The pina colada ice cream was well received at a dinner we attended. The Mister said that this recipe is a keeper and great for hot summer days.
Pina Colada Ice CreamAdapted from several recipes from the Allrecipes website
- 2 bananas
- 20 oz pineapple chunks
- 3/4 cup cream of coconut
- 1 cup rum (I used Bicardi Limon Citrus Rum.)
- 12 oz evaporated milk
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups whipping cream
In a blender, blend the bananas, pineapple chunks, cream of coconut, and rum leaving the pineapple coarsely chopped. Pour half the mix in one bowl and half in the second bowl. Mix the evaporated milk, whole milk, and whipping cream. I just poured the milks in the blender and gave it a quick whirl. Pour half the milk in the first bowl and half in the second. Stir to mix the fruit and milk. I then put the bowls in the freezer according to my ice cream maker's directions to get the liquid very cold. Approximately two hours later, I attached the ice cream maker to the mixer and poured one bowl of cold liquid into the ice cream maker, creating the first batch of ice cream. After refreezing the ice cream maker, I attached the ice cream maker to the mixer and poured the second bowl of cold liquid into the ice cream maker, creating the second batch of ice cream.
