking nearly one hour to freeze properly, and any knows that is waaaay long to wait when you are wanting a frozen treat STAT! I have made this recipe the “David” way – wonderful, rich, creamy, tangy – everything you’d want in a fro-yo, except it does freeze very rock solid. Gotta give the coconut flavor a spin.
Thanks for the love, Steamy. By the way, your food floats somewhere between category 1 and 2. Your photos blow me away every time, but they also inspire me to the kitchen. My waistline may not be happy you took up blogging, but my mouth sure is. 😉
Looks yummy, Jaden. I think I’ll give this one a try if my new neighbor has an ice cream maker. Last summer’s ice creams all were made with my neighbor’s machine which is very embarrasing to admit!!!!!!!! I love your dishes and photos and the colors you use. You are a master of mastering reflection in the photos as well. Bravo.
NY- don’t you wish we could have a food bloggers fair – each one of us gets a booth and gives out free samples of one of our dishes? Wouldn’t that be FUN!?
Thank you Lucy! Maybe its time to get your very own ice cream maker….this is so good that once you make it, you’ll not want to share any of it with your new neighbor. Borrowing without sharing would be baaaaaddd for neighborly relations! 🙂
I’ve been dying to try this recipe. Then yesterday my MIL came over and surprised us with two big bags of fresh off the tree sweet cherries (I live in the cherry capital)! So last night I popped my ice cream bowl in the freezer and my yogurt is ‘greeking’ as I type.
So I’m using your recipe but I’m adding in my fresh cherries and I can’t wait!
I want to try making this recipe, but the only thing I can find in my grocery is “imitation coconut” extract. I am wondering if that’s what you’re using or if it’s something more like Coco Lopez? If you are using real coconut extract, can you tell me the brand or where to get it? Thanks!
