I first tasted this little treat at Trader Joe's, where they were giving them away -- just giving them away! -- in little paper cups from the samples bar at the end of one aisle. I don't usually care for coconut, myself, but this one had me at hello, to coin a phrase. Mmm!
A pint of sherbet makes just enough to serve four people, as a summery after-dinner treat. I loved it with roasted and salted slivered almonds -- the salty nuts contrast wonderfully with the sweet coconut and chocolate -- but of course you can use unsalted if you like.
And it's so easy, the kids can put it together themselves!
Coconut Sherbet Sundae

chocolate syrup, such as Trader Joe's "Midnight Moo"

Divide the sherbet between 4 serving bowls or cups. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the sherbet, and top with the almonds.
Makes 4 servings. Active work time, about 2 minutes.
