Rum-Macadamia Ice Cream with Grilled Pineapple and Coconut
With only six ingredients, including sweet dark rum and buttery macadamia nuts, this ice cream is simple to make and can turn
your kitchen into a tropical Caribbean island. Serve with grilled pineapple and top with toasted coconut for an amazingly
delicious flavor combination.
Infusing the syrup with lavender imparts a subtle floral flavor to this ice cream. Look for fresh ricotta cheese at gourmet
markets, or you can make your own—go to CookingLight.com for our homemade version. It lends the ice cream wonderful richness.
Serve with Easy Raspberry Sauce, and garnish with lavender sprigs.
Mascarpone's silky thickness lends a custardlike texture without the trouble of cooking custard. Except for dissolving sugar
in mango nectar, this is a no-cook recipe. Press the puree through a fine sieve for a smooth texture.
