Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream

This Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream is a delightful dessert for all coconut (and caramel) lovers.


Hi friends, I hope the week has been treating you well so far. I’m going have a super short post. Sometimes I have short posts (Especially on Mondays) when I don’t feel like talking, don’t have an ability to coherently think (that’s definitely on Mondays!), or just when I’m lazy.

Well, this time it’s going to be even shorter. I would like to provide you with a recipe for this Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream right away, but that would be rude. I believe you deserve a short explanation.

I’m going to have 3 recipes this week. Technically, the recipe for this scrumptious Eggplant Basil Walnut Pasta doesn’t belong to this week (I published it on Saturday), so saying “3 recipes within a week” would be more precise.

So why am I doing this?

I’ve decided to challenge myself! Indeed, I would post 3 recipes each week. However, last year I realized it was hard, so I decided to concentrate on only 2 recipes and some social part of blogging. Still, it’s important to shake things up a bit once in a while, thus I’m doing this challenge this week.

Now, did you believe my words? Yes? Too bad. You shouldn’t have. Although I’m an absolutely trustworthy dude, sometimes I mess with you. I do not like challenges unless it’s a challenge to eat more ice cream or watermelons than a human can possibly consume.

The reason is simple. With the summer is gradually wrapping up, I’d like to share as many seasonal recipes as possible. Don’t get me wrong, though. I’m not thinking about apples and pumpkins yet. However, the previous years have shown up that I’m not able to post all my seasonal ideas within summer (And it’s sad to leave out some ideas too).

First of all, posting watermelon or peach recipes in October is a slightly eccentric way. Besides, I don’t like being jealous of other bloggers eating pumpkins while I still have 5 sorbet ideas.

Thus, since I’ve already had the material up to the end of August (And I’m not stopping yet!), I decided to make a little effort this week. Also, Andrey is having a vacation soon, so I’m not sure how it goes with blogging.

Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream

Well, does anyone remember I promised to keep it short today? Oh well… I’m going to be brief describing this Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream then.

There’s nothing much to say. You might be pleased to know that I didn’t use any eggs and cream. Instead, I opted for a full-fat coconut milk and a generous amount of dulce de leche (So this is not a dairy free dessert).

This combo makes a truly delightful dessert with the distinctive coconut (I added coconut chips as well for texture) and caramel flavors. It’s not as rich and decadent as ice cream made with cream and eggs, but it’s velvety and smooth.

I cannot say that this would be my favorite flavor. I do love coconut, but I cannot say I’m a fan of coconut milk ice cream. That’s probably the matter of combinations. For instance, I truly enjoyed this Coconut Mango Ice Cream and Coconut Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream.

Also, I think had I incorporated some nuts (like cashews), this Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream would have been amazingly delicious to my taste. Because let’s be honest – cashews make everything more amazing.

All right, I’ve got to wrap this meeting up because my “shortest post” looks like going to be the longest in history. I told you, I’m a very trustworthy guy!

 

Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1,5 cans (600 gr in total) full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup thick dulce de leche
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • little pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut emulsion (option) or coconut extract (can be more because extract is normally less concentrated), optional
  • 1/3 cup toasted unsweetened coconut

Instructions

  1. In a bowl combine the coconut milk, dulce de leche, vanilla, and salt. Whisk for a minute until the dulce de leche has incorporated. Alternatively, you can blend the mixture in a blender.
  2. Place the mixture in a cylinder of an ice cream maker and freeze as recommended in the manual, for about 20-25 minutes.
  3. When the ice cream is ready, stir in the toasted coconut.
  4. Place the ice cream into a plastic container and freeze until fully frozen.
  5. If you don't have an ice cream maker, just place the mixture into container and freeze. It would take more time. It doesn't need to be churned although its texture would't as smooth and airy as using ice cream maker.
  6. Enjoy!

  1. Yes to this ice cream recipe!!! With the flavors of coconut and dulce de leche think I could make this recipe throughout the winter too! And I’d top it with dark chocolate shavings and toasted cashews (you are spot on about adding cashews to this!). Might be getting out my ice cream maker out tomorrow :)

  2. I’m all for short posts, Ben! Recently I have had Monday brain every day of the week. Lol. So I feel you! Anyways, are you cheating on lavender??? Because I have noticed you have quite a few dulce de leche recipes on this blog! I’d like to know how lavender feels about that! LOL! I, for one, LOVE IT! I’m all about some dulce de leche, so this ice cream is SCREAMING my name! Be a dear and send me a few gallons. Pretty please? ;)

  3. Oh Ben, I feel your pain! I’m trying to cram in the last of my summer ideas, too! It’s hard, and I know as soon as I’m baking with apples I’m going to wish I could be making ice cream :). This ice cream sounds completely wonderful. I’m hoping maybe you could ship me a batch? LOVE coconut and caramel both. Have a great rest of your week!

  4. Three posts in a week? That is really challenging, I try so hard to do the same but I just can’t. Somehow I guess I have settled down to this number. But now I think I should also take this 3 posts in a week challenge. And this Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream would definitely make my day Ben, as I love coconut and caramel both. And I would be so happy to accept any challenge if there is this yummy and delightful ice cream is involved. :)

  5. A short post Ben? My goodness how long is a long post? (Only kidding ;-) )

    Ah blogging eh? No one who doesn’t do food blogging understands just how difficult it is to post even 2 recipes per week as well as hold down a demanding and time consuming full time job as well. Well I know how difficult it is, so I’m with you and 3 recipes would be really difficult. Unless you’re not working full time I would say anyway!

    I’ll need to try this ice cream recipe Ben. I particularly like that you don’t need an ice cream maker to maker it!

  6. Haha…you are indeed a trustworthy guy, Ben! I might not believe you when you talk about writing short posts, but I do believe you when you talk about ice cream. Your flavor combinations always sound incredible, and they make me want to chug my morning coffee just so I can get started on ice cream. :-) I haven’t made much ice cream lately, and this post is making me want to fix that! Maybe a lavender ice cream? Eh, who am I kidding? I love this coconut + dulce de leche combo. I definitely need to try it! Oh, and speaking of ice cream, Laura and I went out for ice cream this past weekend and came across a s’mores ice cream. They somehow made graham cracker ice cream as the base…I have no idea what they did to get a smooth ice cream that tasted like graham crackers, but it was so good! Can you research that and let me know? Thanks!
