Ha ha ha... :D  I think alcohol hinders the freezing process.. so no rum  ..  boo hoo.  LOL
I do often make my own coconut milk in the Thermomix, and  do a blend with a can when making coconut yoghurt.
You could probably do the a 50/50 mix on the icecream.  I think the pure homemade coconut milk by itself may not result in as creamy an ice-cream.  I'll have to give it a try sometime I guess.   :-))

Surely you could put 1 tablespoon rum in? I use vodka in my icecreams. :D :D Or maybe a rum syrup poured over the icecream, soak the pineapple pieces in rum. Did I say I liked rum? ;D

A couple of tablespoons. It's a bit of trial and error. Some need more some need less, I don't know why.

This sounds lovely. Definitely on the list to try it, as my DH is trying to be dairy-free.

Can you just make it in the Thermomix and freeze the coconut milk and pineapple? I dont have an icecream machine.

I used to make a mock pina colada years ago, where I worked.

Coconut ice cream
orange juice
pineapple juice.

Mix up in a blender.

Yum. ;D

rum sounds good too.

Kristy-Anne...
You don't need an ice cream maker.  It just churns the mixture.  When you make it up, just pour it into ice cubes and freeze.  Then blitz it in the Thermo when you are ready to eat some   ;)
