Speedy Pineapple-Lime Sorbet


Makes 8 servings


1 ripe pineapple, cut into cubes (about 4 cups)
1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel


  1. Arrange pineapple in single layer on large baking sheet; freeze at least 1 hour or until very firm.*
  2. Combine frozen pineapple, limeade, lime juice and lime peel in food processor; cover and process until smooth and fluffy. If mixture doesn't become smooth and fluffy, let stand 30 minutes to soften slightly; repeat processing. Serve immediately.


This dessert is best if served immediately, but it can be made ahead, stored in the freezer and then softened several minutes before being served.
