Submitted by: CSMNETC

Introduction

While all ingredients are technically Paleo compliant, this is still DESSERT! So enjoy responsible ;) for special occasions rather than at bedtime EVERY night.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 coconut-date rolls (Whole Foods bulk = 30 gram/ roll), chopped
    1 can organic full-fat coconut milk (Native Forest
    Organic Coconut Milk Classic)
    1 cup organic light coconut milk (Native Forest Organic coconut Milk Light)
    4 Organic egg yolks, large
    1 Tbsp. organic vanilla extract
    2 ounces macadamia nuts, chopped
    1 ounce chocolate discs, chopped
    2 Tbsp. dry coconut flakes, unsweetened, chopped

Tips

Makes less than a quart, maybe about 24 ounces. So about 8 very rich 3-ounce servings.


Directions

Process dates until finely chopped; add 1/4 cup coconut milk as needed.
Using double boiler: heat coconut milk, date mixture, and vanilla extract over simmering water (making certain water is not touching top bowl)
Whisk egg yolks in separate bowl. Temper eggs: Add ladleful of hot coconut milk to eggs while whisking vigorously. Repeat x 3.
Add tempered egg misxure to coconut milk in double boiler. Whisk for 2-3 minutes until thick custard is formed. Remove from double boiler and cool to room temperature. If desired, add other desired flavorings now (none used here). Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled - 2 or more hours. Stir in chilled light coconut milk
Pour into ice cream maker (We use Secura) and follow instructions, freezing about 40-55 minutes for soft set. About 5 minutes before finish, add in nuts, chocolate disc, and coconut flakes.
Transfer to storage container. Freeze until desired firmness: 15 minutes - 2 hours.

Serving Size: Serve in 1/4 cup servings
