3-Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet

My 3-Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet is the perfect healthy dessert for summer. All you need to make it is strawberries, water, and honey. Simply blend up those 3 ingredients and throw them in your ice cream maker to churn and chill. If you’re wondering how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker, see my quick and easy 2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream recipe.

This easy sorbet recipe is loaded with wholesome strawberries that have numerous health benefits. Strawberries contain phytonutrients and flavanoids making this beautiful berry bright red. Full of potassium, magnesium, and vitamin C, strawberries reduce the risk of cancer. Strawberries are a low-glycemic fruit, full of healthy fiber and help to regulate blood sugar and decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

I use organic strawberries in my 3-Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet and all of my other strawberry recipes. This is important because conventional strawberries are heavily sprayed with toxic pesticides. I go out of my way to avoid everyday toxins because I have the MTHFR gene which can lead to impaired detoxification.

  1. I do something similar but add some Grand Marnier to the mix. I freeze in a pan until just firm and then mix again in my KitchenAid mixer.

    • Onae, if you click the green text that says “ice cream maker” in the instructions portion of the recipe you will be given that information :-)

  2. Unrelated to this beautiful looking sorbet, wondering what dish liquid you use when washing up your dishes, as well as dishwasher detergent ?

    I have usually bought Seventh Gen prods or Trader Joes, but looking for best/healthiest brand to buy . . . . or to make myself if truly easy & not time-consuming to do ??

    • Terissa, thanks for your comment! Stay tuned, I will be doing a write up of all of my favorite household cleaning products soon :-)

  3. This is one hell of a recipe, Elana! I have to give it a try. What’s better to use, agave nectar or honey?

  4. 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?

      • 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.
