Sunday Slow Scoopin'

This week for the Sunday Slow Scoopers we are traveling a bit... To the official drink of Puerto Rico~ a Piña Colada!

Our recipe in 'The Perfect Scoop' is Piña Colada Sherbet.

Piña Colada Sherbet
1 pineapple, peeled and cored
1 cup sugar
1 cup Thai coconut milk (not the sweet Coco Lopez kind)
1 Tbs dark Rum
1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
Puree the pineapple in a blender with sugar, coconut milk, rum, and lime juice. Chill thoroughly, then freeze in your ice cream maker.

Waa~Laa!
It can't get any easier than this. Blend. Freeze. Enjoy.

A little bowl of creamy sunshine is just what the Doctor ordered after a couple of days out of the light. I am going to be the only person who gets a dermatology treatment and gains 10 pounds.



Y'all enjoy!

I thought I'd leave a comment since I've had you on my blog roll a while now. LOL It's been fun getting to know you through your blog.

I LOVE Pina Colada's and would have one every day if they were calorie free. I'll be sure and try this recipe out real soon.

Best,
Penny

Hey, Sandi, I'm catching up all week from being out of town. Love the pic of you and Bill..that's a keeper! Oh, and stay out of that sun, girl. I've had a little skin cancer myself & it'll put a scare in you.
