Marshmallow Coconut Ice-cream

I had some leftover coconut milk from a Squash Curry soup I made a few nights ago, and some marshmallows leftover from a recent backpacking trip.  I decided to put both delicious ingredients to good use in an ice-cream!  I got my ice-cream maker from a guy off craigslist.com a year or so ago for 5 bucks.  He also gave me a crepe maker and electric stirrer....both of which I've never used.  If you love ice-cream and making things and kitchen gadgets, I suggest getting an ice-cream maker, or a freezer bowl for your Kitchenaid (if you have the money).  If you get your machine secondhand from a thrift store, estate sale, or craigslist, pickyourown.org has tons of manuals online for ice-cream makers.

I combined a few different recipes to come up with:

Marshmallow Coconut Ice-cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup coconut milk
A handful of big marshmallows
1 cup half&half

1. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the milk, coconut milk, and marshmallows to a boil.
2. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and chill the mixture thoroughly.
3. Once chilled, mix in the half&half and freeze in your ice cream maker.
