COCONUT SORBET. The perfect cold treat for a hot day! ONLY 3 ingredients needed! So easy to put together this is sure to be your new favorite coconut dessert.
This easy to put together sorbet needs only 3 ingredients!!
Coconut milk. You can use either the type from the carton or the can.
Cream of Coconut. This needs to be the Coco Lopez type. Goya also sells a version. But it’s a sweetened cream of coconut. It’s basically a sweetened condensed milk version of coconut milk. This is where the sweetness comes from.
Coconut water. Any brand will do. You can use a kind that has pulp or doesn’t. It’s more of a preference thing.
Tools Needed to Make this Coconut Sorbet:
This is a recipe that requires an ice cream maker. My favorite one is this Cuisinart ICE-21.(affiliate link).

This coconut sorbet was inspired by a recipe I saw on the Goya website, here. I modified it slightly to include Coconut Water instead of regular water. If we’re going coconut, we’re going to go all coconut.
Hi all! My Cuisinart didn’t seem to want to firm up the mixture. Perhaps I didn’t refrigerate the mixture long enough. Thoughts? We let the machine run for quite awhile and then just poured it into a tub and put it in the freezer. If it still doesn’t firm up I’ll make curry out of it because there is no sugar in it.!
Hi Carol! I have to ask..did you freeze the bowl for your Cuisinart before running it? It should firm right up when you run it in the frozen bowl. I have no other suggestions or ideas for you. But like you said, if it doesn’t work enjoy that curry!
Hey! How necessary is it to chill the mixture? I was hoping to add it to the ice cream maker right away
You don’t have to chill it, but it goes a bit quicker when it’s cooled.
HI There! I noticed you didn’t add sugar. I was wondering if it tastes sweet? I can’t eat sugar so I was wondering how it taste.
Hi Anita! The coconut cream is sweet enough that there is no additional sugar needed 🙂
Kathy I fulled a coconut with gin sealed the hole left for 3 weeks shaking every day. Filled your receipt pulped the coconut added to a can of cream coconut 2 tbsp of brown sugar and half a cup of pineapple juice. What a beautiful after dinner desert.
Anyone else have trouble with their ice cream maker on this recipe? I have a kitchenaid attachment that has always done great with dairy ice cream recipes. But this recipe froze so hard to the sides while the dasher was spinning, that within 5 minutes it stopped altogether. It took hard scraping with a knife to get it off. Any pointers?
What size can’s? At least in Australia they come in different sizes.
Hi Kat! The cream of coconut cans are 15 ounces and the coconut milk is 13.5 ounces. Enjoy!
Any idea of the nutritional values?
