Getting reviews...
  • Yield: 1 quart.
This is a fast recipe to prepare and has a fabulous different flair! It calls for coconut milk, sweet potatoes and Jamaican dark rum, which are all indigenous to the Caribbean. My family loves it, mon!



  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cream, milk, eggs and sugar and cook stirring over medium heat until mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon (aprox. 10 minutes).
  2. In blender puree sweet potatoes (including the sauce in package), ginger, nutmeg, vanilla and rum together until well blended and smooth. Stir into cream mixture and cool. Freeze in electric ice cream maker. Place a couple of scoops in a dish top with nut mixture and garnish with a few gingersnap cookies.
  3. Topping: 1 small jar nut topping for ice cream or finely chopped pecans
  4. Garnish: Thin Ginger Snap Cookies
