Your favorite summer drink in a refreshing scoop-able frozen treat!

Pina Colada Sherbet

Summer is here! At least it is according to the weather. It’s been hot the last few days and I could not have timed trying this piña colada sherbet recipe better. Nothing says summer more than the combo of pineapple, coconut, and rum. And nothing beats the summer heat more than a frozen treat. It’s a winning combination for sure.

Pina Colada Sherbet

One bite of this sherbet will transport you to the beach or to the deck of a cruise ship. On a particularly hot Sunday afternoon my husband I sat in the shade on our front porch, each with a big bowlful of sherbet, and I could close my eyes and almost smell the ocean and feel the sand in between my toes.

Pina Colada Sherbet

This time of year I see recipes for ice cream, sorbets and frozen yogurt, but not really any for sherbet. Why is that? This stuff was delicious, and didn’t last long in our house. It’s a simple frozen blend of pureed pineapple, coconut milk, sugar, rum, and a little lime juice. If you have an ice cream machine (and if you don’t, I suggest you go out and get one), this recipe is a must-try for this summer.
