Summer feels soooooo close I can almost taste it. I’m already dreaming about less rush, warm lazy days at the beach, and afternoons spent painting with the kids outside. And what treat is synonymous with warm summer days? Ice cream of course! Ice cream is one of our favorite desserts, but I try not to make a habit of keeping tubs of it around the house. Lately when the girls get home from school I’ve been making a batch of vegan, dairy-free, “nice cream” with just two ingredients. It’s so easy to make it’s ridiculous. And it tastes creamy, frozen, and amazing. My favorite version is this pineapple flavor. Have you tried the Dole pineapple whip at Disneyland? It kind of reminds me of that. Only without any added sugar. I have a feeling I’m going to be making this healthier refreshing dessert all summer long.
We keep a lot of fruit in the freezer for smoothies, so the ingredients are already on hand most of the time. All you need is some yogurt and frozen pineapple. I used SoDelicious plain coconut based yogurt, but you can use any that you like. I like non-dairy yogurt best for this ice cream, because the enzymes in pineapple can make it taste bitter when combined with milk. I also find dairy upsets my stomach, though the rest of my family is fine with it.
Just dump and blend. Seriously, that’s it! My Vitamix has a tamper that I use to push the pineapple down. This vegan ice cream recipe is very thick, so you will need a high powered blender or food processor. If you try this and your blender still won’t turn, try adding a peeled orange or a little coconut milk.
You can transfer your nice cream to a freezer container to enjoy later,
Or eat it straight away.
