Vanilla Coconut Pine Lime Sorbet

Vanilla Coconut Pine Lime Sorbet - Quirky Cooking 

Well the weather’s finally starting to warm up. I’m so ready for spring, summer and SORBET! This is just a quick post to try out my new laptop (yay!) and share my new favourite flavour of sorbet. It’s so refreshing, a perfect intro to the warmer weather.

These flavours were inspired by what’s been in my veggie box lately. Creamy and tropical, this is a great one for those of us who need a dairy free replacement for ice cream… you’d swear it has cream in it! I’m so addicted to coconut cream ice-creams. I hope you like it too. 

Note: You will need to freeze the pineapple pieces and the coconut cream ahead of time!

You can find fine sea salt and vanilla powder for this recipe in my online store!

    Hey — another great recipe using coconut butter! (btw: thanks for linking to my blog 🙂 I love limes so will have to try this. Since getting Thermomix I find that I am ALWAYS zesting every citrus fruit I use. Even if the recipe calls for “juice of one lemon” for example, I’ll zest it first and toss the zest into a “zest baggie” that I keep in the freezer. The frozen zest comes in so handy for adding extra zing to sorbets and other recipes too.

    I’ll be shopping for limes later today — thanks Jo 🙂

    Hi Jo, Sorry for asking the obvious, but was wondering if this would work with your coconut butter frozen or should I just use coconut cream from a tin. I wondered if the coconut butter would add a more creamy texture like an icecream if I left out the ice and everything else was frozen.
    thanks, Sharon

    Hi Sharon, actually, I haven’t tried coconut butter – I think it would be a bit hard to chop up. I would stick with the coconut cream – it really is creamy as it is but feel free to use all coconut cream and no ice if you like!
    Jo 🙂

    It IS some machine!!! 😀 We call it the ‘Dream Machine’! lol

    If you want to see a demo let me know. There’s no obligation to buy – it’s not like a Tupperware party – just a cooking demonstration where the consultant makes 6 dishes: sorbet, bread, dip, salad, risotto or pasta and custard. Yum! 🙂

I love all your recipes and looking through everything has given me a great deal of confidence to cook as a new wife with a new gluten problem who is far away from home! Thank you!

    Hi Jo, just wondering if it still works with no egg white? I have a friend who’s allergic to eggs, but just found out her daughter is allergic to dairy. (sending her over to your blog!! :-). )
    thanks, Clare

  8. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Clare, yes, this works fine without the egg white, as the coconut cream helps it to not be so icy. Thanks for sending your friend over!! 🙂 Jo

    Hi Jo, would this work with frozen coconut flesh? What would you suggest as I have 3 coconuts in the freezer!

    Made this tonight to soothe my sore throat. Worked a treat. Will make again.
    Had trouble getting mine to mix. Used turbo a few times and then speed 10. Eventually made yummy sorbet.
