In this part of the world it is always hot, during this period, even hotter. The mind and body is craving for coolers. My personal choice is Singapore famous Iced Tea / Ice Lemon Tea. Its my son's favourite too, there is always a stock at home as he has it any time, even at an unearthly hour of the night. That is something mamma loves watching. The mamma thing also loves sipping them on her way back from walks / jogs. The lady loves her own company, a lazy lunch with herself sitting at a cozy corner of the local food court, with her headphone on.... watching people around.
There is one advantage of staying in a tropical country, we get those juicy, yum, thirst quenching, fresh fruits throughout the year. I find the pineapple, watermelon here too good. I am too fond of the red beautiful, juicy fruit and can survive on it alone. The other day I got a pineapple to prepare a cold appetiser along with few other ingredients. The whole of the pineapple was not required obviously. It was then I thought of preparing a pineapple ice cream with the rest of it. Watermelon is always there at home, so pampered us with a pineapple ice cream served with watermelon. It was an absolute bliss.
Let us prepare together the very easy to do Pineapple Ice Cream with Watermelon.
Pineapple : I/4 of a standard size
Pineapple[chopped] : 3tbsp
Fresh Cream : 300ml
Condensed Milk : 100-150ml
Watermelon Pieces : 2cups
Peel, wash and chop the pineapple. Transfer to a grinder and grind to a paste.
Add the cream and condensed milk to it, beat for 2-3 minutes at intervals.
Transfer to a covered container and freeze for 2 hours.
Take out and transfer to a mixer. Beat for 3-4 minutes at intervals.
Transfer to the container, add the chopped pineapple. Cover and freeze for 5-6 hours.
Take out, stand for a minute or two before scooping out.
Serve with chilled, cubed watermelon.
