Pineapple Creams

Pineapple is one of my favorite things to eat.  I love this fruit!  Fresh, out of the can, the juice, icecream, pineapple cake, dried slices,...etc.  I love anything pineapple.  One of my fondest memories is going to the Dole Pineapple Plantation on the island of Oahu with my husband and eating pineapple icecream while standing in the pineapple field.  That was some yummy stuff!  I came across a pineapple icecream recipe on pinterest (that the creator had concocted while trying to copy a dessert she had tasted at Disney World.   Well, I have never had one of those particular desserts, but like I said, I love pineapple.  So, I decided to try it.  It is really good!  Its not very sweet, but just enough.  I froze it first as the original recipe suggested and then I froze it overnight.   I like it both ways! But, I think I like it better when its softer.  This is really yummy! Enjoy!

2 -20 oz cans crushed pineapple with juice
2 TBSP Lemon juice
2 TBSP Lime juice
1/3 cup white granulated sugar (I think I would like to add a bit more next time)
1 and 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream, whipped
Drain the pineapple, and reserve the liquid. Set aside, adding 2 TBSP of this pineapple juice into a blender, or food processor. (I used my Ninja!) Into the blender add drained pineapple, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar and 2 TBSP pineapple juice. Mix until smooth.  Pour into ziplock bags so it can lay flat and freeze quickly.  Whip the cream and refrigerate until needed.  When its slushy (about 1 hour and 45 min for me) pour into the whipped cream and gently stir until its all incorporated.  Freeze again in ziplock bags or container of your choice...for at least an hour. It will be the consistency of homemade icecream.  Its really yummy!


  1. Might have to try this one, Niki!

  2. This one is on my summer list! THANKS!

  3. The dessert she was trying to copy was probably a Dole whip. You can also get them in Disneyland, and they're absolutely amazing:)
