In medium saucepan over medium-low heat, cook coconut milk and half and half just until steaming (this is important- you are about to add the eggs, and if the mixture on the burner is too hot, it will cause the eggs to curdle). Meanwhile, in medium heatproof bowl, whisk egg yolks and sugar until combined. Pour half of milk mixture into bowl with egg yolks and sugar, and whisk until smooth. Then pour contents of bowl back into saucepan and return to burner on medium-low. Cook custard an additional 3-5 minutes, until you can run your finger across a rubber spatula dipped in the custard and it leaves a trail. Remove saucepan from heat and add cocoa powder. Whisk until combined and no lumps remain. Add vanilla extract and red food coloring and whisk. Transfer mixture to a large, coverable bowl. Add 1 cup heavy cream, but do not stir. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator to chill 3-4 hours. Once mixture is thoroughly chilled, transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Then transfer to coverable, freezable container and put in freezer at least 3 hours before serving. Makes about one quart.
