Total Time 1hour5minutes
3cansDr. Pepper soda(for a healthier treat use Dr. Pepper 10 - it's our favorite! But any Dr. Pepper soda will work), chilled
Coconut Lime Sorbet
1cupsweetened coconut milk (not condensed - you can find coconut milk in the Asian section at your grocery store)
4cupslimeade (I used Simply Limeade but you could use another brand or make fresh limeade as well)
optional: limes for garnish
In a large bowl whisk together coconut milk, limeade, and coconut extract. Either 1) freeze in your ice cream maker according to your maker's instructions and then freeze for 30-60 minutes in a shallow container OR 2) Pour mixture into a shallow container and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.
To prepare floats, place a couple of scoops of sorbet into your serving glasses (I used mason jars but you can use any cups/mugs/glasses you like). Pour chilled Dr. Pepper into glasses. Serve immediately with a straw or spoon and garnish with limed if desired. Enjoy!
Depending on which method you use for freezing the sorbet, your freeze time will be between 1 and 4 hours.
