Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Halve pineapple lengthwise; remove fruit. Remove and discard pineapple core. Chop pineapple.

  • Place chopped pineapple in a blender container with lime juice and sugar; cover. Blend for 2 minutes or until mixture is completely smooth. Press through a strainer; you should have about 3 cups puree.

  • Transfer mixture to a 2-quart ice cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's directions (see Tip). Allow to ripen for 4 hours. Freeze.

  • To serve, scoop into chilled dessert dishes or frozen pineapple shells.


Tip: If you do not have an ice cream freezer, prepare pineapple mixture as directed. Freeze mixture in a shallow baking dish. Break frozen mixture into large chunks. Transfer frozen chunks to a chilled large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth but not melted. Return mixture to baking dish. Cover and freeze at least 3 hours or until firm.
