Looking to cool off in hot weather. You can now easily make this Strawberry Sorbet in just 5 minutes. Yes, this fruit-based frozen dessert is so simple and easy to make. It is perfect for a slightly lighter alternative to ice cream and gelato. It tastes sweet and tangy with the best strawberry flavors. That is because the best Strawberry Sorbet should be the simplest. In this case, I use frozen strawberries, honey, and a little bit of warm water just to loosen it during the blending. In fact, you can also use this sorbet recipe for any other seasonal fruit too.

What Is Sorbet?

Sorbet is basically a frozen dessert made from blended fruit, sugar, and water. Occasionally water or other natural flavors might be added as well, but essentially sorbet is just fruit and sugar that is then churned like ice cream. Sorbet’s close relative granita–the precursor to Italian ice–uses the same ingredients as sorbet, but it is not churned and is instead flaked off by hand as it freezes to create a more coarse and icy texture. But instead of using an ice cream maker, you can easily blend it with a food processor following the recipe.

How to Make Healthy Strawberry Sorbet

Sorbet is basically made from fruit puree sweetened with sugar syrup. But bear in mind, the high sugar content of sorbet means it’s not actually a very healthy treat. Therefore, I replace the sugar with honey which is a healthier alternative. If you want to make this Strawberry Sorbet vegan, use maple syrup instead of honey.

Firstly, make sure to purchase the best-tasting strawberries because all the flavors will mainly come from them. Use the sweet strawberries because it means you will not need to add too much sweetness into your fruit puree. Then, place your strawberries on a parchment-lined baking sheeting, then put them in the freezer for at least two hours, or until they are frozen solid. This will keep your berries from sticking together when you store them.

All you need to do is to blend the frozen strawberries into a food processor until smooth, using a little bit of warm water just to loosen it. Then, sweeten it with honey and your Strawberry Sorbet is ready to serve.
