If you are vegan or are looking for more low-calorie, dairy free ice cream alternatives, you’ll love this simple strawberry sorbet.

When I first made strawberry sorbet, I was surprised by how quick and easy it was to make. Sorbet is a wonderful way to use delicious summer berries. Don’t be afraid to mix up the fruit too. Strawberry is always a go-to in our household. Combining blackberries and strawberries is another great flavor combination. I’ve even mixed up strawberries and peaches together too.

Freezing the fruit first is key to getting a delicious intense strawberry flavor and rich color. You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this strawberry sorbet.

Simple Strawberry Sorbet

This simple strawberry sorbet is quick and easy and has an intense fresh strawberry flavor.

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries (about 2 cups, cleaned, hulled and quartered)
  • 1 banana (cut into pieces)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 juice of half a medium lemon (seeds removed)
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Clean, hull and quarter fresh strawberries. Cut up the banana. Place the fruit into a gallon sized freezer bag and lay flat in the freezer. Once the fruit is nearly frozen all the way through, place it into the food processor or blender.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water, stir and place into the food processor. Add the lemon juice and salt. Blend and pulse the ingredients in the food processor until it is a smooth consistency.
  3. You can serve it immediately or place the sorbet into a loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Remove from the freezer several minutes prior to serving.
