Sweet Treat

What a tasty treat to have after dinner!

Pineapple, Coconut and Mint Sorbet

Here's the what I did to make the sorbet:

Whirled two cups of fresh pineapple (that had been in the freezer for an hour) in the food processor until smooth. Add 1 cup of pineapple juice and 1 cup of coconut milk. Toss in a small handful of chopped mint and the juice of two limes, stir together. Add a wee pinch of salt. Pour into your ice cream/sorbet maker and follow the machine's instructions to finish the sorbet.

Some things I'll do differently next time. 1) Make a simple syrup and infuse that with the mint and lime zest, saving the leaves for garnish, instead of picking them out of my teeth. 2) Maybe add a little more coconut milk, to deepen the coconut flavor. 3) Serve with a shot of my favorite rum and throw a straw in it. This was tasty!

The bits of mint were a bit chewy, but the flavor was wonderful and cool. Excellent for a summer-like day.

Ooooh! The most recent issue of Cooking Light has a recipe for harvest riesling sorbet! I should cut it out for you. J-Lo and I would both DIE! :-)
