A Quart Container

A Pot

A Metal Bowl

An Ice Cream Scoop

Martini Glasses



2/3 Cup Organic Creamed Coconut

How To Put It Together:

1) Fill a pot halfway with water; place over medium heat. Bring the water to a simmer.


2) Separate 5 eggs; save the whites for another use. Place the egg yolks into a metal mixing bowl and using a hand mixer, beat until they are light yellow. Place the bowl over the pot of simmer water and beat for about 5 minutes. Add the birch sugar and beat until it is dissolved. Remove the bowl from the heat and beat for another 5 minutes or so to cool the custard.

5) To serve: Place a scoop of gelato in a martini glass and garnish with lime slices.


6) Serve and enjoy!

Nina’s Tasty Tip:

Transfer the gelato from the freezer to the fridge about an hour or so before serving for a perfect, scoopable consistency.
