  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) unsweetened coconut, toasted

  2. Combine eggs with sugar and heat over low heat.

  4. Allow to cool and add coconut, almond extract and cream. Stir, then refrigerate until cold.
  5. Mix well and pour into an ice cream maker (Donvier is recommended), stirring frequently so it won’t stick to the sides.
