I can’t decide whether to call this Malibu Nice Cream or Piña Colada Nice Cream. And you could surely splash in a dash of coconut liquor to make it to be more like the authentic cocktail.
Don’t serve children alcohol. Use liquor if only adults will enjoy the nice cream.
This nice cream is a rich and creamy treat packed with sweet coconut, pineapple and, bananas.
All you need
- frozen banana slices
- frozen pineapple cubes
- coconut milk, chilled on a refrigerator over-night
- blender or food processor – We find a food processor to be better to make nice creams if you don’t have a powerful high-speed blender like *Vitamix or *Blendtech. We use a Braun Multiquick Hand Blender with a set of attachments. It’s a wonder, especially if you have restricted space in your kitchen for multiple gadgets.
How to make nice cream
- Nice cream is made of frozen bananas and other fruit and berries that are blended into creamy ice cream.
- Start the day ahead by preparing the fruit.
- Peel the bananas and slice them thickly.
- Cut off the pineapple skin and the hard inner part. Cut the pineapple into large cubes.
- Freeze the fruit.
- Place one can of coconut milk in the fridge.
We suggest you always keep a can or to into refrigerator as you never know when an urgent need for chilled coconut milk hits.
Also, the fruit keeps well in the freezer for 3 months. Take some time to prepare bananas and other fruit ready for dreamy nice creams and cooling smoothies.
