Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
2 cups


  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen pineapple chunks

  • 1 (14 ounce) can unsweetened coconut cream, chilled

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 ½ tablespoons 1-2 tablespoons rum

  • 2 tablespoons toasted coconut


  1. Place pineapple, coconut cream, lime juice and rum (if using) in a food processor. Process for 1 to 2 minutes, then stop and scrape down the sides. Process until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes more. Add up to 1/4 cup water, if needed, to help process the fruit. Sprinkle with toasted coconut before serving.


To make ahead: While the nice cream will have the best texture if served immediately, it can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Allow it to soften at room temperature for about an hour before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
