Once the pan comes to a boil, remove from the heat and puree the raspberry and pineapple mixture using an immersion blender, or in batches with a bar blender. Use a fine mesh sieve to strain the puree, and then add the lemon juice to it. Chill the base completely, and pour it into an ice cream maker.
