Cheat's pineapple, Thai basil & ginger sorbet Serves 6 1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks juice and zest 1 lime 1 small piece of ginger, sliced Handful Thai basil leaves, plus a few extra to serve 75g white caster sugar vodka or white rum (optional) Method 1. A couple of days before eating, tip everything into a blender or smoothie maker with 200ml water and blitz until very smooth. Pour into a freezable container and freeze overnight until solid.
2. A few hours before serving, remove from the freezer and allow to defrost slightly so it slides out of the container in a block. Chop the block into ice cube-sized chunks and blitz in the blender or smoothie maker again until you have a thick, slushy puree. Tip back into the container and refreeze for 1 hr or until it can be scooped out.
3. To serve, scoop the sorbet into chilled bowls or glasses and top with extra basil.
