Ingredient Notes:

Photos of the pineapple sorbet ingredients.
  • Pineapple – Use a ripe pineapple or frozen fresh pineapple. See the FAQ below to see how to know if a pineapple in the store is ripe.
  • Lime Juice – This adds a nice flavor when combined with the pineapple.
  • Water – You do not need much, but this helps with the smoothness.

This sorbet is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and paleo. Although it is completely optional, I used a tablespoon of honey to sweeten mine because the pineapple I used wasn’t as ripe as I wanted.


  • You can substitute lemon or fresh orange juice if you don’t have a lime.
  • If you want to sweeten this recipe, you can use honey or agave nectar.

How To Make Fresh Pineapple Sorbet:

Cut pineapple chunks on a wooden cutting board.

Step 1: Place the pineapple on a cutting board. Carefully remove the rind with a sharp knife. If you prefer, you can also use this inexpensive pineapple corer. If you don’t have a pineapple core remover, be sure to cut around the core so you don’t get the tough core pieces in the sorbet.

Step 2: Add the cut pineapple into a Vitamix, Blendtec, or another high-speed blender. These are great at whipping the ingredients super fine.

Step 3: Add the lime juice and water to the blender. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth in texture and frothy.

Step 4: Pour the thick mixture into a bread loaf tin or this awesome freezer-safe ice cream container (pictured above), and freeze for 3-4 hours.

Step 5: When the mixture is frozen, use a large ice cream scoop to serve the pineapple sorbet. That is it, super easy!

How To Store Pineapple Sorbet:

Pineapple sorbet can keep fresh in your freezer for up to 3 months. It is important to store the sorbet in an air-tight container to avoid it getting freezer-burned.

Recipe FAQ:

Can you use other fruits to make this sorbet?

Yes!! You can use any fruit you like. Some of my favorite fruit sorbets include strawberry, mango, and watermelon with fresh mint.

Can you use frozen fruit to make sorbet?

You can use frozen fruit or fresh fruit to make sorbet, but if you add frozen fruit to your Vitamix or blender, you must add a little water to blend smoothly.

What is the difference between sorbet and ice cream?

Ice cream is made with milk or a non-dairy milk substitute, whereas sorbet is primarily made from fresh fruit.

Can you use canned pineapple to make this frozen pineapple recipe?

Yes, you can use canned pineapple. I recommend using one packed in juice and not sweetened with syrup. If you use the canned juice, do not add water.

Where can I find gluten free ice cream cones?

I found these gluten free cones by a company called Let’s Do Gluten Free. They come in a bright green box. They also make gluten free sugar cones. These are available online, but I am finding that more grocery stores are starting to carry gluten free cones.

You can also make your waffle cones with this handy, super DIY, easy method that my son created. These waffle cones are crispy and delicious…not to mention kids like it when they can make them!
