Overall, this is a great recipe but I will probably tweak it a little bit just for our tastes. If I add the coconut flakes next time, I will probably cut it in half and I may try crushed pineapple instead of the tidbits just to get a more even pineapple flavor throughout. If you love a chunky ice cream, add the whole cup of coconut flakes. Otherwise, if you like a creamier, less chewy ice cream then you might want to omit the coconut flakes altogether. Either way, it is still a trip to a tropical island and who can say no to that? Especially on a hot summer day! It would be delicious served over grilled pineapple.
Pineapple Coconut Ice Cream
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 14oz Can Cream of Coconut (found in the alcohol isle)
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream or half and half for a bit less fat
- 1 Cup Sweet toasted coconut flakes (optional)
- 1 8oz Can pineapple tidbits, drained and pat dry with a paper towel.
Easy and delicious!
