Piña Colada Ice Cream or Sorbet


2 cups fresh pineapple (plus extra chunks of fresh pineapple)

1  cup canned coconut milk or flesh from a young Thai coconut

1/8 cup fresh lime juice

1/4-1/2 cup coconut sugar or 1-2 really ripe bananas


In a blender blend the fresh pineapple, lime, coconut, and banana or sugar to a smooth and creamy consistency. Pour the contents of the blender into an ice cream maker and switch it on until it is ready, it takes around 25 minutes. At around 20 minutes, just before the ice cream is ready add chunks of fresh pineapple. If a firmer consistency is desired put into the freezer for about 30 minutes. Serve with sprinkles of desiccated coconut, fresh pineapple chunks or a slice of lime as pictured here.

Note: This recipe can serve as a raw or cooked recipe and it is relatively low fat. It can also be made without the use of an ice cream maker. Simply blend all the ingredients and place the mixture into the freezer until it hardens.
