Make and share this Helado De Pina(Pineapple Ice) recipe from Food.com.
- Peel the pineapple.
- Remove the heart.
- Cut the rest of the pineapple in small pcs.
- Crush the ice.
- Use the blender to puree the chopped ice, the pineapple, sugar, and lemon juice.
- For best results, the pineapple should be very cold.
Loved this! We are pineapple people and so perfect for the hot weather here. I reduced the recipe to 5 servings. Bought pre cut pineapple (10.5 ounces), halved the sugar. Will definitely be making again. Thank you LL for sharing.
OK, this is going to be my go-to dessert for the rest of the summer. I froze the pineapple pieces for 4 hours before pureeing and used slightly less sugar as my pineapple was literally dripping sweet juice. Loved how easy it was and everyone enjoyed it. There's not much left, but I think I'll have it with a little cachaca or rum mixed in.
Couldn't be simpler or more delicious. That leftover pineapple on my countertop became an extraordinary dessert for dinner tonight in just a few minutes with the fewest number of ordinary ingredients. I think expensive ice cream may be a thing of the past around this house.
