Easy Pineapple Banana Ice Cream

Serves 4

Why shell out big bucks for a frozen tropical treat when you can make this easy pineapple banana ice cream in the comfort of your own home!


  • 1 whole pineapple
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 small container (about 5.3 ounces) yogurt (I used coconut flavored)


Cut the top off the pineapple and carefully cut the skin off each side. Cut the pineapple into bite-sized chunks, cutting around the core in the middle. Peel each banana and cut them into small slices.

Place all fruit into a zip-lock back or freezable container, and freeze for at least 6 hours.

Once fruit is frozen, add it to a food processor with the yogurt and blend until it becomes creamy, 2 to 3 minutes.

Ice cream is best when eaten immediately but can also be refrozen in a freezer-safe container for up to 5 days. It may need to thaw for a few minutes before eating after it’s been frozen.
