Pineapple Sorbet

Do you remember when Kroger had 10 for $10 pineapples? I do!! Over the course of the week I purchased 13 pineapples, most of which ended up diced and in the freezer.

They have since been used in many, many smoothies. And now…sorbet. Though you can sub in any fruit you would like and I think it would work really well. Peaches, banana, and berries come to mind :)

Unlike ice cream making, sorbet was a breeze to make. It is also way, way lower in calories – and naturally fat-free! My only complaint is it didn’t last long in our house!

Pineapple Sorbet adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod and Burning Down the House, originally from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

Directions:

Puree the pineapple chunks, water, and sugar in a food processor or blender until smooth. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least one hour. After the mixture is chilled, prepare in your ice cream maker accordingly. Yield: 10 servings (1/2 cup each).

After being away from the clinic on Thursday and Friday last week, yesterday was crazy busy. I also had several long phone calls from my car insurance company and the insurance company of the woman who hit me. Ugh. What a mess. Thank you for all of your well wishes. I had a headache all day, but it could’ve been a lot worse. I’ll count my many blessings!

Question: Sorbet or ice cream?

P.S. Congrats to Gina, Candid RD, who got engaged last night! Happy for you, girl! :-D

Have a great day!

    I wish my supermarket would have pineapples go on sale. This sorbet needs to be IN MY BELLY.

    Ugh to car crashes. Just glad you’re okay!

    Matt’s been dying to get an ice cream maker which, to me, could be dangerous. All that dairy and fat and sugar and creaminess in the house would be bad for my waistline and my acne. and yet I love looking at ice cream, fro yo, and sorbet recipes. Pineapple sounds awesome because it’s so refreshing. My personal fave is lemon. I love the tartness.

    I don’t have an ice cream maker, but I’ve made sorbet before and have just gave it a second whiz in the food processor. I LOVE the sound of pineapple sorbet. That’s a flavor I’ve never tried, but pineapple juice is my fav. Good idea to freeze all those.

    And OMG CONGRATS GINA!!!

    I’m definitely a sorbet kind of girl! :) Mmm, I’d love to try it with pineapple…sounds super refreshing!

    I’m sorry to hear about the accident, but I’m glad that you’re ok, Nicole!

    Dang, now I have to buy an ice cream maker!
    I hope that you’re accident is resolved much faster than my wife’s this year. What a PITA!

    P.S. Congrats Gina, and many blessings on your engagement!
