Coconut porter float, to be exact. Sounds like an odd combo until we take a good look at the components. Shall we?

MMMM, don’t mind if I do!  Claire Thomas of Kitchy Kitchen shows us how to put it all together and she even posted a recipe for home-made coconut ice cream over at her blog.

I don’t have an ice cream machine so I’ll have to make this with the store-bought stuff, however, I’m tempted to try this low-tech method of ice cream-making with claire’s recipe.

Either way, it looks like the perfect thing to finish off a sweltering Summer night.
