Today I decided to make Pineapple and Coconut Ice Cream. It has a very Island feel and it tastes creamy and delicious! I think that Ice Cream is my favorite summer time treats. It is even better when it is homemade. Don’t get me wrong I love to go out with the family to get ice cream, but there is something special about making it at home for your family.

Pineapple and Coconut Ice Cream

Ingredients:

1 can of cream of coconut
1 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup crushed pineapple drained

Directions:

Combine cream of coconut, half and half and flaked coconut. Pour into a ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturers directions.
When mixture is finished, add pineapple and freeze in a air tight container overnight.
