I have a secret love affair with ice cream.

However, over the years I’ve determined ice cream doesn’t always love me back. Sometimes it gives me a sore stomach.

I used to wonder if I was lactose intolerant or had a dairy allergy. But alas… It seems to be just ice cream that makes my tummy hurt. Why God, why?

MY OTHER RECIPES

Needless to say, I’ve had to come up with some frozen alternatives to sooth my need for ice cream.

Today’s Healthy 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet is a super quick and easy frozen treat that is much lighter than ice cream, yet curbs the cravings.

Please note, this is not a dairy-free recipe. It’s not sorbet.

There is greek yogurt in this Healthy 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet to give it a silky ice cream texture. However it’s not quite frozen yogurt either, because there is a greater ratio of fruit than dairy. Therefore I’m calling it sherbet, and that’s what I’m sticking with.

Making Healthy 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet Recipe

I used only 6-ingredients in this tangy frozen dessert: frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, greek yogurt, a healthy liquid sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.

For sweeteners you could go with honey, agave, or palm syrup.

Honey is the most obvious choice, however it does add a distinct flavor to the sherbet. I actually prefer using coconut palm syrup, so the fruit flavor shines through.

The best part of this Healthy 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet is that it’s actually ready to eat the moment you puree it.

By blending hard frozen strawberries and frozen pineapple chunks with yogurt and sweetener, you end up with a creamy soft-serve consistency that is begging to be licked!

Of course you can freeze this treat for later, but I like to eat Healthy 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet straight out of the food processor with a spoon!

Don’t judge.

    I too have a love affair with ice cream. But, you have taken it to a whole new level. This looks amazing. I have to share it with my contacts via an outlook pst blast. Seriously, strawberry and pineapple are my favorite and you put them together as an ice cream!

    Because of a latex reaction, I cannot eat fresh pineapple. Would using frozen canned pineapple work in a similar fashion?

    This looks delicious!! I’m not a fan of the taste of honey, but have never seen palm syrup. Can you find it in stores or do you need to order it from Amazon? Is there a better brand?

      Hi Kristin,

      Our standard grocery chain offers rice syrup, agave syrup, and palm syrup right next to the sugar in the baking aisle. Any of these would work, but if using agave I would decrease the amount according to the measurements provided on the packaging. Hope this helps!
