    Anyone try with other fruits? My kids aren’t pineapple fans

    • Jhing Emmeng-Williams

      try banana. you dont need to add anything just frozen banana

      • CJ

        Might be dumb questions but do you peel & chop up the banana before you freeze it? And at what point should you freeze bananas? When they’re a little green or perfectly ripe or past?

        • Sarah

          We freeze bananas for smoothies all the time. Once they are extra ripe, peel them and toss them in a freezer bag. You can cut them up first but you don’t have to. Make sure to peel, cause taking off a frozen peel is a huge pain!!

          • Sarah K.

            YUP! Learned THAT the hard way. Definitely peel first!!

        • Rhonda

          The more ripe the bananas are, the sweeter your “ice cream” will be

          • Jeannette Citta

            I am sure that for frozen smoothys you would want to peel before frezzing but to save bananas for making banana bread I throw them in th freezer we whole. Just defost when ready to use snip off the end and squeeze into your measuring cup. Very intense banana flavor. Natures perfect container

            • Aunt Nini

              That’s exactly what I do, Jeannette. I never peel them first. If you take them out of the freezer and just put them in the sink to thaw for 10 minutes or so, they literally slide right out of the peels like magic. I just snip the tip off with kitchen shears. Super easy and super fast.

        • BakingQueen

          I freeze when it’s way too ripe to eat and I keep mine skin on … People saying it’s too hard to get off it nonsense .. run over warm water take a sharp knife slit thru the peel and it just slides right off!

          • Sheri

            They need to be peeled first if you need them to remain frozen, like with banana “ice cream” or if they are your only frozen ingredient in a smoothie. I just peel all of mine because I don’t know ahead of time if they will end up in bread or a smoothie. 🙂

        • Gloria

          I freeze them when they r way past ripe, peel & put in plastic baggie

        • Nancy

          Freeze bananas with the peel attached.. I put them in the freezer when I know they are too ripe to eat .. Yes I am going to do this dessert tomorrow with pineapple and banana.

      • auntnowmomof2

        I peel my banana before I freeze. 🙂 I freeze bananas that are too ripe to eat.

    • Lydia

      We have made banana “ice cream” this way.

    • Lynn

      I’ve done this with peaches. Thanks for sharing, I had forgot about it. Cant wait till summer 🙂

    • Rochelle

      You can use any frozen fruit you like. I have done black cherries and also strawberries. I add just a little real milk and it makes it like a sorbet.

    • Tracy

      We like frozen mangos. They work great. You can buy them in the freezer section.

    • susan

      i use a bag of frozen peaches or blueberries i like those the best—and you can use strawberries. use the whole bag of frozen fruit

    • cynde

      mango and bananas make a great ice cream–no need to add coconut milk…yum

  2. Ashley57

    Does it taste better with the coconut milk? I already have almond milk at home, do you think that would taste good too?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! Love both almond and coconut! 🙂

      • Ashley57

        Awesome! I think I will buy a pineapple then 🙂

  3. amy

    Yum!! Digging out the blender right now!

    • Cq

      Love my pineapple corer!

    • Jenny

      We have this pineapple corer and it works great!

    • jac

      Be sure to check with your grocery store–mine will cut and core pineapples free of charge at the deli/prepared foods counter!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        So awesome! Love this idea.

    • Pam

      that pineapple corer is awesome. Be sure to get a 2-3 pound pineapple. That size is perfect and you don’t waste any on the outside. Since I got this I haven’t even thought about buying canned pineapple. Super easy!!!

    • Nicole

      Thank you. I missed/overlooked the corer earlier probably because I wasn’t buying that many pineapples at the time. Now that I’ve bought 4 pineapples w/in the last 2 weeks, I can see how a corer could be a good thing to have.

      • Phyllis

        The core is loaded with some very good anti inflammatory properties. Slice pineapple into 1 inch slices with the core intact, cut into chunks and freeze. Great for smoothies!

      • Brenda

        Hey you all, I have never tried this, but have read if you take the “top” of the pineapple and plant it, you will have a great looking plant. I saw where one of you actually are using 3-4 pineapples a week. Imagine the garden you could have.

