    Love its natural.

  2. chroncont

    This looks amazing! I’m dairy free, and I’ve got to try this ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Cheryl

    We tried this over the weekend and it was soooooooooo good!!!

  4. Pam

    Canned or carton Coconut milk? It can make a difference.

    • Amy

      The picture shows a carton, not a can.

    • Diana

      I used canned and it was perfect. I don’t think it makes a difference, just user preference. As long as it’s real coconut milk, I don’t think it matters.

  5. Tracey

    Canned coconut milk is authentic as opposed to carton coconut beverage. Simply Asia is the brand I use. Empty can then add water to desired consistency. Can add honey if want it sweeter.

    • Tracey

      Oops, the brand is Thai Kitchen canned coconut milk ๐Ÿ™‚

    • tasha

      Be careful which brand you use. Do your research. BPA is found in most canned foods, including Thai Kitchen coconut milk. There are 2 brands that do not have BPA added. Another additive that may not be digested well by certain people is guar gum.

      • Priscilla W

        What about Golden Star (green can) of coconut milk, is that a good one?

    • Barbara

      I didn’t know you had to add water to coconut milk! I’ve never added water to mine!

  6. gloria

    Could you make this with peaches

  7. Maey Ann

    You can do this with about any fruit. I love it with bananas and strawberries.

  8. crissy wilczak

    My sister says this is just delish!

  9. Crystal

    Are you using the full fat coconut milk on the can or the reduced fat? Looks yummy and I miss the Tiki Room!!

    • Olive

      There is no need to want anything low fat when it comes to coconut. The healthiest fat you can eat, eat it by the spoonful! I often wonder why anyone would buy low fat coconut milk.

      • Carmen

        I totally agree. I never buy low-fat anything.

      • Mercedes

        Actually coconut fat is one of the worst fats you can eat. It is almost entirely saturated fat which is the least healthy fat. P.S. I just graduated with a degree in Dietetics.

        • Jo Eliza C

          Sorry but you were taught wrong. I have a degree in life and have been healthier than I have ever been since I started using full fat coconut milk and other full fat coconut products.

          • Rhubeeh (@Rhubeeh)

            You are right, Animal fat is the worst fat you can eat, Coconut fat is plant natural, it even helps the brain. People who have seizures are placed on ketogenic diet which is almost just fat.

            • Char

              They have actually proven that eating coconut fat I bad for you…do your research.

          • Kate

            My God, so many of these comments are completely insufferable. (Huge eye roll)

        • JENNIFER

          Actually, the latest research is that it is not saturated fat that causes CAD and strokes but man made fats… like partially hydrogenated fats.. the process where you take a liquid at room temp fat.. and make it into a solid… like Crisco… margarine.. and almost all processed food has it in them.. because it prolongs the shelf life.. our food last longer,, but it kills us… the European countries have banned this process.. but it is still allowed in the U.S…. They don;t have to list it as Trans Fat.. if it is less than 0.5 grams per serving… but it adds up fast.. since it is in so many products… read the ingredients list… of everything you buy… and avoid any partially hydrogenated fats… whether it is canola, coconut.. etc…
          Our bodies can process natural fats… but cannot process the man made ones.. so it stays in our blood streams and causes blockages.. in our arteries and veins…

          • Dee

            I took just plain stick margarine and worked it in my hand maybe 1/2 tsp and then took real butter and worked it in the other hand. I thought I am eating WAX with margarine. Butter is a natural food. . . . . so I’ve resorted to butter for the table and especially for frying veggies they need all the help they can get. Look at our grandparents they ate butter, lard etc. constantly. They also MOVED and labored intensively as farmer and ranchers in the Dakotas.

        • SH

          Mercedes, I took Nutrition. While I “learned” that all saturated fats are harmful, I was wondering why such natural foods as avocado, coconut and olives were classed along with the animal and man-created sat. fat. I have since learned that there is a difference. Coconut, for example, is a medium-chain mon-ounsat. fat, which the body deals with differently. Coconut actually helps to clean out arteries, something the typically eaten sat. fats don’t do. Naturally cured Olives are very healing for the stomach. Coconut fat has been helpful for alzheimers therapy. An MD discovered this–and it beats the meds! Search it out. I have learned that the great push to use poly-unsaturated fats was an economical decision that has colored the thinking for years, from around 1945’s- ’47’s. Research the nations that rely heavily on coconut and coconut fat, such as the Philippines. Compare them to Americans. What is the difference in the vascular diseases. You will find that Philippine people have less heart issues than Am. people.

  10. Candice

    I have real coconuts, will that milk work work?

    • Steve Johnson

      the water inside a coconut is not coconut milk. Coconut milk is made from that water and the coconut meat mashed together

  11. Colleen

    Can I use 2% regular milk?

  12. Tomcat

    What about breast milk?

    • mama of 6

      maybe breast milk with banana most babies do ok with bananas.

