Homemade Coconut and Walnut Gelato

I had the best of ice cream the other day in Sonoma, California and wished I could simply create my own versions of this treat at home. And guess what happened? I stumbled upon this quick and easy recipe.

Ingredients

300 g of fresh cream
200 g of coconut milk
50 g of dehydrated coconut
100 g of sugar
60 g of shelled walnuts
Instructions
Bring cream to a simmer and remove from the heat. Pour cream over sugar and dehydrated coconut, then let it soak until completely cold. Stir once in a while to melt the sugar.
When the cream is cold add the coconut milk and stir to mix.
Blend the walnuts until finely chopped, then add them into the cream.
Pour the cream an coconut milk into the ice-cream machine and follow the instructor’s directions.
When the gelato is ready scoop it into a container and keep it in the freezer for one hour before enjoying it. Serve with chopped walnuts. {more}

{I get that some folks are allergic to walnut – so feel free to substitute with fresh peaches, or a swirl of caramel sauce or even chocolate chips}
