  • 1 can coconut milk (13.5 oz.)
  • 4 bananas - ripe but not overly brown
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted*


  • Slice bananas into 1/4 - 1/2 inch pieces and cut pineapple into similar sized pieces. 
  • Pour coconut milk into an ice cube tray. 
  • Put pineapple, banana pieces, and coconut milk into freezer and freeze for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until mostly solid, but not rock-hard. DO NOT freeze for longer than this or your blender or food processor will not be able to blend it!
  • Remove from freezer and add frozen pieces to food processor or high-power blender. Blend until creamy. 
  • Add toasted coconut* and pulse once to mix into ice cream.
  • Either serve immediately as a soft serve type ice cream or re-freeze in a bread pan for a more solid version. If re-freezing, remove from freezer 15 - 20 minutes before serving and allow to sit on countertop to make scooping easier.
