From Scratch Pineapple Sherbert

I planned to share this Pineapple Sherbert recipe on Monday since I thought it would be the perfect accompaniment  to your Memorial Day feasts. That clearly fell through.  Fortunately, when it comes to frozen treats and ice cream any day is a good day to make a batch of homemade ice cream. I tastespotted this recipe over at Honest Cooking, pinned it immediately and prepared it for my 540WMain Open House. It was a huge hit and I couldn’t not share it with all if you.

This is more like a super rich sherbet than ice cream . It does contain dairy but I am working on a dairy free and refined sugar free version that I will share soon. In the meantime check out this super simple recipe below.
