Raspberry Pina Colada Ice Cream

Now that dinner is finished, let’s have some ice cream! Yes I used to be the person who ate just enough dinner to justify dessert and quite often it was a bowl of ice cream. I haven’t always been an energetic baker or ice cream maker so I wasn’t very creative, but I always love something sweet after dinner. This Raspberry Pina Colada Ice Cream is an ode to my sweet tooth.

I have made a valiant effort to refrain from eating sweets after some evening meals but Sundays are special. It’s the night before kiddos head back to school and I wake up in the morning to begin my work-week antics. We need something sweet.

This Raspberry Pina Colada ice cream can be made in a few minutes and with only five ingredients, without an ice cream maker!

 

No Dairy & Full of Textures

My struggle with dairy really puts a cramp in my style. I still crave thick, rich cream filled frozen treats but that really isn’t a good idea for me (unless it’s a rare treat) so I have to use my creativity.

I’m not a huge fan of most store bought dairy free ice creams or sorbets. They lack the texture that I need in my frozen indulgences. It seems to be an unspoken rule that non dairy ice creams aren’t allowed to have chunks! Do they have to strain them all?! For heavens sake, if I can’t have milk give me something. Bits of berries, bites of cookie or swirls of fudge?

The raspberries in this ice cream, even the seeds, make me happy. The pineapple chunks are much appreciated.

This Raspberry Pina Colada Ice Cream is my ideal frozen treat. It’s sweet and it has different textures which make this fun to eat, making me forget that there is no dairy involved. There’s rum in the grown up version so maybe that helps. :)

Don’t get me wrong, I always have and always will love a good coffee ice cream with brownie chunks and all the trimmings but since that’s a rare treat, I can definitely live with this. Happily. :)

Five ingredients, a few minutes and no ice cream machine needed for this Raspberry Pina Colada Ice Cream! And it's dairy free, sugar free and gluten free.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 3-4

Ingredients
  • one 20 oz. can (2 cups) pineapple chunks
  • one 12 oz. bag (3¼ cups) frozen raspberries
  • 4 tbsp. coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. rum, or substitute with coconut milk for a non-alcoholic version

Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add frozen raspberries and mix for 10 seconds.
  2. Add 1 tbsp. coconut milk and 1 tbsp. maple syrup, then mix for another 10 seconds.
  3. Now add 1 tsp. rum, 1 more tbsp. coconut milk and 1 more 1tbsp. maple syrup, then mix for 10 seconds.
  4. Remove raspberry mixture and transfer to a mixing bowl. Using a spatula, press rasperries against the edge of the bowl with the spatula to create a solid form, almost resembling a ball.
  5. Quickly rinse and dry your food processor bowl and mixing blade.
  6. Mix pineapple in the food processor for 10 seconds.
  7. Add 1 tbsp. coconut milk and 1 tbsp. maple syrup, then mix for another 10 seconds.
  8. Now add 1 tsp. rum, 1 more tbsp. coconut milk and 1 more 1tbsp. maple syrup, then mix for 10 seconds.
  9. Transfer to the large mixing bowl using the other side, opposite the raspberries. Press pineapple against the side of the bowl using a spatula form a solid shape in the same way that you formed the raspberries.
  10. Now press the raspberry and pineapple mixtures together, folding several times to combine, but not fully. This will give your ice cream a beautiful mix of yellow and red.
  11. Scoop and serve immediately.

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      Thank you so much! I must admit, I wouldn’t give up dairy if I didn’t have to but I’m sure it’s better for me in the long run. :)

  2. I love that you used coconut milk! What a great ice cream and pina colada is one f my favorites and adding raspberries is just pure perfection!

  3. dinnermomdinnermom04-27-2014

    This sure looks delicious! And, absolutely no sacrifices for anyone that is avoiding dairy!

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      Thank you! That’s absolutely right. I would love to try this with cream. Just once. :)

  4. Love all the fruit in this dish…anything pina colada is a winner in my book!

  5. Oh, my gosh, Dionne, your ice cream looks amazing! I want chunks, too! Dairy or no dairy, this is one spectacular treat!!! xo

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      Thank you Liz. :) The more chunks ice cream has the better, with a few exceptions.

  6. Wow this sounds so good. Since I can’t have alcohol right now I think the non-alcoholic version is going to happen soon.

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      Oh it is so good! The non alcoholic version may have been my lunch once or twice. :)

  7. Shannon RosenbergShannon Rosenberg04-27-2014

  9. taranolandtaranoland04-27-2014

    So very good, with only 5 ingredients, I actually counted them as I couldn’t believe it!! Amazing!!

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      As I was testing and writing I actually had to cut one out! Thankfully it was better this way. :)

  10. hipfoodiemomhipfoodiemom04-27-2014

    I absolutely adore texture in ice cream! this is amazing!

    Great story Dionne. My dad use to tell us no dessert unless we finished dinner. My sister would ask what it was, and if it was Baskin Robbins then she would eat! Reminded me of those summer nights. Great version being dairy free, as we are looking for ways to but back a bit on our dairy. I am using a lot of maple syrup as a sweetener as well. Love it!

    • Dionne BaldwinDionne Baldwin05-01-2014

      Thank you Denise! My brother would always ask how much he had to eat to qualify for dessert. On the nights that he would slip up and say that he was full, he would hold up his hands on the shape of a piece of pie or a scoop of ice cream and say,”I have *this* much room left!”

    Beautiful and tasty ice cream!

  23. I have found that rum extract works great for non-alcoholic versions of things that call for real rum. I am definitely giving this a try. Those gorgeous raspberries in that ice cream are calling my name. I love that you made this with coconut milk, too!
