Sherbet is frozen juice and is extremely refreshing and thirst quenching. If your children often ask for ice-cream, snow ice, 7-eleven’s Slurpee, or frozen drinks, then consider making this pineapple sherbet at home. This homemade ice-cream is super easy; all you need is the pineapple and sugar. High in fruit content, naturally coloured, it is healthier than any commercial ice-cream since you can control the sugar level and avoid adding the harmful colourings added into the dessert. Not only it is yummy, it is probably cheaper too !

For smoother sherbet texture, it must be frozen quickly at a very low temperature. Here is the recipe :


Easier method but wasteful

More difficult version but you get more pineapple

Pineapple Sherbet Recipe

Ingredients

About 900g (2 Ib) pineapple (1)

½ cup sugar (2)

Notes on selecting the ingredients :

(1) If you choose naturally sweet pineapple, you can reduce the amount of sugar or avoid adding the sugar totally.

(2) For healthier choice, use molasses or second best option: brown sugar, or no sugar at all)

Methods

1) An hour before you place the sherbet mixture into the refrigerator, reduce the freezing compartment of your refrigerator to the lowest temperature.

2) Remove the edible part of the pineapple from its skin.

3) Cut the pineapple into small pieces.

4) Add sugar if necessary and blend until smooth. (Avoid adding water, diluted pineapple sherbet is less tasty)

5) Pour the mixture into a big stainless steel dish with flat bottom. The height of the pineapple mixture should be about 3cm (or 2 inches), enough depth for you to do the scooping later. Pour into a second container if it is necessary.

6) Place it in the non-freezer refrigerator compartment to cool for several minutes.

7) Transfer the pineapple mixture to the freezer to freeze for 2 to 4 hours.

8) If you don’t mind doing additional work to make the sherbet smoother, take the frozen sherbet out every few hours (when it is about to frozen), stir it or blend it and put it back into the freezer compartment to repeat the freezing process.
