 4 ingredients

You won’t BELIEVE how ridiculously simple this recipe is! What are the 4 ingredients?

  1. one pineapple
  2. a can of coconut milk
  3. white rum
  4. coconut extract (to really amp up the coconut flavor – YUM)

To prep for this tropical treat, simply chop up one juicy ripe pineapple and freeze it on a large baking sheet.

TIP: you know your pineapple is ripe and ready when you can easily pluck a leaf out of the top.

And be sure to refrigerate your can of coconut milk the day before (so the cream separates.)Pina Colada Soft Serve (Vegan & Paleo) PrettyPies.com

No-Churn!

You *don’t* need an ice cream maker. But you DO need a food processor. I use this Cuisinart model and it has held up fantastically over the years.

You may have already guessed… but here’s the secret to making this AMAZING soft serve: blend everything in a food processor! 

Yep, that’s IT.

For the spiked soft serve, simply let it freeze for an hour or so to firm up. The alcohol keeps it soft and scoopable, so you won’t be left with a pineapple ice cube, ha.Pina Colada Soft Serve (Vegan & Paleo) PrettyPies.com

For the VIRGINS

Yes, you can make this without the alcohol, and it’s still JUST as yummy.

And another added benefit, is there’s no waiting! The spiked version needs to chill a little before and after to get the right consistency.

What I used:
Food processor https://amzn.to/2vkjo3Q
Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk: https://amzn.to/2JSf0fG
Pineapple - be sure to use a RIPE and sweet pineapple, otherwise you may need to add some sweetener (maybe 1-2 Tbs coconut sugar or 15 drops of stevia)
Servings: This makes about 3-4 servings. If you need to make more than that, I would make it in 2 separate batches, as I'm not sure it would all fit in a food processor.
Storage: This soft serve is meant to be enjoyed as soon as it's ready and not stored, as it may turn too hard in the freezer. However, you may be able to freeze it and blend it again in a food processor to bring it back to a soft serve consistency.
