Pineapple & Banana Sorbet

Pineapple & Banana Sorbet is the easiest, most flavourful, cooling, guilt free summer treat. With no refined sugar used, enjoy this sorbet to your heart’s content. Since I had maple syrup at hand, I used added it to the sorbet. Therefore, this sorbet is vegan.


Over Ripe Bananas

Hot weather means that bananas tend to ripen faster. Instead of throwing the over ripe bananas, I chop them up and freeze them for later use. Sometimes I’ll use them for the following recipes:

Eggless Banana Walnut Bread is so easy to make and an excellent way to use up over ripe bananas. Besides that, the eggless version turns out super soft just like the one with eggs.

So many options, so please don’t bin those over ripe bananas.


Pineapple & Me

I love pineapple and can eat bowlfuls of it. Unfortunately, hubby is not a big fan of enjoying pineapple on its own like the way I am. So whenever I get a whole pineapple, I eat it by myself over a couple of days or sometimes land up making a dessert, smoothie or salsa. Hubby will have it if incorporated in any dish.

Pineapple & Banana Sorbet

So, this recipe came as I had some over ripe bananas and pineapple at hand. The first time I made it, I used sugar. Then replaced it with honey and maple syrup to make it a guilt free treat. Also realized that more over ripe the bananas are, less sweetener is required. I find that fresh mint adds a lovely summery freshness to a dessert. And I love using it with pineapple.


Sharing This Recipe With Foodies_Redoing Old Posts

Oh my gosh, simply unbelievable, this group has reached its 100th milestone. Amazing how time flies. But, all that credit goes to Renu of Cook with Renu. If she would not have started this group, so many of my old posts would still be old, with unfocused photos, bad writing, etc. I probably have redone about 80 old posts if not more. Also these posts getting attention and social media shares from like minded food bloggers has been a boost. Thank you Seema, Jayashree, Archana, Kalyani and Priya VJ who have been regular participants.

Ingredients Required For Pineapple & Banana Sorbet

Pineapple – I have used fresh pineapple. Am sure tinned ones would also work fine for this recipe.

Over Ripe Bananas – I have used 2 medium ones.

Mint – a few leaves of fresh mint. I add them in the blender with the pineapple and banana so they get crushed.

Maple Syrup – add according to the sweetness of the bananas and pineapple. Can replace it with honey.

Salt – I have used pink Himalayan salt. Just need very little to bring out the natural sweetness of the other ingredients.

      Thanks Priya, it is one of the easiest desserts to make. I’ve also made sorbet from leftover sugar from gulab jamun and rasgoollas.
