Pina Colada Frozen Gelato

Saturday, June 18, 2011
I'm a little lazy when it comes to making ices, I want it easy, fast and still delicious. This is so refreshing and very smooth, almost like a frozen Pina Colada drink but in a wonderful solid confection. If you love coconut rum that will enhances\ the flavor of this wonderful frozen confection.... hope you enjoy this as much as we did!


3 cups chopped fresh pineapple (14 ounces)
1/3 cup well-stirred canned unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar
1/3 cup light rum or coconut rum
1 tablespoon of coconut put through food processor so its really fine

Equipment: ice cube trays (I scoop it out with a tablespoon for serving)
Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into mold of choice. Freeze 30 minutes. Garnish with more coconut.

  8. This sounds good and guess what. My daughter was just at a dried fruit and nut store outlet and bought my a whole pound of coconut flakes for $2. I think I see gelato in my future.
