Pineapple Coconut Sorbet


Pineapple Coconut Ice CreamThis is an amazing recipe.  It’s easy and very very tasty in summer.  You will impress anybody with it.  There is no dairy in it and can be served after a big meal.  It’s much better if you have an ice cream maker and if you use fresh pineapple, but in a pinch, canned pineapple and freezing the mix in a pyrex will do.


  • 1/2 fresh pineapple or one can of pineapple chunks
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (*optional)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • sprigs of fresh mint for garnish


Make a simple syrup by boiling one cup of water, then adding a cup of sugar and stirring until it dissolves.  Let it cool to room temperature.

Puree in a blender the pineapple and the coconut milk.  Mix in the syrup and place the mix in an ice cream maker.  I have a Cuisinart that works wonderfully.  If you don’t have one, you can put the mix in the freezer and serve before it’s completely frozen.

Serve in pretty glasses with a sprig of mint. Enjoy!

Your Comment:

Here are the recipes finally. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and never got around to it. Some of you know that I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. There is a certain alchemy that has to happen in order to have the ingredients turn into delicious creations. There is no real secret behind it, just lots of fresh ingredients, time and patience to try things out and some creativity.

Not everything I make turns out perfect on the first try. Most of the time, even when I follow recipes carefully, there are some adjustments that have to be made in order to make it exactly the way I like it. In some cases recipes have failed miserably and a last-minute plan B has been tackled, and in other cases I had to toss the first batch of something and repeat the steps until it works out.

I hope these recipes bring a lot of magic to your meals, just as they have brought magic to mine. They have all been thoroughly tested and I will never post something I have not made myself. Some adjustments may have to be made for dietary preferences or limitations. Feel free to email me or drop me a note if you have any questions.
