How to Make It

Step 1    

Set a fine-mesh sieve in a large bowl set over a bowl of ice water.

Step 2    

In a large saucepan, whisk the coconut milk and agave syrup over moderately low heat until warm. In a medium heatproof bowl, whisk the sugar and cocoa powder. Gradually whisk in 1 cup of the warm coconut milk until smooth, then whisk in the egg yolks. Scrape the cocoa paste into the saucepan and whisk until blended. Cook the custard over moderate heat, whisking constantly, for about 6 minutes, until very hot and slightly thickened; do not let it boil. Immediately strain the custard into the prepared bowl and stir in the vanilla. Stir the custard until chilled.

Step 3    

Freeze the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers' directions. Transfer the ice cream to a large plastic container and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.

Step 4    

In a small skillet, toast the coconut flakes over low heat until lightly browned, 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool. Serve the ice cream topped with toasted coconut.

Review Body: So what am I supposed to do with the other 2 cups of the coconut milk/syrup mixture? The directions only have me whisking 1 cup into the sugar/cocoa mixture. Even with 1 cup of the milk added I never had a paste. Just a thickish liquid.

Review Body: Great recipe. There is some inference when mixing the coconut milk to temper the eggs then mix all together and heat to a creamy texture (like heavy cream). All batches have turned out delicious and creamy. I can say this is a keeper.