      • Sandy Chvojka

        I think Tomcat was being a smart-A**

  13. Sharon

    Can you use other types of fruit?

  14. Debbie

    seriously…questioned if this could be made with breast milk – yuck

    • Tiffany

      Well… If it were for a baby, that could be a valid question. I personally wouldn’t have used mine to see if it worked in case it didn’t. But if you were willing for it to be a potential waste… Why not. My only concern would be the fruit being acidic.

      • Thia

        Too true but breastmilk is gold, I wouldn’t want to “try” and the acid from any fruit would be my only concern.

    • Jo Eliza C

      Breast milk is the most delicious milk! It is sweet and delicate and the most perfect food for a baby to consume!

    • Nicki (@Jaca_Roe)

      I was just gonna say, joke or not, a nursing mother has to try pretty hard to not taste her own breast milk…and I’m here to tell you it tastes better than any other milk I’ve ever tasted. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t drink it by the cup-full, and most people wouldn’t know if they had a drink made from it, but definitely don’t knock it til you tried it. And that would make a scrumptious treat for a baby, too!

      • Andi

        Agree 100%! Definitely the best tasting milk in the world! You can’t judge it if you haven’t tried it.

  15. Dale

    Any fruit or combination of fruits along with any liquid will do you are only limited by your taste buds and dietary choices.
    I run blackberries through a fine screened ricer and freeze the puree in ice cube trays. When frozen I put the cubes in freezer bags. Blackberry is one of my favorite smoothies.
    I will be trying pineapple in various combinations in the future.

    • Pam

      When I was a kid my mom always made black raspberry jelly and she would use a nylon stocking to strain the juice from the mashed/cooked berries….just scooped them into the stocking, knotted the end and hung it up over a pan to catch the juice! There are still cheapie stockings on the market!

  16. Ola Atkins

    Too easy and too good. I’m wondering what strawberries, or bananas or any other kind of berry would taste like. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  17. Ecgaret

    Can you please provide the amount of fruit needed in cups? This sounds delicious, and I have a large bag of pineapple chunks in my freezer already that I can use. If I use soy or almond milk, it’s the same amount as the coconut, yes?

  18. Maria

    Sounds easy and delicious! If I wanted to use other fruits, approximately how much would I use?

  19. elaine

    Does anyone know the approximate calories, carbs or any nutritional information for this snack ? ( for dietary reasons, I keep a food diary and would have to calculate )

    • Barbara Linder

      For a whole pineapple, there are 118.4 g. carbs, 4.9 g. protein, and 1.1 g. fat

  20. Sheryl

    1 pineapple equals 3 cups

  21. michelle

    Coconut milk is full of fat and calories! Would coconut water work or skim milk?

    • Tracy Walters Brimhall

      What’s wrong with natural fat? Just like anything else in moderation is the key. I would rather have natural fat than man made fats any day. And your body does need a certain amount of everything in order to function properly, just like a car needs fuel, oil and water to perform, so does your body.

      • Barbara

        You are so right Tracy!!

    • MaggieSays

      Fat doesn’t make you fat, sugar makes you fat. This recipe does have sugar, in the form of fruit, but the fat in coconut milk is of very little concern.

      • Thia

        Not to mention it’s a healthy fat!

    • j. concree

      Some amount of certain fats can be ok, if not necessary! Think back to the 50’s in the US…I like to cook in that mindset: we used real butter, made roasts and gravy and still people were not as unhealthy as we are today. Moderation is the key!! Using “bad” things will not hurt us if we don’t do it “supersized” all the time!! Live a little, use the coconut milk ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Nicole

    You can then make it like a Whip Float at Disneyland by adding a scoop to a cup of pineapple juice!

  23. jerryg52941

    I think this work with yogurt .

  24. Alan Donovan

    Can you use a different fruit in the place of pineapple?

    • Margie Gentry Wallnofer

      I’ve started making, 10oz. soy milk, 1/4 cup Hershey’s choc., baking powder, 10 ice cubes, banana, or tomorrow I’m using strawberries, and whatever fruit I use, I’m adding that extract. Choices are endless, how bout the powdered cream in the blue box. Happy creating.

      • SH

        Why do you add the baking powder to this delightful recipe?

  25. Amanda

    Can u use any fruit. I love pineapple but i am allergic to it. Could i use peaches or strawberrys?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! Try just frozen banana, so yummy and creamy.

  26. peach

    Wht type of coconut milk i..e.Coco Lopez for pina colada or the goya brand u cook with.

    • dkritter

      You are thinking of coconut cream, that is NOT the same thing as the coconut milk she is using for this recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚ Goya DOES have a coconut milk you can buy, and there are also some Asian brands out there.

  27. Betty Gray

    How much baking powder,Margie Gentry??

    • Sharon

      Not positive, but think Margie might have meant 1/4 cup Hershey’s chocolate powder, not plain baking powder.

  28. Ciara Brogan

    Can I used canned version of pineapple & also could I use passion fruit not together if course?

