Ice, ice, baby! Introducing a delightful treat that will transport you to a tropical paradise with just a single ingredient and a clever kitchen hack: Shaved Pineapple Ices!

This ingenuous trick takes advantage of the natural sweetness and refreshing flavor of pineapple, turning it into a creamy indulgent treat (no joke!). And here’s the twist: Instead of using a blender or juicer, I simply grate a frozen pineapple spear using a microplane. This hack not only saves time and effort but also creates delicate, fluffy ice crystals that literally melt in your mouth while delivering a burst of fruity goodness. Enjoy your “superfood ices” plain or with shredded toasted coconut for a piña colada-themed treat.

• Your pineapple spears have to be frozen solid for this trick to work. If it’s too cold to hold as you create your shavings, wrap a paper towel around the part you’re holding.

• I find that using a microplane is best; a box grater may not create the same fluffy, shaved effect.

• The shavings will melt pretty fast so make this right before serving!
