I want Samoa Ice Cream!

Hi friends! How’s the weather today? It’s sunny here, so I’m making ice-cream! I love ice-cream no matter what the weatherman says. Sun. Rain. Wind. Hurricanes. Snowstorms. Swarms of locust. I’m an equal-opportunity ice-cream eater, especially if that ice cream is made with Girl Scout Cookies! I always want more! Or, in this case, “Samoa” Ice Cream. Get it? Samoa Ice Cream. Because it’s made with Samoas and you’re going to want “some more” of it…? No? Ok, it was a bad pun, but I promise, it’s really good ice cream!

I teamed up with Melissa’s Produce and The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles to come up with this recipe. Doesn’t it look good? All that deep rich chocolate, Samoa cookie chunks and coconut flakes. Mmmmm!! Did I mention it was made with Samoa Cookies?

I have a special place in my heart for Girl Scout Cookies! Not just because they’re spectacularly delicious, but because buying Girl Scout Cookies helps fuel the Girl Scout Cookie Program and helps girls fulfill their dreams, follow their passions, and change the world! I may have told you, growing up, I was a Girl Scout and as an adult, I was a troop leader for my daughter from Daisy’s through Juniors. We’ve sold a lot of cookies through the years! Just like these girls from The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles.

Girl Scout Cookies not only help Girl Scouts earn money for fun, educational activities and community projects, but also play a huge role in transforming girls into G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™ as they learn essential life skills that will stay with them forever. While fun is part of the experience, giving back to their communities has been a hallmark of the Girl Scout Cookie Program since the first-known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts in 1917. That’s 100 years of selling cookies!

You can help the next generation of girls fulfill their dreams—and change the world. With every box of Girl Scout Cookies you buy this year, you help support tomorrow’s courage-boosting, confidence-inspiring, character-building, make-the-world-a-better-place experiences. I for one, am proud to support these girls and encourage them to learn, grow and become their very best!

Of course, they may need a little ice cream along the way. Who wouldn’t? Changing the world is hard, but I have faith the Girl Scouts are up to the task!

Samoa Chocolate and Coconut Ice Cream

A deep, rich chocolate ice cream with plenty of coconut flavor. The big chunks of Samoa cookies running through the middle, take it over the top!

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 22oz container Cream of Coconut (NOT Coconut Milk)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Melissa's Produce Coconut Flakes
  • 1/2 box (approx. 9 cookies) Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, crumbled

In a blender, combine whole milk, Cream of Coconut and Cocoa powder. Blend until well combined.

Pour mixture into a large bowl. Stir in heavy cream.

Cover bowl and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.

Add mixture to your chilled ice cream maker and churn according to the manufactures directions, adding the coconut flakes and crumbled cookies during the final few minutes.

Once done, transfer your ice cream to a large freezer-safe container (I used a loaf pan) and smooth out the top.

Cover with two layers of plastic wrap and freeze until firm. (At least 4-6 hours)

Allow to sit on the counter for a few minutes before scooping.

This ice cream will keep in the freezer for about 5 days.

*NOTE: Do not use Coconut Milk. It won't give you the same consistency or sweetness. If you can't find Cream of Coconut (look in the mixer aisle, it is used to make Pina Coladas) you can substitute an equal amount of sweetened condensed milk and 1 teaspoon of Coconut Extract.
