Pineapple-Coconut Soft Serve


With just five ingredients, this fluffy, effortless dessert comes together in minutes with a flavor reminiscent of a tiki cocktail. For an adult version, swap 1/4 cup of the coconut cream for the same amount of your favorite rum.

Total Time:
15 mins


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh pineapple chunks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 6 cups)

  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened coconut cream

  • 1/4 cup light agave nectar

  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • Toasted unsweetened flaked coconut, for garnish


  1. Spread pineapple in an even layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

  2. Place frozen pineapple, coconut cream, agave, and salt in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped, about 40 times. Process until smooth and airy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Serve soft, or transfer to an airtight container, and freeze until just firm, about 1 hour. Garnish with flaked coconut.

Make Ahead

Soft serve may be stored in an airtight container in freezer up to 3 months.
