Yogurt pineapple ice with mint
Updated: Oct 13, 2021
This is one of those super healthy frozen desserts. Fruit, yogurt, a touch of sugar and herb, super easy and delicious.
This is a smooth ice, sweet-tart in flavor and the slivered mint leaves add the magic. It is light fresh and so easy to eat, watch out! You can serve it as a dessert but I also like to serve it as a palate cleanser between courses.
This thin volume of ice creams, gelatos and ices is quite a favorite of mine, most of them are boozy. Unique flavors and wondefully paired with liquor, tese desserts are for those extravagant dinners that always end well.

1 small pineapple, peeled and eyes removed + a bit for garnish
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 -2 cups sugar, depending on the sweetness of the pineapple
15 mint leaves, sliced
If you can buy a cleaned pineapple, do so. Remove skin, as much of the eyes as possible, and the central fibrous pith. Purée with 1/2 cups sugar to satr with. Taste and adjust sugar as per your palate. You are looking for a sweetness that is delicate and does not overwhelm the fruit.
Mix in the yogurt and mint. Churn in your ice cream machine as per the machine instructions. Alternatively, you can freeze in your freezer, turning it with a fork every hour for 4-6 hours.
Serve garnished with the diced pineapple and a mint leaf or sprig.
