Instructions

Pie Crust

  • Put mixture into a 9 or 10 inch pie pan and press evenly (approx. 1/8 in thick) onto the bottom and up the sides, so the pan is completely covered.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour to prevent crumbling.

Toasted Coconut and Almond Ice Cream

  • In a pan, over medium heat, toast the coconut until browned. Make sure to stir continuously so it doesn't burn. Set aside.
  • In a pan, over medium heat, toast the almond slices until browned. Make sure to stir continuously so they don't burn. Place on a piece of wax or parchment paper.
  • Melt chocolate chips in a microwaveable dish and drizzle all over the almond slices. Place the sheet of almonds in the freezer for 5 minutes (until chocolate is firm).
  • In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Add condensed milk, coconut milk and vanilla and whip until smooth.
  • Fold toasted coconut and toasted almonds with chocolate, into the cream mixture.
  • Place the mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for approx. 3-4 hours.
  • Remove from freezer and pour ice cream mixture into the pie pan, on top of the pie crust. Make sure to leave space for the ganache topping.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Add chocolate chips to a medium bowl.
  • Pour heavy cream into a microwave safe bowl and heat for approx. 45 seconds.
  • Pour warm heavy cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes.
  • Whisk until combined and smooth.

Putting the Pie Together

  • Remove pie dish from the freezer and pour ganache on top of ice cream. Use a spatula to spread it evenly.
  • Place pie pan back into the freezer for approx. 1-2 hours or until the ganache is firm.
  • Sprinkle coconut flakes and sliced almonds on top, as garnish.
