Pineapple Mint Freeze

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

My mother-in law makes this for my husband when he comes home, for his special dessert. He likes it straight from the feezer- I like to let it thaw a bit. And I must admit- instead of the whipping cream and sugar, I use 1/2 container of cool whip.
