"The perfect ending for an exotic meal. Sweet and tart without being heavy--very refreshing. Unfortunately, this sorbet melts rather quickly. However, you'll be eating it so fast that it probably won't matter!"

This was a very light, refreshing sorbet but it didn't taste a whole lot like coconut. I added a little bit of sugar just because I felt that it really needed some, and the lime flavor came out just right-not too sour or sweet.

I cannot rate this recipe as I made it incorrectly, and realized my mistake too late. It is VERY important to use Cream of Coconut (which is sweetened) and not Coconut Milk (which is unsweetened). I think this is why other reviewers claimed this dessert was too tart. I added a cup of sugar after freezing, but before hardening and even this could not save the flavor. Will try again with the right ingredients.

If you can't find cream of coconut in the baking section of your store, try a liquor store. It is sold here under the brand name of "Coco Casa" as a piña colada mix. Anyway, this is one super sorbet! I made it just as written. The lime flavor is mild but welcomely refreshing. And yes, it is a sweet sorbet, but so long as you expect that, it is really good. Very nice! Thanks for sharing this one, Nandabear!
