Strawberry sorbet, cold and creamy! All you need to make it is frozen strawberries, a little sweetener and a food processor. No machine, no churning, all strawberry deliciousness.
Where has this strawberry sorbet been all my life?
If I’d known all along that I could turn plain old good-for-me strawberry chunks into one of the creamiest, sweetest sorbets I’ve ever tasted, I could have saved myself tons of impulse candy purchases.
All this time, I could have been filling that sweet, fruity void with actual fruit!
I discovered this during my recent frozen fruit smoothie experiments. The frozen fruit smoothies come out so much like fruit milkshakes…what happens if I add a little more sweetness and leave out the almond milk? Creamy, delectable sorbet is what happens!
I plan to try this with every fruit I can think of. I’ll keep you posted.
You guys might have noticed I’m leaning pretty hard into the clean eating thing. It’s an awesome concept, and I’m loving the taste and feeling, if you will, of non or minimally processed ingredients. I’m not trying to roll 100% clean, but largely. Why I bring that up is this:
I’ve tried this sorbet sweetened with agave, a sweetener I like but it’s totally and utterly processed, and maple syrup, which is not. I loved it both ways, but favored the agave. The maple syrup taste comes through very slightly, but it’s still awesome. This is just a freakin awesome treat, no matter how you sweeten it.
I wish I could be there to to see your face when you go to scoop it. You’ll be amaze!
“Cook time” is the 1 hour it takes the strawberries to freeze.

1 hrPrep Time
2 minCook Time
1 hr, 2 Total Time
- 16 oz. strawberries, hulled and halved
- 1/4 c + 1-3 Tbs maple syrup or agave nectar, depending on how sweet you like it
- Freeze the strawberries in a parchment-lined container for about an hour, or until they're very firm/borderline hard. If you let them freeze overnight, thaw them in the microwave for just a few seconds before blending.
- Combine the frozen berries and 1/4 c sweetener in a food processor or powerful blender and process until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more sweetener if desired. Process after each addition.
- Enjoy soft, or transfer to a freezer safe container and let it firm up for about an hour to make lovely scoops.
