Gourmet Coconut Ice Cream in Hawaii

Here in Hawaii if you stay in Waikiki there is a little ice cream shop that will stop you in your tracks after the first taste of their "premium gourmet ice cream." I don't know of anyone who would challenge this proclamation...we are all in agreement. Now if you can't come to Hawaii that is not a problem because I found out that you can fedex (overnight shipping) 6 pints of ice cream for $120.00 to states on the west coast. Lapperts is located in the Hilton Hawaiian Village. (I am a country girl so at home we get the ice, gather the eggs, get cream from the dairy near us and start churning the ice cream maker.)

I checked out all of the flavors and went with coconut. Whenever in doubt go with coconut. I love coconut. This is so rich and luscious and w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l-! Just reading the flavors is an adventure there. Their sorbets are gourmet as well and in some of their ice creams they swirl in sorbets.

There is one called Kauai Pie Ice Cream. It is a mixture of Kona coffee icream, chocolate fudge, coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, vanilla ice cream, and cake crunch.

Another called Mauna Kea Secret Ice Cream. It is a combination of white chocolate, brownies, chocolate chips and raspberry sorbet. I could go on and on with all the delightful combinations. For all of us green folks they serve ice cream in paper cups or cones.

They have a web site at

A little sampling of hawaiian quilts in many different color flavors, too. I love the patterns and the meanings behind each fruit and other symbols.

As I will be heading your way soon, I'm going to sate my Lapperts fix and then some. Looking forward to picking up some local fabric too!

That Kauai Pie Ice Cream sounds delicious and sinful!
