It is spring here in the Bay Area, the mountains around our home look so green and pretty! The flowers are blooming , and its bright and sunny everywhere! The days are getting longer, yayay! It has been hot since the past few days, and we actually turned on the air conditioner for the first time this year!
Hot weather calls for ice cream, sorbets and popsicles! I bought an ice cream maker recently, to add to my vast collection of kitchen gadgets. I was so hesitant to buy it since last year, simply cause I will be adding another appliance to the kitchen/clutter! But we as a family simply love ice creams, and after some encouragement from my Instagram friends, I finally decided to take the plunge and invest in the ice cream maker! It was the best decision ever ! I have made ice cream/sorbet 4 times already in a month and my head is reeling with so many ideas for different flavors, that I cannot contain myself!
I decided to make pineapple coconut lime sorbet this time, to delve into sorbets. I used a whole pineapple, coconut milk from a can, 3 whole limes including the lime zest, mint from my garden that I used to make the mint infused simple syrup and that’s it! Short list of ingredients and super simple to make.
You simply put all the ingredients in a high speed blender, I used Vitamix, and then strain it through a sieve to make the mixture smooth. You let it chill in the fridge for minimum 3 hours, and then put it through the ice cream maker per the manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze the mixture and it is ready to eat in about an hour!
The sorbet is creamy, refreshing, so tropical that it transports you to an island! It is certainly a must try!
