Pineapple Almond Sorbet

I would have added coconut milk but the kids insisted they didn't like coconut (which wasn't true as I blended the remaining liquid with coconut milk and they gobbled it up). Oh well, next time. The nuts add a great texture.
  • 2.5 c pineapple (1 small pineapple), refrigerated
  • lemon
  • 1 T-1/4 c sugar (depending how sweet fruit is)
  • chopped almonds
  1. Blend pineapple with 1/2 lemon's juice. Optional: add in grated lemon zest.
  2. Add sugar and blend until dissolved (1-2 minutes).
  3. Add almonds and chop for a few moments.
  4. Pour into ice cream maker.
Add coconut milk.
Use macadamia nuts instead of almonds.

5/31/15: made with fresh pineapple that wasn't that ripe, so used 1/4 c sugar. also a large handful of chopped almonds. XP stirred it.
