Healthy Dessert Recipe: Lemon-Pineapple Sorbet

    Lemon-Pineapple Sorbet

    In our updated take on the classic lemon ice, we’ve added pineapple for its decidedly tropical flavor (and, of course, its high content of vitamins B and C). This sweet treat will indulge your sweet tooth without inducing any guilt.


    • 3 cups lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 1 pineapple, chopped into cubes
    • 1/2 cup sugar

    Dissolve sugar in mix of lemon juice and orange before combining with pineapple chunks. Process the fruit and juice mixture in a food processor or blender. When mixture has reached a smooth consistency, spread in a metal pan and freeze for at least six hours. Once fully frozen, break into chunks and process in small batches until the blend has the smooth, somewhat icy texture of a sherbet. Serve immediately, or store in an air-tight container and freeze for an additional hour and a half (if you are seeking the firmer consistency of ice-cream).

    Note: If you have access to an ice-cream maker, you can freeze the lemon-pineapple mixture according to the manufacturer’s directions.

    Serves four.
