Cool down on a hot summer night with this deliciously smooth and creamy pineapple sorbet - you'll never believe how easy it is to make!

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut pineapple into 2-inch pieces. Place pineapple and lemon juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Add sugar; process 1 minute or until sugar dissolves.

Step 2

Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon sorbet into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze 1 hour or until firm. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

Chef's Notes

If you don't have an ice-cream freezer, use a covered metal bowl. Freeze mixture 3 hours or until it is hard on the outside but slushy in the middle. Remove it from the freezer, beat it with a whisk until smooth, and return to the freezer, covered, for 4 hours until firm.

Soooo good and way easy! I used the metal bowl method and cut the sugar in half. Tastes so good and was really easy to make with a 3 and 5 year old "helping". My kids think I'm a rockstar- I'll be making this every summer :)

Easy and great way to use fruit, especially when you have too much. However, even with cutting the sugar content down to 1/2 cup only, it was still too sweet for our taste. I added 2 Tbls Lemon Juice for total of 4 Tbls plus fresh strawberries. Result... Delicious Pineapple Strawberry Sorbet. I will use and play with this recipe again. P.S. The Nutrient Listing does not include Sugar !!

This is so refreshing and delicious. Great on a summer day! I actually put in the two extra tablespoons and then forgot to put in the other cup, and it was still really good. It was still tart, but it was just like eating a pineapple. The lemon juice adds just the right touch. Next time I think I might add strawberry along with it as a nice complement.

I've made this a couple of times this summer. It is easy and delicious! I used half the sugar called for and everyone found it sweet enough. I also just used a metal bowl as recommended when you don't have an ice cream maker. It was a sweet, refreshing summer treat!

I made it and used the Splenda blend (50% sugar). Still tasted great.

I have had this recipe in my file for a very long time and finally tried it and my goodness!!! What a find! It is the perfect dessert after a rich meal or, in our case, barbeque. It is so creamy and so refreshing! I served it with a raspberry sauce and it was fabulous!!! I will be making this again and again!!
