Thank you to Dixie Crystals for sponsoring this Pina Colada Sorbet post.
I’m having all the pineapple feels right now. Have you seen the PINEAPPLE GRANITAS we shared a little while back yet? They’re pretty awesome. Like 3 ingredient awesome. That’s right THREE ingredients. They’re light, refreshing and perfect all summer long. What’s even better than that you ask? Turning them into Pina Colada Sorbet with just a few additional ingredients, including rum, because you can’t have a pina colada without rum can ya.
Y’all thought I was going to say bourbon didn’t you? It’s understandable, but you know you need rum for Pina Coladas. Paper umbrellas are optional. Also optional is singing “If you like Pina Coladas”. It was stuck in my head so it’s only fair it’s stuck in your head now as well. I’m a giver, what can I say. I don’t however like getting caught in the rain, especially if I’m on my motorcycle. That hurts y’all.
ARE FRESH PINEAPPLES THE BEST TO USE?
Fresh pineapple makes all the difference. Pineapples just look like they’d be temperamental, don’t let them scare you off. Once you get past the hard and somewhat prickly exterior it’s smooth sailing. Just (carefully) chop off the top with a serrated knife.
TIP: you can save the pineapple top and plant if, if you’re feeling adventurous.
To get the fruit out, you can use a handy dandy pineapple corer if you have one OR, if not, you can continue on with your knife and get the job done just as well. You’ll have the added benefit of a little arm workout. I could and should do that because I have sad spaghetti arms. Sigh.
Ready to mix up your own? Grab a fresh pineapple and turn one of your favorite summer sippers into the sorbet you’ll be enjoying all summer!
