Kiwi Pineapple Sorbet

Kiwi Pineapple Sorbet

I love summer. The fruit is just so gorgeous, delicious and heck, dirt cheap. Last weekend, I raided the produce stand for fruits. I had some leftover after snacking on a good bit, and thought about a sorbet. I had mango, pineapple and kiwi left, but I was pretty sure the color of that would be unattractive.

So, I asked my friends on Twitter what they thought. Mango/Pineapple or Kiwi/Pineapple? Mango/Pineapple won BIG time. However, upon coming home, I cut into the mango and it wasn’t ripe at all. :( So, I ended up making Kiwi/Pineapple instead. I’m not sad about it, because I think this sorbet is really cute with the little kiwi seeds in it.

This is the first sorbet that I’ve had that is creamy in texture, and really soft to scoop straight out of the freezer. It’s also a delicious flavor combination, so don’t let the neon green highlighter appearance deter you away.

  1. Mango pineapple does sound delicious, but the kiwi pineapple sounds better to me! It is reaching close to 90 degrees here today, and this would be super rfreshing!

  2. This sounds pretty good! We just used our ice cream maker for the first time this week, and it made some delicious vanilla, so I can’t wait to experiment & see how tasty all the other options could be!

  3. I never would have thought to do kiwi & pineapple but it sounds delicious! I love sorbet during the summer!!

  4. Yumm. It looks so freakin good.

  5. Oh this looks good, and SO refreshing right now! I wish I could reach into the screen and grab myself a bowl!
