Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberries are higher in antioxidants than just about every other fruit.

Strawberry Sorbet is the perfectly refreshing dessert for any summer meal.  This sorbet recipe is loaded with wholesome strawberries, which have numerous health benefits.  Strawberries are thought to be a cancer fighting food as well as high in vitamin C, anti-inflammatory and good for the cardiovascular system.  Research has also shown that strawberries can help to regulate blood sugar and decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.

I’m highlighting this sorbet recipe (previously posted several years ago) because it’s hot here (96 degrees in Boulder today), and I’m craving light and healthy food.  So here’s how to make sorbet the easy way –take note, this recipe contains a mere 3 ingredients.

    I just made this today! I think you could make it without an ice cream maker, but holy moly is this delicious! I made it with locally grown strawberries and local honey and it is SO tasty! Thank you for your recipes! They’ve saved my life! :)

      I was wondering if anyone used fresh berries instead of frozen, and it sounds like you did. Did you substitute using the same number of ounces or some other way?

      • Maria says

        We always do this with fresh berries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries…but I never add water just a little honey to taste.. Just blend in food processor and then into ice cream maker.

    Hey, has anyone tried substituting honey for agave? I can’t find agave in the stores around here (small town).

    Hi, if you don;t have an icecream maker can you make the sorbet in the vitamix with ice instead of water? Please advise. Thx

    You’re correct: strawberries are an excellent anti-cancer berry, along with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and black currants. In a recent study, 60 grams (2 ounces) freeze-dried strawberries were fed daily for 6 months to 36 patients with precancerous lesions in the esophagous. The result: 80% of the patients experienced a reduction in the grade (severity) of their lesions. [Yan et al., Proc AICR, Apr 6, 2011]

    What a yummy way to get my daily dose of berries. I added a tsp of lemon juice to pop up the flavor of the frozen berries.

    Looks great, Elana! Wish I had some strawberries now to make this. To make sorbet without an ice cream maker, I recently learned a tip from “The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen”. You freeze the sorbet base in ice cube trays and once they’re frozen, the cubes are pureed in a food processor until smooth.

      Thanks for the information – I don’t have a Vitamix or ice cream maker but I plan to try the blender, freeze, and blend again.

        A vitamix IS a blender, its an over priced blender. The company that creates it pays people to market it to other people, like their own friends! If you want a great blender at a reasonable price get a Blendtech! They’re amazing, I have one, I got my mom one (didn’t make her buy it like a Vitamix user would..) and It’s lasted years with no flaw. It handles anything and it also is SO easy to clean. It has a patented design that makes great smoothies, ice cream, all of that!

        Hope I don’t sound like a Salesman, I’m not, I’m a 23 year old med student who just doesn’t like to see people ripped off, enjoy!
