This is exactly what I was looking for.... and I can't believe how easy this recipe is to make. I was originally looking for a coconut pineapple ice cream recipe, but thought I would first look for just a coconut ice cream recipe. When I saw a couple of the reviews that mentioned adding in crushed pineapple, I decided to try it too. I made the recipe exactly as written, but right before pouring into my Cuisinart ice cream machine, I added a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple (I bought the kind in juice, not syrup) . But first I used my wire mesh strainer to drain the pineapple juice off the pineapple, and I pressed the pineapple gently to make sure it wasn't too wet before I added it to the creamy coconut mixture. I didn't want the extra liquid to ruin the recipe results. I turned on the machine and poured in all but a cup of the mixture. The pineapple adds volume so I was afraid it may overflow if I poured all of it in. After about 20 minutes it was thickened nicely. I put it into a quart ice cream carton (I bought a bunch of these online - they are perfect for storing your ice cream - you know the white cardboard round ones with the lids). Into the freezer it went. Of course, there was a bit left over that my husband and I divided up and ate immediately - it was every bit as delicious as the coconut pineapple ice cream we had at a fancy ice creamery in Florida!! Absolutely amazing flavor - this one does not disappoint with weak flavors.
