Homemade Pineapple Soft-Serve Ice Cream

2 cups frozen pineapple chunks (fresh or store-bought).

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk.

1/2 cup chilled heavy whipping cream.

Equipment:

Food processor.

Freezer-safe container (optional).

Step 1

If using fresh pineapple, core, peel, and cut it into 1-inch pieces.

Step 2

Arrange the pineapple pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet, ensuring they don’t overlap.

Step 3

Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 4

In a food processor, combine the frozen pineapple chunks, sweetened condensed milk, and chilled heavy whipping cream.

Step 5

Blend briefly to break up the pineapple, then continue blending until the mixture is smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed.

Step 6

This should take about 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 7

For the best soft-serve texture, enjoy it right away!

Step 8

Serve in cones or bowls, and top with your favorite toppings such as chopped nuts, maraschino cherries, or a drizzle of pineapple juice.

Adjust the Texture:

For a slightly creamier consistency, let the frozen pineapple sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before processing.

Storage:

If you have leftovers, transfer the soft serve to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 2 hours. It will become more solid, so let it soften slightly at room temperature before scooping.

Enjoy your homemade pineapple soft-serve ice cream, a delightful treat that brings a taste of the tropics to your home!
