Pineapple boat with sorbet

And to close off the season of sorbet, I present to you a pineapple boat. Kandyce came up with this fun idea. When she was little she would spend vacations in Palm Springs. At their favorite Japanese restaurant they were given a pineapple boat for their birthday chock full of ice cream and topped with loads of sugared accessories. She decided to make one for you in a slightly more healthy version. Just carve out the pineapple and add in the scoops and top it off with some of your favorite goodies.
And to recap, here are the sorbet flavors we shared from July’s National Ice Cream Month.

Take out your violin because National ice cream month is coming to a close. But I have two more surprises for you friends one of them being this pineapple sorbet with chamomile tea and lemon juice, which is absolutely delicious.

Check out the recipe below.

The recipe is basically the same as last week, just swap out the tea and fruit. 

Pineapple with Chamomile tea and lemon juice 

3/4 cup chamomile tea (loose leaf at a local coffee shop works!)
2 tbs lemon juice
2 cups of pineapple
1/4 cup honey
In a saucepan, stir the tea and honey together over low heat until thoroughly combined. Bring the mixture to a boil, remove from heat, and let cool.
Place the 2 cups of fruit and the 2 tablespoons of juice into a food processor and puree. Once smooth, blend in the simple syrup made from honey and water. Mix thoroughly.
Scrape the sorbet onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread the mixture out over the pan, forming a thin layer. Freeze until solid then remove from the pan in chunks and puree again in the food processor.
Donzo.
Yields 2 1/2 cups of sorbet
To apply the chamomile flowers onto the cone you simply apply a small amount of honey onto the rim of the cone and dip into sprinkles. Easy squeezy.
Check out the other flavors cantaloupe, kiwi, and strawberry
