pineapple coconut ice cream recipe
We never all agree on what kind of ice cream to get at the store. Making homemade ice cream allows us to make smaller batches. Three of us agree that this pineapple coconut ice cream recipe is great. The other prefers our homemade cherry and strawberry ice cream.
We make this ice cream in a blender as everything is dumped into one container (less dishes). You can make this with a hand mixer if you want too. If you have all the ingredients ready to go, this recipe can take just a few minutes to make. Waiting for the ice cream to freeze is the longest part of this recipe.
For a smooth taste, you can mix the pineapple and coconut into the blender. Or, add in at the end, for chucks of fruit. We like it both ways.
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups pineapple chunks
1 cup toasted coconut
In a blender, add the heavy cream and sugar. You can also use a manual blender to mix the cream and sugar together.
Blend on a medium for about 60 seconds. Check and ensure the sugar is mixed. Mix in 30 second increments until the sugar and cream are mixed.
Put the ice cream into a bowl and add the coconut and pineapple and mix.
Pour the ice cream into a freezer safe container.
Place top on container and freeze overnight.
Note: You may need to let the ice cream sit for a few minutes before serving to allow it to soften enough to scoop.
