Easy Homemade Strawberry Sorbet Recipe
This refreshing and smooth easy homemade strawberry sorbet recipe is both simple and nutritious. No ice cream maker or churning needed. This method is quick and the recipe is refined sugar-free.
I have been making sorbet for years. In fact, homemade mango sorbet was my first published recipe in The Washington Post in 2012! I love that this method works with basically any frozen fruit. I have tried it recently with frozen peaches and it was like summer in a bowl. You really cannot go wrong with this recipe. All you need is a blender!
How to Make Homemade Strawberry Sorbet
For this recipe you only need two ingredients: frozen strawberries and pure maple syrup. The frozen strawberries go straight into your blender and you use the blender’s plunger to push the frozen fruit into the blades. Once smooth and creamy you can taste it add the maple syrup if you want it to be sweeter. This will depend on the sweetness of your strawberries. You can then enjoy the strawberry sorbet immediately as soft serve, or freeze for an hour if you want perfect looking sorbet scoops. It is sophisticated enough for adults but also a crowd pleaser with the kids. My kids love to make this recipe with me and devour it right away. No time for freezing for my kiddos!
Health Benefits of Strawberries
Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits since they are naturally tart and sweet. I only add a bit of natural sweetener to this recipe to enhance the sweetness slightly. Strawberries are not only nature’s candy but they are high in immune-boosting vitamin C and they are a great source of folate.
How to Freeze Fresh Strawberries
In this recipe you can use store-bought frozen strawberries or freeze them yourself. To freeze strawberries:
- Rinse strawberries with water and dry thoroughly.
- Remove the stems and leaves. You can leave them whole or slice them in half for easier blending later.
- Lay on a rimmed baking pan lined with parchment paper in a single layer allowing room between each strawberry so they don’t stick together.
- Place the baking pan in your freezer for at least
