I have a big sweet tooth. I love cookies, cakes, fruit, candy, and ice cream. And when one or more is combined into a single dessert I’m a happy camper.
Since the weather is warming up and summer is around the corner, I’m sharing a delicious (and super easy to make) Pocky piña colada ice cream recipe today. It combines the flavors of a favorite summer cocktail with Pocky, one of my favorite sweet snacks. If you haven’t yet discovered Pocky, you need to run out any grab a box ASAP. I can’t remember exactly when I first had the chocolate covered biscuit sticks, but I’m pretty sure my husband first introduced me to them. After all, he loves sweets as much as I do.
In this recipe, I used the Original Chocolate flavor Pocky to add a crunch to the piña colada ice cream. Other flavors, like Strawberry and Chocolate Banana, make great ice cream toppers too.
Watch the video below to see just how easy it is to make!
Pocky Piña Colada Ice Cream
1 can cream of coconut
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup toasted sweetened coconut, toasted
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 box of your favorite Pocky, cut into bite size pieces
Ice cream cones
- Before starting, make sure the ice cream maker bowl has been in the freezer overnight. Without this step, you can’t make ice cream!
- Add the cream of coconut and whole milk to the bowl of a food processor or blender. Pulse for a few seconds to combine. Add the heavy cream, toasted sweetened coconut, and crushed pineapple. Pulse a few times to combine the ingredients.
- Turn on your ice cream maker and pour in the pina colada ice cream mixture. Run for 10 minutes and then gradually add in the Pocky pieces. Let it run for 20 minutes, or until the suggested time on your ice cream maker. Once it’s done, it will be the consistency of soft serve. Transfer it into an ice cream container and freeze over night to make it scoopable. Serve in a sugar cone wrapped with the fun printable cone wrappers and garnish with a couple of Pocky sticks.
Look for cream of coconut in the beer/wine aisle of your grocery store (because it’s typically used for making cocktails). It’s already sweetened, unlike coconut cream, which can be found in the baking aisle.
