WOO-HOO! Today is Ice Cream Day – although many of us feel that every day should be Ice Cream Day!
In honor of this very special occasion, we have a recipe for you to make at home – the refreshing Island Navigator (made with ice cream, of course!) from our friends at Disney Cruise Line. We are also dishing up our favorite distinctly Disney frozen treats from around the world – past and present. Enjoy!
Island Navigator from Disney Cruise Line
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1/3 cup coconut cream
- 6 to 8 ice cubes
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt
- Pineapple triangles, maraschino cherries, for garnish
- Combine pineapple juice and coconut cream in blender. Blend to combine.
- Add ice and pulse until ice is crushed. Add ice cream and blend until smooth.
- Garnish with pineapple triangles and maraschino cherries, if desired. Serve immediately.
