Quick to make and sure to delight, this creamy 5 minute pineapple sorbet can be whipped up at the last minute for a sweet, healthy dessert.
This year I’ve been giving my food processor a bit of a workout making these quick and easy 5 minute sorbets. I showed you last year how I make a quick watermelon sorbet, and it’s become one of my most popular posts with good reason; it’s the perfect way to treat yourself to something refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s not too sweet, and it’s about as healthy as a dessert can get.
later on, though, I did get even healthier when I shared with you how to make a refreshing mojito sorbet. It uses cucumber, so it has less sugar than the watermelon sorbet, and it can be enjoyed by people on the strictest of diets, even the candida diet that doesn’t allow for the sugar in most fruits.
Sometimes, though, you want something creamier, and something even easier. In those cases my coconut pineapple sorbet is the perfect choice.
Why is it quicker and easier?
Because I can go to my local Aldi store and buy a package of frozen pineapple chunks, so there is no prep work involved at all! This truly is a 5 minute pineapple sorbet!
Because it’s so easy, you can imagine that I’ve tried making it several times by now. I have made it with coconut water and coconut milk, and I have made it with the addition of frozen bananas and without. While I thought I would like it best with coconut water, in the end my favorite is with coconut milk. As for the addition of the bananas, I like it a lot both ways, but tend to make it without them just because it’s easiest. I don’t always have frozen banana ready to use.
When preparing this pineapple sorbet for serving to other people, you can choose to make it ahead and fill a hollowed out pineapple half with the sorbet. Once frozen solid, it can be cut into quarters. It’s best when taken out of the freezer a little while before serving so that it isn’t frozen solid and is creamy again.
No matter how you choose to serve it, though, it is amazingly sweet and creamy with very little effort.
Quick and Easy Pineapple Sorbet
- 400 g frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 dash coconut milk
- 1 banana Cut into chunks, frozen (Optional)
Add the frozen pineapple chunks to your food processor along with the frozen banana chunks, if you're using them, and start processing them with you food processor.
Slowly add in enough coconut milk to get a creamy consistency, but not so much as to make a slush rather than a sorbet. It should only take a dash of coconut milk.
Serve immediately or store in the freezer for later.if you choose to store it, take it out several minutes before serving to allow it to reach a creamy consistency again.
