    You know you are singing it! Just did out loud and got a very disapproving look from my cat. Apparently I do not have the gift of song.  It summer time and who doesn’t want a blended frozen drink?

    Coconut and pineapple: two notorious summer, tropical flavors that play together like spaghetti and meatballsmac and cheese.  Why do they have to be blended and sipped?

    No one ever said I can’t make them into my favorite dessert too and eat them with a spoon.

    While no-churn ice creams are super time saving and totally fabulous in a pinch, I do prefer churned. True, it requires foresight and certainly more time, but in the long, the rich, creaminess is worth it!

    Piña Colada Ice Cream came to me when I saw a coconut ice cream made from coconut milk for vegan frozen treat lovers and while I respect using coconut milk, it doesn’t result in the same creamy goodness that heavy cream will.

    I landed with coconut milk, coconut creme, crushed pineapple and pineapple juice to make the ideal “caribbean island” in a cup. Here you go folks, Piña Colada Ice Cream!

    Ingredients
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 13.5 ounces unsweetened coconut milk
    • 1/2 cup coconut cream
    • 20 ounces crushed pineapple in juice
    • Pinch of salt
    • Toasted coconut (coconut flakes) for garnish
    • Maraschino cherries for garnish
    Instructions
    1. Prepare ice cream maker according to package directions (usually a 24 hour freezing time).
    2. At least 2-6 hours before churning, add heavy cream and sugar to a heavy bottom sauce pan. Stir over low-medium heat until sugar dissolves.
    3. Stir in coconut milk, coconut creme, crushed pineapple (whole can including juice) and salt. Stir until smooth (except for the pineapple pieces).

    4. Transfer mixture to a heat safe bowl with a lid, refrigerate for at least 2 hours before churning. Longer is perfectly fine, just not any shorter.
    5. Churn in ice cream maker for 25-20 minutes. Transfer to a freezer safe dish, cover and freeze for an additional 2-4 hours, although overnight is best.
    6. Scoop and garnish with toasted coconut and/or maraschino cherries.
