Homemade Pineapple Soft Serve Ice Cream Recipe

Enjoy a refreshing and tropical treat with this easy-to-make pineapple soft serve ice cream. This recipe captures the vibrant flavor of fresh pineapple and the creamy texture of soft serve, perfect for a hot summer day or any time you crave a fruity delight!


  • 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks (or 20 oz. canned pineapple in juice, drained)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (or heavy cream for a richer flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (for added tang)


  1. Prepare the Pineapple: If using fresh pineapple, peel, core, and cut into chunks. If using canned pineapple, drain well. Freeze the pineapple chunks until solid (about 2-3 hours).
  2. Blend Ingredients: In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine the frozen pineapple chunks, coconut milk (or heavy cream), honey (or agave syrup), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Add lemon or lime juice if using.
  3. Blend Until Smooth: Process the mixture until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor occasionally. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more coconut milk or cream, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency.
  4. Serve Immediately: For the best texture, serve the soft serve immediately after blending. Scoop into bowls or cones, and enjoy!
  5. Optional – Firm Up in Freezer: If you prefer a firmer texture, transfer the soft serve to a container and freeze for 1-2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes to prevent ice crystals from forming.
  6. Garnish and Enjoy: Add your favorite toppings like shredded coconut, fresh pineapple slices, or a drizzle of honey, and serve!
