  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups full-fat coconut milk (1 can) (can substitute whole milk if desired)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus 2 Tbsp
  • 5 yolks from large eggs
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced into quarters
  • 1 cup blueberries, halved
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff (see recipe below)

Marshmallow Fluff

  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar


  • In a medium saucepan, heat cream, coconut milk, and 3/4 cup sugar over medium heat. Stirring constantly, let mixture reach just the point of simmer and remove from heat.
  • Lightly whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl.
  • Slowly pour about half of the warm cream/milk mixture into the bowl with the yolks, whisking continuously. Then pour egg/coconut milk mixture back into the saucepan with the rest of the milk.
  • Continue to cook over low heat, while still whisking. When the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon, after about 5-7 minutes, remove the saucepan from heat.
  • Strain cream mixture into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap so that plastic is touching top of cream (this will prevent a skin from forming). Refrigerate until chilled, at least 5 hours.
  • Right before processing ice cream, mix strawberries and blueberries with the remaining 2 Tbsp sugar and let sit for about 15 minutes.
  • Once cream mixture is chilled, freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When ice cream is almost frozen, mix in vanilla, strawberries and blueberries and marshmallow fluff.
  • When ice cream is frozen, remove to airtight containers and place in freezer for at least 4 hours to continue to harden.

Marshmallow Fluff

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together egg white, corn syrup, and salt on high speed for 4-5 minutes until it thickens quite a bit. Your mixture will have started clear, but after beating, it will turn bright white.
  • Mix in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream of tartar on low speed, until combined.
  • Store in airtight container in fridge until ready to use. Can be stored refrigerated for up to 10 days.
