Pineapple Sorbet

This was so easy and so delicious.

I found this recipe on Pinterest, but originally it was posted on this Blog.

Detoxinista has lot’s of great recipes that I haven’t tried yet, but this one I tried and it was GOOD. I just love that it is only three ingredients. Depending on how well you know me, you know I have a sensitive digestive system. And as I get older, I am taking this a little more seriously (not too seriously since I had pizza last night since wheat and dairy are two of my arch nemeses.) But, I am a work in progress!

And this dessert/snack/delight is a step in the right direction! I guess it isn’t technically a sorbet, but that is what it tastes like to me…The detoxinista calls it Pineapple Whip.

You should also know that I have included the original recipe, but with my notes. I rarely have the exact ingredients for things, so I improvised, but it was still really, really tasty.

Ingredients

1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, chopped and frozen (I opted for the frozen pineapple chunks from Trader Joe’s).

1 cup almond milk (The Detoxinista makes her own, and the recipe is on her website. I haven’t tried that yet, but it sounds awesome!)

1 TBSP honey (I used agave syrup instead and it was yummy. I haven’t tried it yet with honey.)

Instructions

1. The frozen pineapple chunks should reach up to the 6.5-7 cup mark on your standard blender (I didn’t have enough pineapple, so I added a can of peaches, which was delicious, but wasn’t all natural…so I cheated…I did drain all the sugary juice though!)

2. The detoxinista recommends using a Vitamix blender, which I guess is a special high-speed blender? I used my Kitchenaid blender and it worked great.

(You will notice above that my kitchenaid is pink…when you go to Bed, Bath & Beyond and they have 20 different beautiful colors, but $20 of the pink one they donate towards finding a cure for breast cancer…well, it is hard not to choose the pink one. Now I have a pink blender.)

3. Just put the three ingredients in your blender and blend until you achieve a creamy, sorbet consistency!

NOTES: I have done this twice, the first time was a peach/pineapple sorbet. The second was a mango/pear (frozen mango chunks and a fresh pear cut up into bite sized pieces). Both were really good and so refreshing with summer right around the corner. I am excited to try some new flavors! I kinda want to add some coconut to one…
