 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Pineapple puree; from half a
  • -fresh pineapple
  • 1 c Fresh orange juice
  • 1 ts Coconut extract
  • 1/4 c Part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 c Flaked coconut; unsweetened


Makes 1 quart, serving 8, at 65 cals. Time varies from 1 to 5 hours,
depending upon freezing method.

If using fresh pineapple: cut the rind, eyes, and core from the pineapple.
Cut the flesh into chunks and puree them in a food processor fitted with
the steel blade. You should have about 2 cups of puree. (Unsweetened
pineapple chunks, pureed.)

Add the orange juice, coconut extract, and ricotta and process briefly.

Chill the mixture and freeze in an electric or hand-cranked ice-cream
machine, following the manufacturer's instructions.

To make the sorbet in your freezer, transfer the mixture to a bowl and
place in the freezer. When the liquid has frozen solid, about 2 to 3 hours,
remove it from the freezer and, with a fork, break it into large chunks.
Place the chunks in a food processor and process with the metal blade until
smooth and creamy. Return to the bowl and freeze for at least 30 minutes

Toast the coconut: Set oven at 350F. Spread coconut on a baking sheet and
toast in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until lightly colored, stirring
or shaking 2 or 3 times.

To serve, place scoops of sorbet in dessert dishes and sprinkle with the
toasted coconut. PER SERVING: 46.0 cals, 1.5 g fat (28.3% cff)
