Pineapple sorbet/ Ananas Sorbet

Let me wish you all a very happy & wonderful women’s day 2019. Hope you all are having fun on this day either at work place or at home!
To celebrate this special day, I am sharing a summer friendly recipe of Pineapple Sorbet. Sorbet is a dessert generally made by freezing citrus fruit juice infused in sugar syrup. But this can be made with fruits like melons, pineapple & even apple. Good thing is, if fruit is sweet, then you can reduce the sugar to be added. I learnt it from a relative, friend and well-wisher Sahana. Thank you Sahanakka for this idea which was new to me!
I made pineapple sorbet sometimes back and it was liked by everyone at home. Believe me; I added just 4 tbsp of sugar for 2 cups of pineapple as it was really sweet and juicy! Making sorbet is really simple with minimum number of ingredients, I say just 2. That is sugar & seasonal fruit. You can play around flavors by adding choice of herbs too. Here is a recipe that doesn’t need an ice cream maker too. So enjoy this summer with sorbet!

  • You can replace pineapple by melons like water melon or musk melon. Berries (strawberry) or citrus fruit like orange can be used as well.
  • Adjust the sugar level depending on the sweetness of the fruit.
