Pina Colada Ice Cream

I got an ice cream maker for my birthday this week, so you know what that means! I’ll be making lots of my absolute favorite dessert – Ice Cream!!
This is a twist on a little slushie we used to make when we were growing up. Rather than making it a slushie, however, I decided to make a few adjustments and turn it into an ice cream!
For an even greater treat, try Tropical Floats!

Just a note – this recipe, and many like it, call for heavy whipping cream. That can always be substituted with half-and-half, milk or some other replacement, if you want a lower calorie dessert. Keep in mind, however, that it is the fat content in the cream that makes ice cream so smooth and creamy. Therefore, by using a lower fat substitute, the ice cream may have a different texture or taste. 


Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 TBS coconut extract

Directions:

Combine all the ingredients and mix with a whisk or beaters until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to chill in the fridge for about 1 or 2 hours. Place in your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturers instructions. 
If you want the ice cream to be harder, freeze for an additional 2 hours.
