Pineapple Sorbet | Less than 1% Fat

Healthy Pineapple Agave Sorbet - Super Low Fat

I L-O-V-E… love… love… love desserts!  No question about it… but… I especially L-O-V-E healthy low-fat or fat-free desserts that don’t send my blood sugar spiking.

One key to losing weight effortlessly (or reasonably so), is to keep a stable blood sugar level, and one of the ways I do that is by avoiding processed sugars as much as possible.  I admit it, I’m not perfect, but I do try.

This sorbet is so scrumptious, I sometimes find myself eating a dish of it for breakfast, and why not… it’s totally healthy and it rocks!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about one lime)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Nectar (Or to taste. If the pineapple is really ripe, you’ll need less coconut nectar)

PREPARATION:

  1. Combine the cubed pineapple, pineapple juice, lime juice and water in a food processor or blender.  Process until smooth.  The Vita-mix blender is spectacular for this!  With Vita-mix, smooth really means smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a metal bowl and stir in the coconut nectar
  3. Refrigerate until completely cold
  4. Now you have two options for making the sorbet:
    1. I process mine in my ice cream maker. Patience isn’t my best virtue, nor is planning ahead 5 hours.
    2. If you don’t have an ice cream maker and you do have five hours; pour ingredients into a metal bowl and seal the bowl tightly with plastic wrap or a lid and place in the freezer for at least 5 hours until firm.  It should be crispy on the outside, but still slushy on the inside.

This is truly yummy and I know you’ll enjoy it.  Enjoy!

Note: I was told that you can make this just as well with 2 cups of canned pineapple chunks (in their own juice, no added sugar).  I haven’t tried that yet because I always seem to get in the mood for this when the pineapples are fresh and ripe at the market.  It’s so simple and delicious to use fresh pineapple, so I haven’t tried any other way.  I’m of the belief that fresh is always best when available, but use canned if you prefer.

Alternative Flavors:  Want Pina Colada?  Simply add 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract (or to taste).  Have fun with this basic recipe. It’s delicious and extra creamy when you add a ripe banana to it.  Also yummo with a 1 cup of fresh strawberries.  This is simply a delicious base and you can let your adventurous spirit fly with this one.

If you come up with something really yummo, be sure to let us know! I L-O-V-E comments!

NOTE: To learn more about Coconut Secret products and why I love them. They’re simply spectacular and such a great healthy alternative!
