This piña colada sorbet tastes just like the real thing, just frozen; only difference is you eat it with a spoon, not a straw! One taste of this icy cold treat will whisk you away to a tropical island for a few heavenly moments.
Piña Colada Sorbet
This homemade low fat piña colada sorbet is the perfect solution to satisfying any sweet tooth, especially in the summer time. I also love my frozen Chocolate Sorbet, made with chocolate and espresso, or my Cherry Sorbet using real cherries!
I’ve been playing around with my new ice cream maker and I’m having fun with all the possibilities. My freezer is starting to look like a colorful sorbet shop, which is not necessarily a bad thing! I mean, what can be more impressive than whipping out containers of homemade sorbet when you have your friends over for dinner? Something you just whipped up? And it really couldn’t be easier to make!
This pineapple ice cream would make great tasting ice pops too if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Use your sweetener of choice, Stevia of course could be used in place of the sugar or agave if that is what you prefer.
Leave the rum out if you are making this for the little ones. The points remain the same with or without. Enjoy!!!

yum! i make it with frozen banana and dates to keep it sugar free and low fat
Nice recipe! It's yummy *-*
Has anyone tried this in popsicle molds? Will it freeze hard enough if made without the rum?
I prefer mango, can I follow the same instructions?
dont add the rum… my sorbet was more a slushy than a sorbet…
I made this today and it is delicious! So refreshing in this hot weather!
I had some coconut milk left over after making pudding, and then the other day I bought several pounds of fresh pineapple for a party and ended up taking most of it home. I needed a way to use both up, and this sorbet was the perfect recipe! The coconut milk I used was light, but I don't think its flavor gets lost at all. I served scoops tonight topped with chunks of pineapple and a drizzle of coconut butter mixed with a little more rum–delicious!
Oh my Gina!!! This is so yummy!!! I just left a bday party and skipped the cake because I was coming home to make this!!! Love the flavor!!!
Another easy way to do it, if you don't have an ice cream maker (or even if you do) is to buy the frozen pineapple and follow the directions the same way! I had a stick blender and not a regular blender, but it worked just as well with the pineapple still frozen, and you didn't have to even put it in the ice cream machine! Tasty!
I just made the mix and it is in the fridge for the chill part. I picked up light coconut milk by mistake so I added a tiny bit of coconut extract for the full coconut flavor. Can't wait to try it.
We had this at our Memorial day party yesterday…turned out PERFECT. My mom made a coconut cake to go with it. A huge hit. Thanks for the great recipe.
I made this today…and as I was making it, read the comments about the "light" coconut milk not giving enough "coconut" flavor. I had purchased the light milk, so after the puree chilled, when I put it in the ice cream machine, I added about a 1/4 cup of flaked coconut that I had in the house. AMAZING….I would make this over and over again…and will! yummmmmy! Thanks Gina. I am so thrilled that I found your site !
mmmm, how I love coconut!!
Oh, wow. I just made this and it is SO YUMMY! I may experiment with cutting the sugar, but it will definitely be in my summer rotation–THANK YOU for the great recipes!
I want to try this recipe- but I do not have an ice cream maker/machine. Any suggestions from everyone on what you have and love would be greatly appreciated!
I'm so excited to make this for a party this weekend. It's going to be the dessert. I'm wondering if you have any thoughts on possible toppings. I'm thinking toasted coconut, maybe a rum caramel sauce…what do you think? Anything else come to mind?
Hi Gina! This looks great but I had a question: could the coconut milk be substituted for LIGHT coconut milk, maybe shave off a point or so, or would it affect the recipe without much difference?
It could but I think it will lack some of that coconut taste.
thanks for this great idea! i don't have an ice cream maker so mine came out more like a 'frozen treat.' I also tried a pineapple basil version, less points (1!!) and i thought tasted awesome. I have such a sweet tooth and this really helped me stay on track. love your site!
Wow, I've only just blended up the mix to leave in the fridge while I'm at work tonight and my sneaky taste test was amazing! Our Australian pineapples have been extra sweet and juicy this year, so I'll definitely be making a few more batches before summer is over! Thank you!!!
you could use creamed coconut i think instead of coconut milk
This is so good that I immediately made another batch upon tasting the first one, now it is in the freezer for another night! I just need to go buy another pineapple so I can make more, this time with the rum for the grown ups!
This was so good! I had a ice cream maker I had never used and we finally broke it out. Can't wait to try the chocolate sorbet. Thanks for another yummy recipe!
I'll admit, I was a little hesitant on trying this recipe because I'm so picky about my pina coladas…but OH MAN. I received an ice cream maker this morning and gave this recipe a try….SO delicious! I had to substitute the fresh pineapple for canned (In Alaska a fresh pineapple is $8 lol) but with the coconut milk and rum it was still fantastic. I don't know if I want to even try any other recipe now..Way to go Gina!
It's my favorite drink 🙂
Just made this a few minutes ago to eat after dinner. We made the mistake of test-tasting it when it was done. Mistake. BIG. HUGE. (Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman) – holy cow, this was SOOOO GOOD. The kids, husband and I decided to have dessert first tonight!!! So good, thank you! (Oh and we obviously left out the rum this time – but will be adding that for a late night snack sometime for hubbie and I!)
Just finished freezing in ice cream freezer. It was firm, creamy and taste great. I used Splenda and Rum extract. Next time I'll double the recipe.
This was delicious! I left out the rum because I did not have any, but next time I am definitely putting it in!
Made this tonight and it was fantastic!!! Thank you!
hi Gina! I love the napkin! your pics are so tasty 🙂
Yes, you could probably freeze it then put it through the blender for a frozen drink!
If I didn't put this through the ice cream freezer, would it end up like a pina colada smoothie? I am so into smoothies right now…perfect for this hot summer we're having in Texas (108 degrees today!)
HIC – love this. I am all over anything Pina Colada. Last year I got to spend 6 months in the US Virgin Isles, where a bottle of rum is cheaper than a bottle of Coke.
