Can I use fresh pineapple instead of canned?

Absolutely! Fresh or canned pineapple will work just as well in this recipe and provide the same delicious flavor. Just make sure to use ripe fruit – underripe pineapple will not have the same sweetness or flavor. We recommend using a food processor or blender to chop the fruit into small pieces, but you can also mash it by hand if desired.

Once the pineapple ice cream is firm, you can store it in an airtight container for up to three weeks. For best results, allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.
