How to make healthy strawberry sorbet

Step 1: Place strawberries, lemon juice, and honey into the base of your food processor. Pulse to begin to break up the frozen berries, and then let your food processor run for 3-6 minutes, stopping and scraping down the sides as needed.

Step 2: Be patient with the sorbet, it will eventually turn into a creamy sorbet mixture! If your strawberries are getting stuck and not moving, you can add water or fruit juice 1-2 tablespoons at a time to help get it going, but be careful not to add much liquid as it will leave you with a smoothie instead of sorbet.

Step 3: Once your sorbet is smooth and creamy, enjoy it right away or store it in a freezer-safe container or a loaf pan until you’re ready to enjoy it! Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before you want to enjoy it to let it become more scoopable.

How to store

While this sorbet is best enjoyed right away, you can also freeze any extra. Add it to a freezer safe container and freeze for up to 6 months.

When you’d like to enjoy your sorbet, remove it from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to allow it to become scoopable. It will be pretty hard and icy if you try and scoop it right away from the freezer.

Frozen strawberries – For this recipe I would not recomment using fresh strawberries. If it’s summertime and strawberry season is happening, freeze your fresh strawberries in a single layer for 3-4 hours before using in this recipe. You can swap in almost any frozen fruit for frozen strawberries!

Lemon juice – The combination of lemon with strawberries gives this sorbet strawberry lemonade vibes. You can also use lime juice or your favorite citrus juice in place of lemon.

Raw honey – Maple syrup or agave nectar are both great alternatives to honey.
