This was also the first use of my ice cream freezer. I used Splenda? in place of the sugar, fresh pineapple, lime and a light coconut milk. Mother in law is a diabetic and I was trying to make something she could enjoy with the rest of us on the 4th of July. Sorry for all the changes but are they changes or substitutions. Fresh for caned and lite for regular. No mater how you look at it this was wonderfull and tasted just like a Pina Colada and even my {MIL}could "escape" with out worrie. Read More

Creamier than other sorbets because of the coconut milk, this is light, refreshing, and a nice balance of coconut, lime and pineapple flavors. Perfect just as written! Read More

The tropical taste of coconut and pineapple is alluring on a hot summer day but sugary sweet not so much. Simply reduced the white sugar to 1 cup when making the syrup as the pineapple is packed with sweetness. Used a fresh juicy whole pineapple instead of canned. Two-thirds of pineapple processed in a Vitamix blender to get a smooth and frothy mixture and remaining portion pulsed several times so that there would be some small pieces of pineapple. This turned out great and was plenty sweet for our tastes. Thank you CALLALILLIE for sharing this refreshing summer treat. Read More

This was very refreshing. Will definitely make again. Kids liked it too. I skipped one step. I didn't heat water and sugar. I threw everything in blender and then right into ice cream maker. Good sorbet consistency. Read More

This was so easy! And relatively cheap compared to other deserts I make. I accidentally used twice as much lime juice. Next time I will still use 1/2 c lime juice but reduce the sugar by about 1/4 - 1/2 c. Everyone loved it but some commented that they had sugar overloads. Read More

LOVE THIS recipe!! So refreshing for summer. I don't have an ice cream maker so the pineapple did settle a little to the bottom. I froze them in individual ramekins. Easy for serving. Would DEFINITELY MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN. Read More
