Pineapple Ice Cream Float
Dive into summer with this refreshing Pineapple Ice Cream float. Bring your favorite amusement park snack home this year. If you don’t care about the soft serve look, skip the piping bag and just use an ice cream scoop to serve.
- 3 ½ cups pineapple juice (840 mL), divided
- ¾ cup granulated sugar (150 g)
- 4 cups frozen pineapple (980 g), in chunks
- 13.5 oz coconut milk (420 mL)
- Freeze the canister of an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Make the simple syrup: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine ½ cup (120 ml) pineapple juice and the sugar and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat and let cool completely.
- In a high speed blender, combine the pineapple chunks, coconut milk, and cooled pineapple simple syrup. Blend until very smooth, 3-5 minutes.
- Transfer the mixture to the ice cream maker and churn for 25-30 minutes, or until it is the consistency of soft serve.
- Fill 4-6 glasses with ½ cup (120 ml) pineapple juice.
- Transfer the frozen pineapple mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe evenly into the glasses, swirling in a circular motion. The frozen pineapple mixture will float in the liquid, but keep piping until you reach the top of the glass. Top with a fun straw or decorative skewer and serve immediately.
