Pineapple-Coconut Gelato

we finally had some coconut milk in the house. Tonight was Spicy Coconut Shrimp.

I blended the pineapple prior to adding it to the mixture since we don’t really like chunks! I think next time i’ll just use juice instead of the actual pineapple! Let me know how you like it!

Pineapple-Coconut Gelato

Try this gelato in a cone with shredded coconut sprinkled on top.


1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
2/3 cup coconut milk


Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; cool completely.

Combine the pineapple and milk in a large bowl; stir in sugar syrup.

Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer, and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Spoon gelato into a freezer-safe container; cover and freeze 1 hour or until firm.
