    Default Pineapple coconut frozen yogurt recipes?

    I bought a nice whole pineapple and a big tub of non-fat plain yogurt
    and want to make some frozen yogurt since it's my new favorite treat. I
    want to keep it as low sugar as possible and play on the non-fat of the
    yogurt. I don't like sugar subs so just a smaller about of real sugar
    than some of the recipes I've found would be good. The first one I
    found was way too much work which involved egg yolks (in yogurt?) and
    cooking it. Also called for canned pineapple rather than the fresh one
    I got. Any ideas? I have bagged coconut, I don't have coconut milk but
    could go get some. I do have the coco lopez stuff which I know has
    sugar so that could replace any added sugar.

    Cute note - my cats haven't seen a whole pineapple before and it was on
    the counter top and one of them kept going to the floor under the
    counter looking at it like it was an alien. I'd go into the kitchen and
    he'd run like he was afraid I was going to sick it on him or something.
    I had to put it on the floor for him to get a good look and sniff at
    it. LOL

    I have made it by just putting the yogurt in my ice cream maker and
    turning it on. I would think you could do the same w/o any other
    additions except for the pineapple. I would puree a bit of it and then
    add some that was chopped a bit bigger.

    Thanks. I also want to incorporate coconut. The pineapple I think is
    easy, probably similar to how I did the strawberry raspberry frozen
    yogurt. I'm just not sure what type of coconut to use. I think I'd
    like some toasted coconut flavor in there, too.

    My exact thoughts- just shred some up and toast it to add along with
    the pineapple- maybe a splash of rum if you have it. What time will
    this be ready?

    I don't have any experience in this area, but why don't you like sugar
    subs?

    Maybe you should switch to a lower-octane catnip....

    Bring home a few live blue crabs and set them in the kitchen floor for
    the cats. They love playing hockey with those things.

    Coconut is a very powerful flavor, you'd only need a teaspoonful of
    Coco Lopez at most with a cup of yogurt.

    LOL! Just wanted to let you know, Cheryl, that I enjoyed that funny story.
    I had cats for about 35 years and I could just picture the scenario. :-D

    I just haven't found one I like. I learned years ago when offered sugar
    sub for iced tea that I liked it unsweetened. Since then I have tried
    newer sugar subs but I just can't get the ratio right so it's usually
    too sweet. I can judge regular sugar better.

    I tried tonight but I put the yogurt and poured in my pureed pineapple
    and by the time I got the coconut part ready, it was already freezing on
    the sides of the ice cream maker and the stirrer part wouldn't operate.
    I'm new to ice cream making so I know now to mix it all together in
    another bowl then pour it in and put in the stirrer and turn it on. I
    had to pour off the half frozen mix and let the goodness stuck on the
    freezer bowl thaw, and the bowl is back in the freezer to try again
    tomorrow. I saved the part that was stuck on the bowl and poured it in
    a glass when it partially melted with a little rum for a sweet treat.

    Cats are unique characters. This very same cat is so freaked out by
    almost everything and I just don't get why so it must be instinct or
    something. I got him and his litter mate (he is Rhett, and she is
    Scarlett) when they were 7 weeks old. A guy I know found a litter of
    four under his shed and he wanted to keep them together until they were
    9 weeks, but the mom was gone, and they were all very sick and when one
    would get better, the others would spread the sickness back to it, and
    so on and so forth. So he decided to adopt them out early. So being
    her since 7 weeks of age I can't imagine why he is so timid, and his
    litter mate Scarlett doesn't have the same personality he does. Rhett
    is a HUGE cat. Not fat, though one vet called him obese, but I know
    obese in cats. They have fat folds on the back of their necks to the
    point you can't feel a neck. His neck is slender, but he does have a
    hanging tummy. All cats do. It is what makes them good jumpers. It's
    just that he is built both in size and muscle like a bobcat. His vet
    says he's an Ocicat. Maybe. Heritage unknown and his sister, while
    different in color combinations, has the exact same coat pattern. She's
    also large for a female cat. The other two littermates found were
    exactly the same as my two. Male, brown tabby with spotted tummy,
    female, gray tabby with spotted tummy.

    Anyway, back to Rhett's weirdness. The first time I turned on my ceiling
    fan in the living room the first spring I had him, he totally freaked
    out! Since then, anything he hasn't experienced, or just doesn't seem
    right to him, he runs, hides, or paces, and has big wide eyes and I just
    feel so bad for his fear of everything. What could have caused this? I
    have no idea.

    Ming is like that, and it is sad. If he ever got out, it'd be a
    total disaster. I try to keep things calm for him. Heck, I've
    even been known to arrange furniture so it is in familiar patterns
    just for him. Really.

    We have a cat like that- he's afraid of most people too. My husband
    brought him home after a coworker found him alone under a dumpster- he
    was probably only 4 weeks old. He has been treated very well, and is
    still skittish. I think it's just a personality trait.

    You know, if (scratch that out and replace with when) I get
    another cat/cats, he/she/they will also be timid or otherwise
    undesired by some. Timid and I get along well. I am very quiet
    and would provide about the least-scary environment for such a
    cat. I also think the overtly friendly cats are taken sooner,
    while the shy ones tend to be overlooked.
