Piña Colada Sorbet

Summer doesn’t end until September 22 this year, and even though we’ve had a few days of cooler weather here in the D.C. area, I want to savor every last bit of summer. We had a lot of pineapple on hand a few weeks ago, so I decided to freeze some of it to make Piña Coladas.

As it turned out, I haven’t been in the mood for drinking, even when we were visiting the beach with Brent’s family two weekends ago. So, instead of making an adult beverage with the frozen pineapple, I decided to make a family-friendly dessert in honor of the drink for which that iconic 1979 song, “Escape (The Piña Colada Song),” was named. Cheers!

Ingredients
3 C frozen pineapple
1 C coconut cream
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp of spice mixture

spice mixture
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/16 tsp ground clove
1/16 tsp ground nutmeg
1/16 tsp black pepper

Method

Create the spice mixture by blending all the spices in a small bowl. Reserve the remaining mixture for future batches. (Or, quadruple the rest of the ingredients and use all of the spice mixture at once.)

Add the pineapple, coconut cream, vanilla extract, and spice mixture to a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix. Combine on a medium speed until smooth.

Enjoy right away! Or, store in the freezer container; then allow it to warm on the counter and mix well with a spoon before eating.
