Cinnamon Coconut Ice Cream

So Jesse and I have discovered a new ice cream obsession: cinnamon coconut ice cream.
I mixed up a recipe on a whim a couple of weeks ago, and we were both completely blown away by how delicious it was. Jesse declared that it would go great with pumpkin pie, so then I had to make another batch to take to Thanksgiving dinner–where it did, indeed, make a fantastic accompaniment to pumpkin pie.
We scarfed down that batch pretty fast, too, so it was only after I made it a third time that I finally got a chance to take any pictures. ??
This recipe is amazing on its own as well as with the aforementioned pumpkin pie. I also think it would go splendidly with apple-based desserts such as apple pie or baked apples.
Notes on the Recipe
You can use either coconut cream or coconut milk in this recipe. Coconut cream will make your ice cream even creamier, so I often pick this option when I have a choice. Coconut milk works just as well, too, though.
What if I Don’t Have an Ice Cream Maker?
I get this question from time to time. Honestly my first response is: get an ice cream maker! ?? Seriously. If you like coconut ice cream and think you’ll make it regularly, an ice cream maker is 100% a worthwhile investment. We got this model for our wedding in 2008, and it probably made a few hundred batches of ice cream before it finally gave out in 2016.
I replaced it with this newer model, which I’ve been very happy with. My family LOVES ice cream, and since Jesse can’t eat any sweeteners other than honey, homemade ice cream is our only option. (Plus, have you seen the cost of coconut ice cream in the store? That stuff is expensive.)
If I haven’t convinced you, though, here’s a post from The Kitchn on how to make ice cream without a machine. Give some of their ideas a try and see what you think. I haven’t tried any of these methods myself, so I can’t comment on how well they’d work for this particular recipe.

Serve immediately, or put in the freezer for a few hours to make it firmer. Store leftover ice cream in the freezer, preferably in a wide, shallow container to simplify future defrosting.
By the next day, your stored ice cream will have become very hard in the freezer. Just be sure to plan ahead when you want to eat it—it will probably need twenty or more minutes of defrosting on the counter before it can be served and eaten.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
