  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • cups chopped pecans
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons Malibu rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Toast the coconut and pecans in a medium (dry) skillet over low heat until golden brown. Stir the coconut and pecans frequently and keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.
  • Add a small pinch of salt to the skillet and stir. Set aside to cool.
  • Whip the heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl with a hand mixer) until stiff peaks form, being careful not to over whip the cream.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk, rum and vanilla extract.
  • Add the sweetened milk mixture into the whipped cream and fold until combined.
  • Add ⅔'s of the toasted coconut and pecans into the the whipped cream mixture and gently fold until well combined.
  • Spoon the ice cream into a loaf pan and top with the remaining toasted coconut and pecans.
  • Freeze for at least 6 hours or until firm.


This recipe only works with heavy cream.
Don't skimp and use half and half as it won't whip to a creamy thickness and it will be watery.
