Pineapple Raspberry Sorbet


Yum! So how about some sorbet after some spring cleaning?  I am trying to accomplish spring cleaning/reorganizing with three adorable children, let’s just say I am giving myself an entire month to accomplish my goals.  This little dessert is a fun and tasty treat that is super simple to make, come on it’s only three ingredients!  The line-up includes: buttermilk, frozen raspberries (yes, that is what the red things are, I left the bag out, ha!) and crushed pineapple. 


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend together. Raspberries, buttermilk and pineapple.  Why in the heck do I want to say repeat and then start that sentence over with, “Lather, rinse, repeat . . .as needed!”  Anyone know where that random quote/song lyric came from?   Ah yes, it’s Phoebe from Friends! Love her quirky songs, bahhhahhaa! Sorry I had to share that spontaneous random and tangent thought of mine Winking smile.


Even the mixture just pureed is pretty darn good, too! If it is too tart for you just add a couple tablespoons of sugar or a packet of stevia.


The buttermilk gives it a great mouth-feel, more like ice cream but a lot less fat!


Place mixture into containers and freeze for at least two hours.


Dish up and serve!
