This Piña Colada Sorbet Tastes Like a Tropical Vacation (and Only Takes 5 Minutes to Make)

Updated

Take 5 is a PEOPLE Food series with a mission: Get a star-worthy meal (or dessert or cocktail) on your table in either 5 minutes or using only 5 ingredients. Each recipe has been bravely tested, tasted and approved by our food editors for your eating pleasure. If you’re hungry for more recipes, we’ve got you covered.

If you can’t swing a beach vacay this summer, this might be the next best thing.

In just 5 minutes and even fewer ingredients, you’ll have a perfect dessert to serve for unexpected summer guests. The recipe has a subtle kick of booze, but if you want a kid-friendly version feel free to sub in some orange juice for the rum. Alternatively, if you want to kick it up a notch, you can always add more — just know that will make the consistency more like that of a frozen drink than a sorbet.

Watch the video above to see how it’s done then try for yourself!
