I know the combo of coffee and coconut might seem a little strange but seriously – TRUST ME on this one. It’s delicious! The ice cream itself has both strong coffee and coconut extract along with shredded coconut to amp up the coconut flavor. Then I threw in some chopped up chocolate because you can never go wrong with chocolate, am I right? Side note: I prefer chopping chocolate so it is more flaked rather than adding chocolate chips to chocolate because I can’t stand biting into cold chocolate. But that’s just me so you can add chocolate chips or chunks – whatever you prefer!
