Pina Colada Ice Cream
It’s ICE CREAM season people! ICE CREAM season!!
Yes, I am screaming. Only because it is the best season EVER. Especially when it combines with berry season but we will get to blending the two soon. We are starting ice cream season with this Pina Colada ice cream!! It’s just fitting right?? And when I say we are starting, I mean expect a LOT more homemade ice cream from this lady, thanks to this recently acquired KitchenAid ice cream bowl.
Creamy coconut ice cream with fresh pineapple puree (or chunks) and some more toasted coconut flakes makes this dairy-free ice cream any coconut lover’s dream. Like these are the things that my dreams are made of 🙂
And I have some really strange dreams these days. I think raging pregnancy hormones do this to people and it’s ridiculously funny when you wake up and realize it was all a dream and no haunted forests exist in the real world or snakes climbing up your legs. But on the bright side, you get to eat a scoop of pina colada ice cream at 4am (insomnia is real) and pat the bump thinking “oh baby boy, how I love what you are doing to me!”
The only thing this ice cream is missing is rum but I couldn’t put it in mine. I beg you to please add some good rum to your pina colada ice cream. You will have all the fun I am missing out on.

I just feel like almost every cocktail should be turned into ice cream…SO MUCH MORE DELICIOUS. ANd I totally approve of 4AM insomnia ice cream consumption…your body obviously NEEDS it. 😛

Oh yes, oh yes. Your pina colada ice cream would go perfectly with my pina colada cake. It’s like a modernist’s pina colada dream team.

Your ice cream recipes are super pretty and super creative! Love this one 🙂

This looks amazing! I love homemade ice cream, but it’s been ages since I had any.
This ice cream would totally make me feel like I’m on the beach so I’ll take a few scoops please!! 🙂
Oh I totally remember having some strange dreams when I was pregnant…although I can’t for the life of me remember the specifics…just that they were super VIVID! I also didn’t hold back on the ice cream one bit when I was pregnant, and this ice cream looks absolutely perfect to fulfill any sort of ice cream cravings!
Denise, most times I can’t remember them either. It’s so weird.
It is getting cold already but I wouldn’t say No to this ice cream!
I guess with all the hot weather lately it is ice cream season…not complaining either! This looks so refreshing and delicious 🙂
It’s been way too hot for May around here too!
yum looks delicious
This is definitely the ice cream of my dreams! Love the tropical flavors! Eeks, hopefully you can get in some more restful nights of sleep before baby arrives.
Thanks Kelly!! And I am taking the insomnia as nature’s way of preparing my body.
I always scream for ice cream, especially a nice boozy one! This looks delicious, Zainab, and soon after that baby boy is born you can have the rum, too. lol And I totally remember the crazy dreams! 🙂
The boozy ones are always the best!!
woooooo ice cream season! i love how this really rings in summer with the tropical flavors!
Wooooo is the right response 🙂
This was delicious! Mine ended up with a bit of an icy texture. Did you have this problem? Any tips?
Hi Sarah, I am glad to hear yours was delicious. Mine wasn’t icy but seemed creamier. Could it be a freezing machine issue? Or maybe the coconut milk? Did you use full fat coconut milk? I think it will be creamier if you used full fat coconut milk and the cream of coconut as well.
Can you do this without am ice cream machine?
Unfortunately, no for this recipe.
Thank you for sharing this recipe! It made for a very refreshing treat. 🙂
Hi! I see that the recipe calls for coconut cream, but in one of your comments you said cream of coconut. Which did you use for the recipe? Thanks!
Hi Maddy, I used coconut cream. but you can use cream of coconut too. I will link to the one I used in the recipe.
