This week I noted an easy Piña Colada Frozen Dessert recipe I learned at the Betty Crocker Kitchen in Minnesota. The perfect dessert if you want to extend your summer.

It’s summer in a bite and the perfect dessert for a romantic candle light dinner. 


Piña Colada Frozen Dessert

  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 16 squares)
  • 1/4 cup no-trans-fat 65% vegetable oil, spread stick or butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 quart (4 cups) vanilla no-sugar-added, reduced-fat ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract or 1/4 cup rum (I prefer Bacardi)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract, if desired
  • 1/4 cup toasted* flaked coconut, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix cracker crumbs, vegetable oil spread and sugar. Press into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish. Bake about 10 minutes or until dry. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  2. In large bowl, beat ice cream, pineapple with juice and extracts with electric mixer on low speed just until blended. Spread in baked crust. Freeze about 6 hours or until firm.
  3. Remove dessert from freezer about 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with coconut

This recipe takes about 20 minutes to prepare; however, you need at least 6 hours to freeze so make this the evening before you serve it.

    Ladies, you are such an inspiration…I get all watery mouth looking at these dishes…Over here in the Boonies, I am making Marta’s dulce de leche crepes, which she made at Baking With Betty. They’re a Sunday morning treat for my little one, who like her Mami, loves dulce de leche!

    Happy Weekend and Sabroso Saturday!
