My daughter went crazy for this sorbet when I first made it. I turned around for a second to get a spoon, turned back, and saw her literally digging her fist into the unfrozen sorbet. She wasn’t even an impulse-driven toddler when it happened, but a full-on first grader. Yeah, it’s that addictive!
- 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen mango chunks
- 3 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk
- Hardest thing about this recipe? Clearing out a spot in your freezer! You must have enough flat space on which to place a filled gallon-size bag.
- Place the mango, pineapple, spinach, and coconut milk in a blender and pulse. When the mixture starts moving, blend on medium speed until you have a smooth sorbet base.
- Pour the sorbet into a gallon-size freezer bag and press out as much air as you can without spilling the sorbet all over the counter. Seal and place flat in the freezer for 1 hour.
- Remove from the freezer and use a rolling pin to very carefully squish and break up the frozen chunks. Repeat this two more times: Freeze for 1 hour, squish. Freeze for 1 hour, squish.
- Serve the sorbet or transfer it to an airtight container and pack it down well, then cover and freeze for later use. The sorbet will keep for up to 3 months.
