As you’re planning your day to explore Maui’s Road to Hana, one quirky stop you might want to include in your plans is at Coconut Glen’s Here, you will find dairy-free ice cream homemade from coconut milk.
I got to meet Glen, the laidback owner, on the day I was touring the road to Hana with No Ka Oi Adventures. Glen is passionate about running an environmentally sustainable business. All his products are locally and organically produced. Just one example of Glen’s ingenious application of his sustainable business is that Glen serves his ice cream in a coconut shell with a spoon carved out of coconut shell, too.
I took the following photo so you could see the coconut ice cream flavors that Glen was serving the day I was there. I tried a scoop of lilikoi (passion fruit) with a scoop of the original, which is coconut flavored with bits of coconut candy. They were both delicious.
If you like coconut, you’ll love Glen’s coconut candy — toasted, sweetened grated coconut flakes and it is so, so good! I got so distract by taking photos and making notes that I forgot to buy some after tasting the sample.
Coconut Glen’s is open everyday from 11am to 5pm. If you pull up during these hours and his shop appears to be closed, follow the instructions on the sign that says, “Honk if you’re hungry.”
Coconut Glen’s is located before you get to Hana in Nahiku, between mile markers 27 and 28 on the Hana Highway. It’s on the right side of the road as you’re driving towards Hana.
