Coconut-Coffee Ice Cream with Cinnamon-Almond Crunch


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pour coconut milk into a medium saucepan, scraping out all of the solids. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into milk; add vanilla pod. Cook and stir over medium heat just until simmering. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

  • Combine water and espresso powder; stir espresso mixture and honey into milk. Return just to simmering. Remove vanilla pod. In a medium bowl whisk egg yolks until smooth. Gradually whisk in about 2 cups of the hot milk mixture; return all to saucepan. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture coats the back of a spoon (170°F).

  • Strain milk mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl placed in a larger bowl of ice water; stir to cool. Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours.

  • Freeze chilled mixture in a 1 1/2-quart ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions, adding 2/3 of the Cinnamon-Almond Crunch during the last 5 minutes. Ripen 4 hours. Sprinkle each serving of ice cream with remaining crunch topping.