        • Wendy

          You can grow a pineapple in a pot. Takes about 2 years to produce 1 fruit. Each plant will produce 1 fruit at a time and only 2 total. Twist off the top and put the bottom in water a few weeks to start some some roots and then plant. Fun to see how they grow even if it never produces (may need to force it to bloom if growing indoor).

        • Linda

          I have a beautiful pineapple plant with a REAL pineapple about the size of a grapefruit.
          Yeah me.

        • Judy

          I’ve heard you also can just put the tops of the pineapple into water to make it grow.

        • Daisy

          I have one growing in my kitchen since last year( Pineapple)
          . Slice about 2inches off the top and let it dry out for about two weeks. Put it in some miracle grow potting soil and it will grow and be pretty.

      • patty

        Why get rid of the Core??? It has the most nutrition. The blender will pulverize it, and if you want to eat it plain, just slice it thin.

  4. Noel

    YUM!!! I love Disneyland’s Pineapple Dole Whip! And since I will not be attending Disney’s solid 24 HOURS OPEN for “Rock Your Disney Side” this Friday, I will instead be testing this recipe out! Now off to purchase some pineapple. :]

  5. Tanya W

    Lately we have been making a blend of frozen banana or strawberry with vanilla or chocolate almond milk and a spoon of peanut butter. I dont measure, but the more frozen fruit you add, the thicker it gets. My kids think they are getting milkshakes!!

  6. Elise

    Can’t wait to try this version. I tried a different one that we didn’t like.

  7. Evelyn

    Can we use pineapple from a can?

    • erikam01

      1 medium pineapple = 5C cubed. Googled it because I had the same question.

    • Tiffany

      I just made it with canned pineapple yesterday and it turned out fine. It’s not as sweet with canned pineapples. If you need the extra sweetness you might want to add a little honey.

  8. Michelle

    This is Whole30 compliant too! Yah! So excited!

    • karen

      I am trying the whole30 paleo eating as well. Kind unclean about tropical fruits? Yes, no or sometimes?

      • LaToya


  9. Beverly

    Would this come out good if I used fresh pineapple and then froze it in a popsicle mold? Or would it be too rock solid/hard?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      No I’ve done that too! Great for Popsicles, thanks!

  10. Lisa Pennekamp

    I have never bought a fresh pineapple before. Would buying canned work if you drained it? Is so how many cans would equal a whole pineapple. Otherwise can you buy frozen pineapple already prepped?

    • Susan Rhoads Elmore

      I read in other comments that you could use canned pineapple just not as sweet as fresh! Go recheck comments for more help and good luck and enjoy!

    • Sharon

      I buy frozen pineapple all the time. It’s with the other frozen fruit.

  11. angelahoang12

    mmmm I had some at the boardwalk and it was gooood

  12. Jennifer

    Oh my, can’t wait to try!! Thanks Lina

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome enjoy!

  13. Liddy

    Another silly question, is it preferable to use a food processor? I have ever a regular blender and the Magic Bullet, would either of those work??

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      First choice food processor. Thanks!

  14. Lee Ellen Seeba

    Does the coconut milk make it taste a lot like coconut ,(because my kids aren’t coconut fans)?

  15. Leah

    Do you use coconut milk from a carton or a can? They are two very different flavors and consistencies.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      For this I used a carton. I’d like to canned as well! 🙂

  16. Laurene H

    Use a magic bullet or ninja. You can use any frozen fruit to do this….i don’t think you need to add another other than the fruit and a little bit of water. I make this alot with frozen oranges, strawberries and other berries.

  17. Michaela

    I LOVE Disney Dole Whip!!! Thank you so much for this. I can’t wait to try it…hmmm, think I’m grocery shopping tomorrow. lol

  18. Fairy

    I had this at a friends house but with mango and it was yummy. Mangoes are in season.

  19. Heather c

    Trader joes sells frozen mango chunks that work great for this too!

