Riley's Easy Tropical Sorbet has just four ingredients, and it's naturally sweet enough that it needs no additional sweeteners! This treat is totally vegan and will make you want to dance the hula with all of its tropical flavor.
I love including my kids in the kitchen and seeing which recipes they enjoy making. My oldest, Riley, is definitely the most interested in what I do as a food blogger, though! She loves creating recipes with me in the kitchen and is always brainstorming her own creations. If you've tried Fudgy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies or Our Favorite Fresh Homemade Juices you know how tasty her recipes are. Watching Riley create, test, and adjust a recipe before taking the reins as photographer is so exciting to me. Someday this blog just may turn into Eating by Riley! Without further ado, here is Riley's Easy Tropical Sorbet!
Ingredients in Easy Tropical Sorbet
I love this short and naturally-sweet ingredient list! Riley picked some of her favorite fruits, froze them, and added coconut milk for creaminess. Simple recipes are so often the best ones! She made this sorbet with:
- Peaches - Cut and frozen!
- Frozen pineapple - Make sure there isn't any added sugar in your frozen fruit. Pineapple is plenty sweet without anything added!
- Mango - Sliced and frozen!
- Canned coconut milk - Make sure to get full-fat for extra creaminess. Yum!
No-Churn Tropical Sorbet
Perhaps the BEST thing about this sorbet recipe is that it can be made in your blender! It doesn't require any freezer time, which is perfect for kiddos who are excited for dessert. The small amount of coconut milk makes it SO creamy...I think everyone will be surprised it doesn't have any dairy in it!
All About Peaches
Do peaches count as tropical? They're technically temperate, but they add a great, summery flavor! The texture and color work perfectly in this tropical sorbet. Peaches offer important nutrients, including fiber and potassium. They have vitamin C, which promotes immunity and skin health. You also get vitamin A, which is important for skin, hair, eye, teeth, bone and vision health, and vitamin E for protection from some chronic diseases and protection from cell damage that can lead to cancer, heart disease, and cataracts as we age. Leave the peel on for added fiber!
Health Benefits of Mango
Mangoes are so naturally sweet that they're perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth while packing in important nutrients! Mangos offer similar nutritional benefits to peaches: fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C. I love doubling up on those nutrients while combining two delicious flavors!
All About Pineapple
I’ve found that pineapple really aids in digestion. It’s high in vitamin C (one serving provides 50% of your recommended daily amount!), so it’s a great support to your immune system, and it naturally sweetens the drink and gives a perfect tropical flavor.
Garnishing your sorbet is totally optional--it's so sweet and delicious on its own you don't really need to! If you do want to add something fun on top, try sprinkling your sorbet with fresh lime zest, coconut flakes, fresh cherries, or mint leaves. Fancy!
Sorbet Without Sweetener
We had planned on adding maple syrup to sweeten this sorbet but then we tasted it without and it was delicious! The pineapple definitely sweetens it enough that you don't need to add anything else. I love it when that happens!
Riley and I both hope you make and love this Easy Tropical Sorbet! It's made without refined sugar, dairy, gluten, nuts, or soy and it's delicious.

Riley's Easy Tropical Sorbet
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 4 cups 1x
- Diet: Vegan
For the sorbet
- 10 ounces frozen unsweetened pineapple
- 1 cup frozen mango
- ¾ cup frozen peaches
- ¼ cup canned full-fat coconut milk
- lime zest
- unsweetened shredded coconut
- fresh cherries
- fresh mint
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend on low speed. Use the blender's tamper (also known as a plunger) with the blender lid on to push the ingredients into the blades as they move slowly on low speed. Continue to push the frozen mango into the blades until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
- If your blender is having trouble wait a couple minutes for your frozen ingredients to thaw a bit more. Alternatively, you can add a little more coconut milk.
- Once the sorbet is smooth and creamy and no chunks remain, scoop it out of the blender using a spoon or an ice cream scooper. Divide into bowls and garnish if desired. Serve and enjoy immediately.
- You can store leftovers covered in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Any longer and it will start to freeze solid and be difficult to scoop. If stored for longer than 2 hours you will want to let the tropical sorbet sit at room temperature (or in your refrigerator if you have more time) until soft again. I find the texture is best when fresh.
