A pineapple sorbet recipe for the Passover / Pesach festival that is fat-free will serve as a refreshing, tasty, and healthy conclusion to any Passover / Pesach meal. While there are many dessert recipes to choose from, you can't go wrong with a pineapple sorbet recipe that has so many benefits!

Sorbet (also: sorbetto, or sorbeto) is a frozen dessert made from iced fruit purée as well as other ingredients. Sorbet is a form of gelato ("frozen" in Italian), where the latter is an Italian frozen dessert made from water, milk and/or soy milk, combined with flavourings, sweeteners, and a stabilizing agent, although sorbet contains no milk. Sorbet differs from sherbet in that, unlike sherbet, sorbet contains no milk, ice milk, or ice cream, but sorbet may contain alcohol. Sorbet, unlike sherbet, also does not usually contain gelatin, or egg whites. Ironically, the word "sherbet" is from the Turkish word for "sorbet" which is "sherbat". "Sherbet" (British and American English) is known as "Sherbert" in Australian English and "sherbert" is a variant spelling for "sherbet" in American English. Originally, sherbet was a cool effervescent or iced fruit drink, but the meaning, spelling, and pronounciation of sherbet or sherbert has come to mean different things in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. But I digress, as this web page is about showing you a pineapple sorbet recipe for the Passover / Pesach festival!
