INGREDIENTS IN HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY SORBET
A regular serving of fruit sorbet from ice cream shops or grocery stores can contain 40g of sugar. Like… whaaat? Told you sorbet is not healthier than ice cream unless you learn how to make sorbet at home.
My sorbet ingredients for this homemade strawberry sorbet are pretty basic and I’m sure you already have them in your fridge or pantry. To make strawberry sorbet healthy, you need:
- fresh or frozen strawberries
- raw honey

If you want to make this strawberry sorbet vegan, use pure maple syrup instead of honey. OR, if the strawberries are sweet enough, you might not even need to add any sweetener.

That’s all I gotta say about strawberries today. But these are some impressive benefits. And now you’ve got more reasons to make this strawberry sorbet!
HOW TO WASH STRAWBERRIES FOR SORBET
Back to the strawberry sorbet, with a non-recipe related step, but a pretty important one. Since you won’t be cooking strawberries, it is important to wash them thoroughly to kill any bacteria. I also recommend buying organic strawberries since strawberries are highly sprayed fruits.
If you can’t find organic strawberries, soak them in a vinegar-water bath (4 parts water, 1 part white vinegar) for 20 minutes to reduce pesticide residue. Or, just make sure to wash them very well in running water.
HOW TO MAKE SORBET WITHOUT AN ICE CREAM MAKER
Usually, in order to make fruit sorbet or ice cream, you need an ice cream maker. And you have to prep the fruits, blend the fruits in a blender with the rest of the ingredients, chill this base for at least 1 hour, then churn the sorbet with an ice cream maker, then freeze the sorbet.
Simple steps, I know, but not everybody has an ice cream maker. Everybody deserves strawberry sorbet though so let’s see how to make sorbet without ice cream maker:
- if you use fresh strawberries, freeze for 2-3 hours or until solid (if you use frozen strawberries, skip this step);
- place the frozen strawberries in a food processor or heavy-duty blender and blend until smooth;
- if the consistency is not quite how you like it, add a little warm water to help along;
- add raw honey as needed for sweetness.
That’s pretty much it! Your strawberry sorbet is ready to eat if you like the soft texture. If you prefer a firm texture, freeze for 2-3 hours and then enjoy. ⠀
HOW LONG DOES SORBET LAST IN THE FREEZER?
If you want to double or even triple the recipe to make strawberry sorbet for later, go ahead! You don’t have to worry about consistency! The consistency of this strawberry sorbet stays the same for about a month.
When you’re ready to eat your sorbet, remember to let it set out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes to soften before serving.

Craig Lee for The New York Times
This mouthwatering summer sorbet is an adaptation of one served at the River Café in London. Yes, it calls for an entire lemon (rind and all), but trust us: the sweet of the strawberries and sugar, the tart and bitter of the lemon – it all works together beautifully.
- 1 whole lemon, seeded and roughly chopped
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 pounds strawberries, hulled
- Juice of 1 to 2 lemons
- Nutritional Information
- Place the chopped lemon and sugar in a food processor, and pulse until combined. Transfer to a bowl.
- Purée the strawberries in a food processor, and add to the lemon mixture, along with the juice of 1 lemon. Taste and add more juice as desired. The lemon flavor should be intense but should not overpower the strawberries. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and churn until frozen.

Whether you’re growing your own strawberries or taking advantage of the excellent summer strawberry prices, strawberry treats are a must make during the summer.
Here in California, you can’t drive anywhere without encountering a strawberry stand or a you-pick strawberry patch. Even though my boys have entered the tween-teen stage of life, they still get excited about picking juicy red strawberries.
I might add, that we have dozens and dozens of strawberry plants in our own backyard but for some reason they seem less inclined to pick those… go figure.
We make all kinds of treats with our fresh strawberries but this strawberry sorbet is something special. Perfectly refreshing for those endless 100+ degree days that seem to hit sometime in mid-July and extend on through “fall”.
What Do I Need?
Strawberry Sorbet only uses four ingredients, one of which is water. So basically, there is no reason to NOT make this easy dessert.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- strawberries – feel free to use fresh or frozen here, use what you have!
- sugar – while the strawberries are definitely sweet on their own, a simple syrup made with the sugar and water really is needed in this sorbet recipe
- water – typically a simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of sugar to water but since we’re working with already sweet strawberries, you’ll only use one cup of sugar and three cups of water
- lemon juice – I also love this recipe with lime juice
