Base: Comments:
Course: Dessert  
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

2 Cup(s) Pineapple puree, from half a
fresh pineapple
1 Cup(s) Fresh orange juice
1 Teaspoon(s) Coconut Extract
1/4 Cup(s) Part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 Cup(s) Flaked coconut, unsweetened
Makes 1 quart, serving 8, at 65 cals. Time varies from 1 to 5 hours,
depending upon freezing method. If using fresh pineapple: cut the
rind, eyes, and core from the pineapple. Cut the flesh into chunks and
puree them in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. You should
have about 2 cups of puree. (Unsweetened pineapple chunks, pureed.)
Add the orange juice, coconut extract, and ricotta and process
briefly. Chill the mixture and freeze in an electric or hand-cranked
ice-cream machine, following the manufacturer's instructions. To make
the sorbet in your freezer, transfer the mixture to a bowl and place
in the freezer. When the liquid has frozen solid, about 2 to 3 hours,
remove it from the freezer and, with a fork, break it into large
chunks. Place the chunks in a food processor and process with the
metal blade until smooth and creamy. Return to the bowl and freeze for
at least 30 minutes more. Toast the coconut: Set oven at 350F. Spread
coconut on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes,
or until lightly colored, stirring or shaking 2 or 3 times. To serve,
place scoops of sorbet in dessert dishes and sprinkle with the toasted
coconut. PER SERVING: 46.0 cals, 1.5 g fat (28.3% cff) From (1990)
