Pina Colada Limonada Sherbet

I was craving some pineapple sherbet last week, so I hit up my favorite recipe site. I liked this fruit sherbet recipe, and decided to have fun with it, since I didn't have any OJ around. The result was tart and tasty!

This is actually TheBittenWord.com's
Elderflower sherbet, but you get the picture.

Piña Colada Limonada Sherbet
  • 1 c lemon juice
  • 7 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 9 oz coconut milk
  • splash milk
  • 1/2 c crushed pineapple
Mix the sugar, juices and milk. Pour into a small ice cream maker and get it going. Wait to add the crushed pineapple until the sherbet has enough "body" to keep pieces from sinking straight to the bottom.

In 20-30 minutes, you have a soft sherbet that's ready to eat! You can also ripen the sherbet in the freezer.

The lemon taste was pretty strong for me, so when I make this the next time, I'm going to try these proportions:
  • 1/2 c lemon juice (maybe lime?)
  • 1 c pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 c coconut milk
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1/2 c crushed pineapple
What's your favorite taste of summer?
