  • ½ cup water
  • ½ pineapple peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
  • ½ cup sugar caster or superfine
  • ½ lime juiced


  • Prepare the light sugar syrup by combining the sugar and water in a sauce pan over a low-med heat. Do not stir. Allow the sugar to dissolve normally. Once the sugar has been dissolved take the sauce pan off the heat and allow it to cool completely.
  • Pour the cooled sugar syrup along with the pineapple pieces and lime juice in a food processor. Whizz until everything is pureed .
  • Pour the mixture into a shallow baking pan (mine measured 10″x6″ ) and allow to partially freeze (this took me approx 4 hours).
  • Remove from the freezer and scrape away with a fork. Serve in individual glasses garnished with some lime zest or mint.
