Orange-Pine Sorbet
This easy, two-ingredient sorbet is a refreshing dessert or snack for our hot, dry-season weather. The popular combination of orange and pineapple is a classic because of the balance between sweet and tart. Don’t worry about removing the core, the pineapple gets blended so smoothly that you won’t even notice it’s there.
If you don’t have orange juice on hand then, substitute with another type of citrus juice. Grapefruit, lime, lemon and even passion fruit would complement the pineapple. This sorbet is a healthy alternative to a much-craved scoop of ice-cream after dinner. Serve with fresh fruit for a light dessert or plain greek yoghurt if you feel like being a bit more indulgent.
