Grilled Pineapple Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

November 20, 2016

Author Notes: Slap your pineapple on the grill after you've cooked your other food. Once the pineapple is cool, a quick whiz in the blender and a nail-biting half hour in the ice cream maker give you mouth-watering, soft serve ice cream. Crissy

Grilled Pineapple

  1. Cut pineapple into 8 long wedges. Stab each with a skewer and spray with cooking spray. Grill on a low grill until edges are starting to blacken. Remove from grill, remove skewers, and allow to cool.
  2. Do ahead: You can chop and refrigerate or freeze until needed.

Ice Cream

  1. Combine all ingredients (including grilled and cooled pineapple) in a blender and whiz until smooth. Chill at least 4 hours.
  2. Process in an ice cream maker until soft-serve consistency. Serve immediately in chilled dishes, or transfer to a lidded container and freeze until solid (about 4 hours).
