  • 2 cups fresh orange juice (approximately 6-8 oranges)
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned)
  • zest of 2 oranges
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a blender, combine the orange juice and pineapple chunks and blend until you achieve a smooth consistency.
  2. Now take a mixing bowl and combine the fruit blend with granulated sugar. Mix until the sugar dissolves completely.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream, whole milk, orange zest, and some small pineapple chunks. Gently stir the mixture to combine all the ingredients.
  4. Add the vanilla extract to the mixture and stir once more.
  5. Cover the mixing bowl with a lid or plastic wrap.
  6. Place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until the mixture is thoroughly chilled.
  7. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker once it is properly chilled.
  8. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to churn the ice cream until it reaches a creamy consistency.
  9. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a shallow dish and place it in the freezer. Stir vigorously every 30 minutes until it thickens and becomes smooth.
  10. Transfer the freshly churned ice cream into an airtight container.
  11. Place the container in the freezer for a few hours to allow the ice cream to set completely.
  12. Serve the Orange Pineapple Ice Cream in bowls or cones, and garnish with fresh fruit slices or a sprig of mint for an extra touch of elegance.


Can I use store-bought orange juice for this recipe?

While using fresh orange juice is recommended for the best flavor, you can use store-bought orange juice as a convenient alternative. However, be sure to choose a brand that provides 100% pure orange juice without any added sugars or artificial flavors.

Can I substitute the pineapples with another fruit?

Absolutely! If you're not a fan of pineapples or prefer a different fruit, you can experiment with substitutions. Some great alternatives include diced mangoes, sliced peaches, or even chunks of strawberries. Just ensure that the substitute fruit complements the citrus flavor of the oranges.

Can I reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe?

Yes, you can adjust the sugar quantity to suit your personal taste preferences. If you prefer less sweet ice cream, you can reduce the amount of granulated sugar. However, keep in mind that sugar plays a role in the texture and creaminess of the ice cream, so reducing it too much may affect the final result.

How long should I freeze the ice cream before serving?

To achieve a firm and scoopable consistency, it's recommended to freeze the ice cream for at least 4-6 hours, or until it sets completely. However, if you prefer a softer, more melty texture, you can serve it after 2-3 hours of freezing time.

How long can I store the ice cream?

When stored in an airtight container in the freezer, this homemade ice cream can be enjoyed for up to 2 weeks. However, for the best flavor and texture, it's recommended to consume it within the first week.