    • neldavincent

      I make a smoothie with two thirds ice cube and 8 oz of milk any kind of fruit and some splinda in a blender or with no fruit just add vinella to taste.it is very good and low fat.

  29. Amby

    Yuuuum!! I’m going to try this this weekend! I also love and drink coconut milk every day. ^_^ thanks for sharing!

  30. Jenny

    I can’t do coconut milk..makes me sick. So I use Kefir instead. You can find it in the dairy section. It’s a culture like yogurt. I use 2 cups pineapple, 1/2 banana, 1/8 cup kefir. I’ve to use other fruit to like strawberries. Also if you want it creamy just add a slice of avocado..it tastes like full fat ice cream.

  31. kim

    can you use coconut water?

  32. Lela

    Have you looked at the calorie count on the coconut milk? I usually it to about a tablespoon or two.

  33. Michelle

    How well does it freeze after making? Also does it get hard or stays soft?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      No it gets hard. Still good, just different texture.

      • Michelle

        Thanks… That’s what I needed to know… Plan on trying it both ways…

      • Luz

        Oooo, I bet it would be great for popsicle molds! I’ll do that IF there is any leftover ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Lisa

    Is the Pineapple Whip a good option for a pre-diabetic? I guess it is a better option than regular ice cream.

  35. Justice

    Can you use pineapple already frozen in chunks or would a real pineapple work better?

  36. Carmen

    Which coconut milk do you all use and can it be purchased in the grocery store?

  37. ro

    I wish I had read far enough down to see the that I might have needed to water down the coconut milk. I use Thai, and it was really thick. Didn’t care for the taste of it with the pineapple.

    • ro

      My bad. I used Chokoh coconut milk.

  38. Leanne Siegrist

    I made the kind with pineapple juice and condensed milk…tasted good but was kinda greasy…this sounds better

  39. sherry

    I am so so sad! I got the pineapple and the coconut milk, cut up the pineapple into tidbits and put them in the freezer the night before. I was so excited the next day ( a hot Sunday afternoon) to serve this to my family on the front porch. But alas… twas not to be!!! After putting the tidbits in with the coconut milk and turning it on I turned to the sink to wash the bowl the pineapple had been in. All of a sudden my beautiful stainless steal blender that I have loved for three years just stopped. I guess it just couldn’t take the pressure of being the source of delightful taste for the family. So anyone have any ideas on a new stainless blender that can please the family and won’t break my wallet?

    • Cher Vormwald

      Sherry….get the cheap, original NINJA. The $39.00 NINJA is my favorite kitchen appliance. I could not cook without it. I’ve used mine EVERY DAY. For seven years and it still crushes ice into snow. Hope this helps.

      • Margaret Morgan Martin

        Cher, I agree. I have that NINJA and wouldn’t trade it for any Vitamix or anything, it is priceless. That was the only thing my daughter put on her Christmas list this year after using mine one time to crush some ice.

  40. Sheri Gaber

    LOL, I am cracking up at all the comments regarding “simple two ingredient dole whip”

  41. Colleen Almaden

    I made this with plain light soy milk since I am on Weight Watchers Simply Filling Technique…absolutely delicious! I shared your recipe on my page and it was a big hit…tons of shares! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! <3 http://www.facebook.com/Simplyfilling

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Colleen!!

  42. Anna feeney

    I am ready to make this tonight but wonder how quickly I need to serve it. And what time frame others have been successful with from making to serving.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I would make and serve right away. Thanks!

  43. Robin

    Anyone have a carb/sugar count on the Pineapple Whip? I’m diabetic, so I have to be careful.

  44. Mary

    Why is Disney getting credit for this? All it is, is a virgin piรฑa colada. The cocktail was around long before Disney put a brand on it. Seriously, look up piรฑa colada. Exact same recipe except with rum!

  45. dkritter

    Just made this tonight and I added a half frozen banana for some sweetness and it was AWESOME! Topped it with some shredded unsweetened coconut. YUMMY!

  46. donna

    not a coconut fan so I use almond milk in my smoothies. Sometimes I use skim milk. I keep fruit in the freezer so it’s ready to go. Had a fruit salad for a brunch and used snack size zip top bags to freeze single serving smoothie size batches of the leftovers.

  47. Judy

    Sounds delish…and lighten up people about how much fat is in coconut milk and side effects…I’m sure having this once or twice a month for the hot summer months isn’t going to have any serious long term effects….geez

  48. sharyn garrison mcclure

    I made this with frozen strawberries..skim milk..1/4 c. splenda and it was delish..put the rest in freezer..when ready to eat it..microwaved it for a few mins. and it was ready to eat!!

  49. Pamela

    do you think it would freeze well? As a single person It would take a while to finish. sounds fantastic and can’t wait to try it. May add some coconut oil it is soo good for us. I’m sure other have said this

  50. Esther

    Thank you so much for the recipe being a dialysis patient I truly appreciate this low fat alternative thanks again.
