Piña Colada Ice Cream (Non-alcoholic & sugar-free)
1 fresh pineapple (use half of the whole pineapple), chopped into small chunks (or use 1 can of crushed pineapple).
5-8 large pineapple chunks, for topping
125 ml (1/2 cup) evaporated milk, chilled overnight
125 ml (1/2 cup) double cream (heavy cream)
415 ml (1 can) coconut cream, chilled overnight
½ teaspoon lime juice (optional)
¼ teaspoon coconut essence
100 g (1 cup) Confectioners’ Sugar Alternative or Icing sugar (I used Swerve)
75 g (2/3 cup) flaked coconut or shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1 ½ teaspoon rum flavouring
- Combine double cream/heavy cream, evaporated milk, cream of coconut, your confectioners' sweetener of choice, and rum flavouring in a large bowl of a standing mixer. Whip together using an electric mixer or a hand mixer until soft peaks form, about 3-4 minutes. Add the lime juice, and pineapple, blending in with a spatula.
- Pour contents into a loaf pan or an ice cream canister.
- Freeze for 2-4 hours checking every 45 minutes and stirring ice cream evenly each time. Ice cream is ready when it is firm and able to be scooped out.
- Serve with toasted coconut flakes, and top with grilled pineapple chunks.
Tip: Toasting coconut/browning pineapple: In a medium saucepan thoroughly sprayed with cooking oil, turn on medium heat. Add the coconut and 5-8 pineapple chunks. Cook until coconut and pineapple browns. You will know it's done because the fragrance deepens when pineapple and coconut cooks so this will only take a minute or so.
Note: This is a sugar-free recipe. To keep this ice cream with no added sugar, it is important to use “evaporated“ milk as listed, not to be confused with condensed milk that is sweetened. Otherwise, to make this recipe regularly with sugar, you can swap out the evaporated milk for condensed milk, and use less sweetener in the recipe.
*Swerve is a sugar alternative (sweetener). It comes in an icing sugar form called Confectioners’ and granulated formulas, and the ratio is the same as using real sugar (1:1 ratio.) I usually use Stevia but I have only used Swerve in a few recipes so far in some baked goods lately and have liked it. You can find it online on Amazon.
