I know it's super late, but if you were to puree the pineapple with a little bit of liquid and put it in the ice cream maker, it should make something delicious. You don't need to add any extra sugar. I think it would be amazing with coconut water (or even coconut milk).

I would, but I try to avoid artificial sweetener as well as added sugar. I know, I'm pretty picky... emoticon

and just an update guys, I went on an overnight trip, and while I was gone, my dad cut up and ate the pineapple... so hopefully I can either get another one, or maybe try it with a different fruit...

I am assuming you can use Splenda if you don't want to use sugar
or Agave nectar or Stevia ??

Ooh pineapple and orange would be really good together!

does the yonanas machine work differently than an ice cream maker? I think we have a cuisinart or something.

Just bought a Yonanas machine today. Darn - wanted to use it as soon as I got home but you have to freeze the fruit for "24 hrs" first. Hurry up and freeze, fruit!

For the soft-serve consistency, they suggest using frozen bananas along side whatever fruit you want to use. For more of a sorbet, you can forgo the bananas.

Maybe this would work for you?

If I try pineapple, I'll let you know. Pineapple & orange are a nice combo, too.

Pineapple Sorbet

1 pineapple, peeled and cored
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar


Cut pineapple into 2-inch pieces. Place pineapple and lemon juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Add sugar; process 1 minute or until sugar dissolves.

Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

Sadly I have not attempted it yet-- I'm sort of waiting to see if anyone has any suggestions on what to do. But the pineapple only stays edible for so long... so I guess I better just go for it! I'll post back when I do, don't worry! emoticon

I was just wondering if you had any luck making your sorbet? Sounds good.

I have this tasty looking fresh pineapple sitting on my counter... I really want to turn it into a sorbet or sherbet, but I don't want to add any sugar. I have an ice cream maker- if I puree the pineapple, add some Greek yogurt for creaminess, and pop it in the ice cream maker, will that even work? much thanks to anyone who knows, or can guide me in the right direction on preparing my pineapple for it's frozen dessert destiny! emoticon
