Do I Have To Add Coconut To Ice Cream

No, you are more than welcome to make a straight pineapple ice cream and leave off the coconut.

I loved the coconut added in, but you don’t have to do it.

Sweetened Coconut or Unsweetened Coconut

I used sweetened coconut in this recipe. Since the only sugar is mostly from the fruit you will find if you use unsweetened it might offer a bit of a bitter taste.

If you are worried it will be too sweet, maybe do half unsweet and half sweetened. This is one of my favorite pineapple frozen desserts, and the coconut really elevates the flavor.

How to Store No Churn Ice Cream

You need to keep your ice cream covered and stored in a proper container. I used a loaf pan that I double wrapped in foil. But there are many ice cream containers you can buy and use as well.

Keep your ice cream pushed back far on the shelf in the freezer. Otherwise, if it is at front, each time you open and close the freezer you run the risk of developing ice crystals on top of the ice cream.

No Churn Pineapple Coconut Ice Cream

Yield: 1 loaf pan of ice cream
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

Dive spoon first into this pineapple coconut ice cream! Sweet, creamy, and bursting with tropical flavor in every indulgent bite. If you are a fan of pineapple ice cream, this recipe is a must. No ice cream maker required!


  • 1 1/2 cup fresh chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut, shredded
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. In a stand mixer pour in your heavy whipping cream. You will turn on high and whip your cream until it forms stiff peaks.
  2. Now pour in your sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Use a spatula and fold it in.
  3. Toss in your freshly cut pineapple and coconut, and mix one more time.
  4. Pour in your loaf pan or no churn ice cream container. Then cover tightly and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or better if you let it sit overnight.
  5. Once fully froze, scoop up your pineapple ice cream, and serve.


To scoop ice cream easier, allow it to sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes. Get your spoon hot with water, and use that to scoop to make it easier to scoop your pineapple coconut ice cream.

You can place plastic wrap over the ice cream before you place the lid. The reason being is it can help prevent ice crystals from forming.

You can use canned pineapple in replace of fresh. Just make sure to drain all the juice of the ice cream.

You can leave the coconut out if you want a straight no-churn pineapple ice cream option.

The ice cream can store for 2-3 months in the freezer. I recommend placing it on the back of the shelf of the freezer. This will help prevent ice crystals forming on top.
