  • 1 3/4 cups coconut milk
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup


  • Chill the coconut milk in the refrigerator for several hours so it’s cold when you mix together the ingredients.
  • Remove the zest from a lime and a lemon with a microplane or other fine zester. It’s easiest to do this before removing the juice from the fruit.
  • Squeeze the juice out of the lemon and lime. I use this citrus juicing tool, which removes more juice than an old-fashioned lemon juicer. You should get about 1/4 cup of juice out of the lemon and the lime, but if they’re small you may need to cut into another one to get enough juice.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to combine.
  • If you have an ice cream maker, churn the ingredients according to the manufacturer’s instructions. I use the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can simply proceed to the next step.
  • Freeze the mixture in a shallow container for a few hours to solidify. If your freezer is very cold, this will become rock hard after several hours. Soften it by placing it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before scooping.
