My dad loves pineapples. Whenever I see that my family has gotten some pineapple spears or a fresh one, I know my dad is going to be the first one to try it. So, dad, this Pineapple Ice Cream recipe is just for you! 🙂
It’s really easy to make, doesn’t require fresh pineapples (canned is fine), and all you need is a few ingredients, a food processor, an ice cream machine, and you’re golden!… Like the color of pineapples! Heehee!
What really brings out the pineapple flavor is when you saute them… The juices run out of the fruit, mixes with the sugar… And it makes it oh so yummy <3
It’s great to use your food processor or blender to chop the pineapple into itty bitty pieces, but you can manually mash them if you don’t have either of those in your arsenal.
When the pineapple is done with the ice cream machine, remember that you can’t enjoy it just yet! (Unless you love the soft consistency… Then, by all means!) You’ll have to let it sit in the freezer for a while in order to get that ice cream consistency.
This ice cream is so yummy and hits the spot!… But I do have to forewarn that this ice cream is a little flaky because you don’t add too much cream and you don’t make a custard out of it. It’s a little healthier this way, and if you don’t mind that it doesn’t come out in perfect little scoops, then this treat is for you!
Enjoy! <3 (And if you need a reference to an awesome ice cream machine, you should totally buy the Nostalgia 4-quart Ice Cream Maker!) 🙂
