Strawberry Sorbet


When you have a milk allergic child, you will come to worship sorbet. 

A lot of ice cream parlors will offer one or two flavors of sorbet.  The great news is sorbets are made of fruit and sugar.  No milk.  Yea for Sorbet!

We live near several strawberry patches where you can take your kids and pick your own strawberries.


My little Butter beane in 2010 eating picking strawberries!


They are all starting to open for the season! 

I had some strawberries in the freezer, so I decided to give Sorbet a shot.

Glad I did.  My little Beanes love it.


Ingredients
1 pound of strawberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup of sugar
1 Tablespoon of lemon juice

Directions
Give the strawberries a few rounds in the food processor.  Make sure they are good and pureed. 
Stir in the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves.  Give it a taste to see if you want to add a little more sugar or not. 

If you are using frozen strawberries, go ahead and put in your ice cream freezer and churn, according to manufacturers directions.  If you are using fresh strawberries, put the pureed mixture in the refrigerator for about 2 hours before transferring to your ice cream freezer.  

This is best eaten as soon as you make it.  If you have any left over, just pop it in a plastic container and keep in your freezer.   

Here is one more look at it.  Delicious.

  2. YUMMY! This looks so good! Do you think you could use pretty much the same recipe and just change out different fruits? I would LOVE to have you share this at my link party and maybe become a new follower! Following you via GFC!

    1. I am guessing you can just change out the fruits. My kids are going through a phase where they are not eating many fruits right now. Strawberries is about all I have to work with.

  12. I have never really thought about making sorbet before, but after seeing that it is only 3 ingredients I'd feel bad for not even giving it a shot.

  21. Hi! Found you from Chic on a Shoestring Decorating. I cant wait to try this recipe!!!! My son is allergic to dairy and this will be a perfect treat for him. My best friend and I (both Christian SAHMs) have a recipe blog and we both have children with food allergies. Her son is allergic to gluten and my son is allergic to peanuts, dairy and eggs. My daughter is allergic to eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.