  20. Tammy

    Oh how perfect for summer!! Thanks Lina 🙂

  21. jenny green

    i can use frozen fruits ? i already have a big bag of frozen pineapples

  22. rachel

    can you use regular milk? my niece is allergic to tree nuts (coconut, almond) and my son is allergic to peanuts

  23. Ann Dee

    Yum! Can you say Pina Colada? My fav!!!! So making this and many other variations this summer. And I love avacado with almond milk and a bit of sugar and ice as well.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum! Trying that as well 🙂

  24. Wendy

    I have Cool Whip in the freezer. Can I use that instead of milk?

  25. Lll

    Costco sells bags of frozen pineapple that is absolutely delish!

  26. jen

    I make it with frozen avocado and banana and almond milk. So yum!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow! Awesome 🙂

  27. Lisa Benge Tunney

    I was wondering would cucumber and melon work too?

  28. MaryHolly

    Anyone tried it with soy milk?

  29. simonbaker

    Peel Frozen banana’s under running water & they peel easier.

  30. beth

    I always freeze my bananas in the peel…I just microwave the whole thing for 30-40 seconds and split it open at one end…it squeezes out beautifully with no mess.

  31. Jo

    Is this made with real coconut milk from a can or the coconut milk beverage sold in cartons? Big difference.

  32. Jenni

    I’ve always wondered if I could make a good alternative at home, thanks for this!

  33. Esther Biggs

    Want To Try This soon!

  34. Teresa Cumberledge

    Could you use strawberries? If so would you use almond or coconut milk or does it matter?

  35. kylee

    what type of coconut milk, the beverage that’s in a carton and the kind that’s in a can and is thicker?

  36. Kelli

    could you use a little spiced rum for an adult beverage? I am using coconut milk in the carton and not sure how the coconut milk will respond to the liquor anyone know or tried this?

  37. martiewrightnetuschil


  38. Eleonore Lee

    Do your self a favour and buy a Yonana. Any frozen fruit put through it and in moments you have soft serve. Best money I ever spent.

    • Christine

      I have a Yonana, are you saying it would be better to make this by just putting the frozen pineapple in and letting it do it’s thing? I’ve only done the bananas so far, have not tried any other recipes with other fruit just yet

  39. Cheryl Norman

    I love this idea! Fresh pineapple and almond milk are two of my favorite things. I will try this in my Vitamix.

  40. sandra

    Walmart (not sure if any other department stores sells it) has a great pineapple tool!
    “PRO FRESHIONALS” pineapple slicer. It actually cores and slices pineapple. It costs about $5.00 and change and the finished product is a ring of pineapple. The core can be
    easily removed to use as well! ENJOY!!!

  41. Mandie Stevens (@Time4mommy)

    Oh yummy and so easy! Can’t wait to make it. Thanks for sharing (found through a fb share)

  42. Curtis

    You can add a scoop of protein powder and make it meal. Plus the protein will make the mix “fluff” a little better. I have used water instead of any other liquid and it works too.

  43. Pat Bennett

    How about frozen strawberries or blueberries right in the freezer at the store!! I drink coconut milk all the time. I bet the berries will be good too. I can not eat pineapple due to getting canker sores, but berries will be my choice!!

  44. Barbara Ferguson

    How many calories in almond milk , and a pineapple , and how much milk frozen pineapple for one one person

  45. Martha

    Not sure if most people are aware that more than 80% of ALL pineapples in Hawaii are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), which are NOT HEALTHY! Try to buy GMO-FREE organic pineapple when you can.
    Bananas are protected by their peeling so they do not need to be organic.
    I am trying to buy the Dirty Dozen organic – They have the MOST pesticides, sometimes over 25 pesticides on each fruit or veggie.

  46. Martha

    This recipe does look yummy!

  47. Dolores Anne Carter

    I used to cut bananas in half for a diabetic friend and put them in a small bag for her to eat while frozen, like a popcycle.

  48. Shirley Shank

    I’m allergic to pineapple, it’s there another fruit alternative that I could use?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Try strawberries or frozen banana is awesome! Just try your favorite fruit. 🙂

  49. Tina Crosswhite

    I can’t wait to try this receipe. Once I get a blender or a food processor. I will try this. Thank You for Sharing.
