This luscious blend of coconut and pineapple screams summer as you devour this Creamy Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream

Creamy Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream

Tropical taste in an ice cream? Yep.

Take a bite of Creamy Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream, close your eyes and for a moment, you might be transformed to a beautiful tropical island, waves lapping around you.

In fact, when I was eating it recently, I was instantly projected forward to July, the middle of summer and when my trip to Florida will occur.

I felt like I was there already, lying on the beach and soaking up the sun.

(she says as she peers out the window at the dreary, grey, rainy day with dropped temps.)

Yes, yes that would be nice.

But in the meantime, I’m going to be enjoying this ice cream.

Creamy Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream Recipe

I had a recipe for a coconut ice cream that we’ve made several times. I thought, you know what would make this ice cream better?

Throwing some tropical fruit into the mix.

We only went for the pineapple this time, but the first time we did the combo, we also added toasted coconut flakes, so if that’s your thing, I say go for it.

Today is letter I and I just couldn’t not do an Ice Cream post. I was saving this one for summer, but you know – no.

It needs to be out there. You need to make this.

You need to slip away to a tropical paradise like I did.

It just wouldn’t be fair for me to keep it to myself for when I feel like posting it. Not fair at all.

So enjoy!

I added a shot of rum in mine and no coconut flakes. 😋

I’m lactose intolerant and sensitive for autoimmune issues. Can this be made dairy free? I can use coconut milk for the milk but what could I use for the heavy cream/half n half? It’s tough to find yummy recipes that are safe for me to eat. Thank you!

I really am not a nutritionist and do not know what you would substitute for the heavy cream/half n half. I'm really not sure if there is anything that exists that would work and make the recipe correct. Again, I do not know if there is something, but doesn't mean there isn't. Good luck on your search. I would imagine it has to be very tough for you, and I'm so sorry I don't have a solution. <3

I made only two kinds of ice cream so far, and this recipe makes me wonder what are the differences of results when ice cream recipe was boiled, and not boiled or not cooked? For example, I am guessing this one doesn't require cooking and bringing to boil the base ingredients, because all are liquid? No egg, no sugar in the content makes it easier to blend? And then when recipes call their contents to boil once or twice, what is expected to happen? Thanks a lot if anyone could enlighten me!
