At Home: Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I was always intimidated by homemade ice cream.  But I was recently gifted a neat little battery-operated ice cream machine and Keith kept asking, "when are you going to make ice cream?"  So I researched for simple recipes to try as my next experiment for What Micky Eats...At Home.  You only need five ingredients to make this creamy and dreamy Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.  It is dairy-free and can also be vegan.  Coconut and chocolate lovers will scream for this ice cream!  Makes 1 pint.

Mintwood Place

After his longtime stint as Michel Richard's right-hand man at Citronelle and Central, city food-lovers can now enjoy Chef Cedric Maupillier's cooking at Mintwood Place.  Keith and I headed out for Summer RW to try his French spin on American fare.  Closest Metro is Woodley Park-Adams Morgan.

Menu MBK

Located in the Penn Quarter neighborhood, Frederik De Pue's Menu MBK is a local market, casual bistro and six-seat chef's table, offering three ways to enjoy the best seasonal ingredients and cooking that the Mid-Atlantic has to offer. The third and fourth floor BistroBar is a casual gathering place boasting thoughtful bistro fare and a diverse menu of beer, wine and cocktails, and where I recently went to lunch for DC Restaurant Week.  Closest Metro is Archives.
