  • Mix ice cream, chocolate, banana, and 1/2 cup toasted coconut in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until combined, about 1 minute. Press mixture into a 1-quart airtight container; freeze until firm, about 50 minutes. Serve scoops of ice cream sprinkled with remaining 2 tablespoons coconut.

Cook's Notes

Mix your favorite flavors into store-bought vanilla ice cream. You can substitute a combination of whatever you happen to have in your pantry for the ingredients in this recipe. The ice cream will need to soften at room temperature for about 5 minutes, so remove it from the freezer before preparing the other ingredients.
