Pineapple Kulfi

Pineapple kulfi for 6-8 people


1 small can of crushed pineapple (squeeze all the juice out of can, add only pulp)
1 15 oz tub of cool whip
1 can of condensed milk

For the toppings ( optional)
A few sliced almonds

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, freeze for 6-8 hours and garnish with almonds  and serve chilled.


When you doing for a party, you need to double up crushed pineapple but try to reduce condense milk and cool whip, since they make kulfi over sweet.

example : 
for 30 people go for below measurements.

3 small can of crushed pineapple 
2 15 oz tub of cool whip
2 can of condensed milk
