Do you remember that old commercial…”Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful”? Well, I feel like saying, “don’t hate me because I win stuff”. Yep, besides the chocolate last week, guess what else I won? A Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream MakerYep! I won an ice cream maker! When the lovely Michael Lee West at Designs by Gollum had a Foodie Friday photo contest, I entered, and I won!!!! (Note…does anyone else find it disturbing that I used the word “Yep” twice in this short paragraph? I’m not sure what that says about me.)
So anyway, true confession time. I have the Kitchen Aide Ice Cream attachment and thought that I would give this ice cream maker to my daughter, being a loving and generous mom. But then I saw it. Sorry sweetie, but besides being a loving and generous mom, I also am a complete lover of all totally beautiful and cool looking kitchen appliances. Seriously, it is a beautiful piece of work! And besides I really didn’t like running my Kitchen Aide mixer for 30 minutes every time I made ice cream in the summer, which is a lot. Because, who knows, one of these days, I might actually bake something.
With new, gorgeous ice cream maker sitting proudly on my counter top, I headed straight for David. You know, David of Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet AccompanimentsSince also sitting on my counter was a fresh pineapple, what I found was Pina Colada Sherbet. I don’t need to tell you it was amazing. I do need to tell you that I added 2 tablespoons of rum instead of 1, because it sounded like a darn good idea to me.
Pina Colada Sherbet
- 1 pineapple, peeled and cored, cut into chunks (about 4 cups)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 T. dark rum (or maybe 2)
- 1 t. freshly squeezed lime juice
Puree all the ingredients in the blender. Chill the mixture thoroughly and then process in your ice cream maker as per directions.
Serve it in a fancy glass, sit on your back porch, and pretend you are in the islands.
This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!
