Freezing dulls flavor, so the coconut syrup should have an intense taste.
3 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
One 13-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons dark rum
Pina Colada Sorbet Recipe at
Pour the pineapple juice into a medium bowl. In a 3-qt. nonreactive saucepan, combine 1 cup of the coconut milk with the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring to be sure the sugar is incorporated. Boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining coconut milk and boil for another 5 minutes; the mixture will turn a brownish color. Whisk the mixture into the pineapple juice and then add the dark rum. Chill, stirring occasionally, and then freeze in an ice-cream machine according to the manufacturer's directions.

If you don't have an ice-cream machine, you can make a granita, which will have a coarser texture but will still be refreshing and delicious. Simply freeze the mixture in the freezer, stirring it vigorously with a fork every half hour or so for a few hours, to ensure that the coconut syrup doesn't separate.

Refreshing summer dessert
5-stars PLUS for taste and texture, but recipe was misleading, 4 stars directions carefully in advance and you'll be golden. Also, it took a min. of 20 mins. to reduce the sugar/coconut milk by half--not five. Says during this process mixture may turn brown (caramelization I guess),it didn't. All that being said, I reduced by half and proceeded with recipe and it was delicious. The sorbet texture PERFECT, even after 2 days in freezer. Used coconut extract bc of kids; next time, rum!
