Why This Pineapple Sorbet is Great:
- This vegan pineapple sorbet recipe has only 3 ingredients! It is so easy!
- It is a delicious healthy treat that your whole family will love.
- You do not need a fancy ice cream maker.
- All you need is a blender.
- This pineapple sorbet tastes a lot like Dole Pineapple Whip if you blend it longer!
- Pineapple - Use ripe pineapple. See the FAQ below to see how to know if a pineapple in the store is ripe.
- Lime Juice - This adds
- Water - You do not need much, but this helps with the smoothness.
This sorbet is vegan, dairy-free, gluten free...and is also paleo. This is completely optional, but I used a tablespoon of honey to sweeten mine because the pineapple wasn't as ripe as I wanted.
Recipe Step By Step Directions:
Step 1: Place the pineapple on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to carefully remove the rind from the pineapple. You can also use this inexpensive pineapple corer if you prefer.
Step 2: Place the cut pineapple into a Vitamix, Blendtec, or another high-speed blender.
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 another freezer-safe container, 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!
Tips and Recipe FAQ:
Yes!! You can use any fruit you like. Some of my favorite fruit sorbets include strawberry, mango, and watermelon with fresh mint.
You can use frozen fruit to make sorbet, but if you are adding frozen fruit to your Vitamix or blender, you will need to add a little water so that it will blend smoothly.
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.
Where Do You Get 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 more and more grocery stores are starting to carry gluten free cones.
You can also make your own 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!
This post was updated from an old April 2018 post with a lot more information so you can easily make this recipe at home!

How many calories per cup?
Hi Cate, the recipe program calculates per serving, not by a cup measurement. One pineapple made 6 servings of sorbet.
Lovely! Excepts chocolate creams, the fruit sorbet are the best!! This recipe reminds me when I was young, my mom often made the mango, tropical fruit or lemon for the taste. 🙂
LOL I hear you on the chocolate 🙂
