Pineapple Sorbet

I hope you're not tired of new ice cream ideas yet, cause I'm not tired of making them! I've had this recipe in my collection for nearly a decade, and I'm so glad I finally got around to trying it.

Sometimes I think of sorbet as kind of an "icy" version of ice cream, but this recipe turns out so creamy and delicious (and doesn't freeze too hard, bonus!) that you won't know it's sorbet! And with only three ingredients, it couldn't be simpler!

Start by cutting up your pineapple. Here's a tutorial. You'll need a small pineapple, which should yield about 3 cups of pineapple chunks. Put those in a food processor and add the lemon juice

and the sugar. (I assure you, I have had a manicure since these photos.)

Process the mixture until smooth - just a few seconds! - and then pour into your ice cream freezer.

When it's finished, trasfer to a freezer safe bowl and freeze overnight. And then be amazed at how delicious three ingredients can be!
