Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Coconut Ice CreamIt’s summertime, and this week it’s very hot.  In our house, this means it’s time to make ice cream.

 

We haven’t made a lot of ice cream so far this summer.  I’ve still been mostly sugar free and we just returned from our second big road trip of the summer, so we’ve been gone quite a bit.  But this week’s heat wave along with my boys’ sweet requests combined to put me in an ice-cream-making mood.

 

My boys requested something with chocolate.  Coconut sounded delicious to me.  So I decided to combine the two, and came up with this fruit-sweetened ice cream treat.  Here’s how I made it:
