2 Ingredient Pineapple Sorbet (5 Min, Vegan)

2 Ingredient Pineapple Sorbet. Cool. #dessert #sorbet | hurrythefoodup.com

As Howie pointed out in his Banana Oat Fitness Cookies, baking isn’t his thing. And desserts aren’t really mine. We’re manly men (cue Robin Hood singing) after all 😉

That being said, there’s a time and a place for everything. Recently the sun was shining (don’t worry, it’s gone again now; this is northern Germany) but it gave me that ‘summer’ feeling all the same.

I fancied an ice cream but didn’t have any – so I did the next best thing – I made my very own Pineapple and Mint Sorbet. From only two ingredients! Pineapple and mint leaves. That’s it. Couldn’t be much simpler.

All you need to do is throw the pineapple into the freezer for a couple of hours first, take it out, add the mint leaves and mash it up! The blender even does the hard work for you. It’s sweet, tropical, summery and very refreshing. And as desserts go – how bad can pineapple and mint really be?

Health Benefits – 2 Ingredient Pineapple Sorbet

Those cool sounding, but nasty little bastards – free radicals – are always out to harm your body. Vitamin C is their natural enemy and 100% of your RDA is found in this dessert. Vitamin C also helps with healthy bones, teeth, gums and blood vessels (Harvard).

The pineapple also contains manganese, which is used with many enzymes in energy production and antioxidant defences (WHFoods).

Take a breath: pineapple is also high in…Vitamin A, B6, magnesium, potassium, iron, dietary fibre, calcium and low in saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol. What a fruit!

Ingredients

  • 1 can pineapple chunks (1 can = 550g/20oz in juice, or ½ real pineapple)
  • 1 cup mint leaves

Instructions

  1. Drain the tin or chop up the real pineapple and put in bowl in freezer (it should take around 2 hours to freeze). Save a few chunks or a ring for garnish.
  2. When it’s frozen use a hand blender or food processor to blend, along with mint (also keep a few mint leaves aside).
  3. If you're using fresh pineapple then I suggest blending first and freezing after, it seems to work better.
  4. When nicely mixed, place in bowls and garnish each with the remaining chunks and leaves.

  5. Serve immediately or put back in freezer until needed.

Recipe Notes

Please note: You need to throw the chopped pineapple in the freezer for about 2 hours before you can make your sorbet!

  1. This sounds delicious and so simple. I’ll keep an eye out for pineapples on offer and give this a try when I see them.

    You really should give baking more of a chance, it’s so much fun, although maybe not all that healthy!

    • Yep, it’s really easy. Actually, to be honest more and more baking is happening in our pad – but Kat (my better half) is much more gifted so I tend to let her crack on with it. Maybe I’ll join in more often…if it goes wrong I’ll blame you!

  2. I just had this for dessert – so much more refreshing than icecream! And I don’t feel half as guilty 😉 😉

  3. Haha – so let me get this straight – manly men don’t bake? 🙂
    This sounds so refreshing – could be a palate cleanser and a dessert all in one!

  4. Wow! What a brilliant idea! This sounds SO refreshing and perfect for the warm weather headed our way! …and probably would be pretty awesome with a little shot of vodka to the mix!

  5. This looks so pretty and delicious Howie! Love the color! I literally just watched on the Food Network today where one of the chefs made a 2 ingredient sorbet with watermelon and mint….hmmm, maybe he got his inspiration from your recipe, hahaha! Looks gorgeous!
