Homemade Strawberry Sorbet

Sorbet is really refreshing. No wonder some people serve it between courses to clear the palate. I love it for dessert. It’s like a lighter version of gelato (don’t get me wrong – gelato is also pretty amazing!) Sorbet is lighter than gelato though and lighter than ice cream. So if you want something refreshing but not necessarily creamy or heavy, sorbet is the way to go! 4-ingredient recipes are always appealing because they tend to be so easy.

Easy Strawberry Sorbet Ingredients

This quick and easy sorbet calls for sugar, water, strawberries, and lemon juice. This is a perfect summer dessert idea if you want to make something frozen but without an ice cream maker.

How to Make Strawberry Sorbet

Making strawberry sorbet without an ice cream maker really couldn’t be simpler, since all you need to do is melt the sugar in the water, blend the strawberries with the lemon juice, and then mix everything together. A blender or food processor would work for this fruit sorbet. Scoop the fruit puree into a freezer safe container and freeze.

After a few hours in the freezer, your easy strawberry sorbet is ready to serve. The exact freezing time depends on your freezer so you might prefer to make this recipe a day ahead to guarantee it’s frozen properly. Homemade sorbet will keep for at least a couple of weeks in the freezer. This is one of the reason I love sorbet recipes like this!

Refreshing Strawberry Sorbet Variations

This dessert can be made with frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones. You will need a decent blender if using frozen but the flavour of the sorbet will be every bit as good. In fact, feel free to change up the berries.

Making a raspberry sorbet instead is another summer dessert idea. In fact you can choose any fresh or frozen berries for this quick and easy sorbet with just 4 ingredients. Blackberries, raspberries or cherries would work.

Soft fruit like peaches, apricots or plums would work as well. Or you could combine a couple of different fruits if you want to get creative. It’s such a quick and easy sorbet you could even make a couple of flavours. This is one of the best frozen desserts you can make without an ice cream maker.

This sweet treat, made with frozen strawberries, is not only refreshing but really delicious too. I like to use fresh lemon juice instead of bottled. When a recipe has only 4 ingredients you can taste them all. That means it’s worth using fresh for the very best flavour. Oh, and you can swap the lemon juice for lime juice for a slightly different (but equally delicious) result.

Any flavour of sorbet with just 4 ingredients makes a great palate cleanser. You can make other flavours or just stick with strawberry. A serving between courses is typically just a tablespoon or so.

Another way to serve this refreshing strawberry sorbet is as a float. Pour a glass of your favourite soda then add a scoop of sorbet on top. You don’t even have to use soda. Champagne, sparkling wine or Prosecco with a scoop of sorbet on top makes an amazing summer cocktail!

    Delicious recipe that I could enjoy dairy free. I put some mini chocolate chips in mine so it tasted like a chocolate covered strawberry!
