  1. Spread the pineapple chunks onto a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze.
  2. In a food processor, quickly pulse the frozen pineapple chunks once or twice to break them up a little. Add and the coconut milk and sugar if using.  Process, adding in the lime juice a little at a time, until you have a creamy gelato. There will be some remaining chunks of pineapple.  Take care not to over process your gelato into a pina colada!
  3. Spoon into glasses and serve immediately.

Chef Tips

To freeze fresh pineapple chunks, cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Lay out the pineapple chunks in a single layer and pop into the freezer for about 30- 40 minutes.

If you make the gelato ahead of time, spoon it into a bowl or container and store it in the freezer. Before serving, to soften the gelato, take it out of the freezer and either microwave it for 10 seconds or put it in the fridge for about 15 to 20 minutes before you want to eat it.
