How To Toast Coconut

Here is all you do to toast coconut:

Spread shredded coconut in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 300 F (150 C) for about 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes to make sure that the coconut browns evenly.

Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

The ingredient list is super small for Toasted Coconut Ice Cream. I use a can of sweetened condensed milk, cream, milk, coconut extract, and shredded, toasted coconut. These ingredients get mixed together then poured into an ice cream maker to churn.

If you love coconut, you’ll love this ice cream.  With each spoonful, you feel the creamy smooth texture and taste the intense coconut flavor. Speckled throughout are the flakes of the toasted coconut which add an unexpected slight crunch.

  1. I’m interested in making this for my boyfriend, but he is lactose intolerant. What substitutes do you suggest?

    1. Hi Jacqueline,

      I have not made coconut ice cream with anything other than the ingredients I have listed in this recipe. But, I would suggest you have a look at this vegan coconut ice cream recipe and see if it might be one you’d like to try. It’s made with full fat coconut milk and sounds like it could be a winner –

      Hope this helps and I’m sure your boyfriend will love it.


      1. Thank you, Joanie! I’m so happy I found your website. I look forward to trying some of the recipes.


  2. Made this lovely recipe when I had guests and they just loved and and wanted to have the recipe. Will be making again. I just put in 2 tsp coconut extract, just love coconut.

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe, Marsha. Great idea to add coconut extract, I’ll have to add it in the next time I make this recipe.

  3. Tirralan - Tinseltown Mom

    This is just reminding me that I need a new ice cream maker, and a great way to get coconut into my diet!

    Love the idea of this! My mother may be coming soon to visit, and she’s a coconut fanatic -I’ll definitely be making this for her 😀

  5. Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert

    I’m a fan of anything that lets me get out my ice cream maker! Our freezer is full of ice creams I’ve made this summer!

  6. Sarah @ The Chef Next Door
