Beat the heat with this light and refreshing Thermomix Pineapple Sorbet made with frozen pineapple, lime juice and maple syrup.
This tropical three-ingredient Thermomix Pineapple Sorbet takes only a few minutes to make. It is the perfect dessert to cool down with when the weather's hot. There's no added sugar, and it's free from all the funny additives and preservatives found in supermarket sorbets.
Pineapples are high in fructose but boast many health benefits such as vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre. Fresh pineapple contains an enzyme that breaks down the protein in your mouth, therefore causing irritation to the tongue. Tinned pineapple gets heated before it goes into the tin, killing the enzymes. It's often full of preservatives and added sugar.
As with all Thermomix sorbets, this one is straightforward to make and doesn't require any planning if you have a freezer stocked with frozen pineapple.
Tips for Making Thermomix Pineapple Sorbet
When making sorbet, the number one tip is to let the frozen fruit thaw a little first before inserting the butterfly whisk. I usually leave mine for 5 minutes - this prevents the butterfly whisk from getting stuck.
Also, ensure that the butterfly whisk is attached correctly. Otherwise, it will fly off when mixing and possibly get damaged.
How to Store
Pineapple Sorbet is best enjoyed immediately after it's made while it's still soft and creamy. Nevertheless, if there is any leftover, it can be stored in the freezer for later. To thaw out, let it stand for a few minutes, then pop it back in the Thermomix to soften it up. I find that mixing it on speed 4 does the trick.
