Pina Colada Sorbet

YUM!!!  Outstanding flavor, and good for you!  Perfect sweet treat for the summer. 

3 Cups cubed fresh pineapple
1 Cup coconut water
1/2 Cup sugar (I used SPLENDA!)
1 Cup light coconut milk
2/3 Cup cream of coconut

1.  Place first three ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and sugar dissolves.  Combine pureed mixture and remaining ingredients in a bowl; whisk.  Cover and refridgerate until thoroghly chilled.
2.  Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.  Spoon sorbet into a freezer-safe container.  Cover and freeze for 2 hours or until firm.

Note:  I do not know what this recipe was talking about on step # 2!  I just poured it into a tupperware and stuck in the freezer.  Obviously, my sorbet didn't turn out like typical sorbet (soft), BUT, it still tastes the same.  You just have to let it thaw a bit before spooning into a bowl! Haha!

***Additional Note!***  My friend and colleague, Anne Schneider, made a fantastic point.  She said if you don't have an ice cream maker, to use popsicle molds and make Pina Colada Popsicles!!  Kids will love it too!  Great idea, Anne!!
