Piña Colada Sorbet5 Comments

If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain…sorry I couldn’t resist and I apologize for getting that stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Of course I love them and will jump on the opportunity to sip one of these delightful drinks. Preferably on a hot beach with one hand wrapped around the drink and a book in the other hand. Since I will not be heading back to the Caribbean any time soon, I knew I had to make this immediately when I saw it in one of my magazines. I have used my ice cream maker many times, but never to make anything other than ice cream. I took advantage of having a pineapple sitting in my kitchen waiting to be used up. I also had some coconut water left over from the coconut-pineapple smoothie I made a few months back. So I think it was fate.

This comes together with incredible ease and the flavor of the sorbet is so refreshing. The past few evenings have been a tad warm here in NJ and it has been nice to slip out to our patio with a bowl of this to cool off. Another option, if you want to spice things up, is to drizzle some rum over top of the sorbet to make an adult treat. Yum! I can see us doing that for future BBQ’s with friends, I think it would be a great way to end a hot, summer evening!
