Prep Fruit

  • Freeze all the fruit, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple, and banana.

Prep Lemons

  • Slice a bit of lemon off the bottom to keep the lemon cup stable on the plate.

Mix Pineapple Lemonade Sorbet

  • Then spread the strawberry nice cream mixture into half of a 9 x 13 glass baking dish and then spread the lemonade on top working quickly as it melts fast. Take a spatula and swirl the two together.
  • Freeze for a couple of hours or until firm.

Assemble Sorbet

  • If you freeze overnight, place on counter to soften up for about 15-20 minutes before scooping into the lemons. Keep an eye on it, it melts fast.
  • Using a small 1" ice cream scoop, fill the lemons to top, and push several more scoops on top, press a raspberry on top. Or simply serve in bowls with raspberries on top.
  • Freeze nice cream filled lemons with raspberries for a couple more hours or overnight and serve.



This recipe works best with frozen fruit, to get the swirl effect when mixing the two nice creams together. 

high-speed blender:

You will need a powerful blender like a Vitamix to get the ingredients smooth. 


Keep frozen in the freezer on a tray covered with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
