From Christmas 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold. She says..........

The beauty of this ice cream is its pink hue and bracing flavor, supplied by crushed candy canes and lots of fresh lime. The real surprise is that there isn't any dairy here because it's made with "cream" of coconut. The best news is that you don't need an ice cream maker.

Cook time is freezing time.

How to Make Candy Cane Ice Cream


  1. Place cream of coconut in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth and then whisk in 1 1/4 cups cold water.
  2. Grate the rinds of limes to get 2 tablespoons zest and add to bowl.
  3. Cut limes in half, squeeze to get 1/2 cup juice, and add the juice to bowl. Whisk thoroughly.
  4. Place in a shallow dish - a 9-inch cake pan or pie pan is good. Place in freezer for 1 1/2 hours, whisking every 30 minutes during freezing.
  5. Break candy canes into pieces and add to bowl of a food processor. Process until finely ground but not a powder. You should have about 1/2 cup. Set 3 tablespoons aside and stir the rest into the half frozen ice cream.
  6. Continue to freeze until solid, whisking periodically, about another 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Serve small scoops of ice cream, one on top of the other, in tall champagne flutes. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candy.
