“This pie is so great for the summertime, it tastes like a frozen pina colada! I have tried it with banana as well, but I prefer the pineapple.The fresh pineapple is great, but it works just fine with canned. This is adapted from Bon Appetit magazine, the July 1997 edition. Plan ahead, as prep time does not include freezing time. Well worth the effort for that special summer party. Hope you enjoy!”

Using electric mixer, beat mixture until cool and thick, about 5 minutes.
