Strawberry Sorbet

Last weekend I visited a Strawberry farm where I picked some really fresh and BIG strawberries. It was such a great experience, the owner of the farm allows you to eat as many strawberries as you want and you can also buy fresh strawberries picked by yourself on a very reasonable rate. I got so excited i bought almost 2 kilos of them. I am planning to visit the farm again for some more strawberries and fresh raspberries :) Sorbet are one of my favorites and perfect for summers. With so many strawberries how could i not make one? Its the most simple and delicious desserts of all and not to forget so very refreshing!! I prefer to make sorbets using fresh and juicy fruits, berries go well, even pineapple, mangoes and peaches go extremely well. Personally we loved the strawberry sorbet, it tasted yummy and i just loved the color! Looking at it only made me feel all happy and cheerful.
Strawberry sorbet is making its way to Strawberry Feast hosted by Happy Cook and to Ben's Home Made # 5 Ice Creams.
Ingredients: 1 kg fresh strawberris chopped 3/4 cup sugar 1 tbsp fresh lime juice 1/2 cup water (optional only if required) Yeah thats it just 3 ingredients to get this fresh and refreshing sorbet!!! Look at the color, isnt it gorgeous?
Procedure:
  • Mix the sugar and strawberries and keep aside for minimum 4 to 5 hours, until the berries have released water and become mushy.
  • Blend together the strawberry and sugar until smooth. Add in little water if required. I did not add in any water as the juices released from strawberries were enough.
  • Pass this through a sieve to remove the seeds and to get a smooth sorbet. If you like crunchy you can skip this step.
  • Now add in the lime juice and mix well.
  • Freez the sorbet in a broad flat vessel or you can even make lollies out of this.
  • Remove from the freezer and refrigerate for 15 to 20 mins before serving, this will help the sorbet to become soft and you can easily scoop the sorbet.
  • Scoop sorbet in glasses and serve chilled. You can drizzle little chocolate sauce if you like or garnish with colorful sprinkles.

  2. That looks yumy Parita. Nothing like fresh fruit mushed into sorbet at home. No additives, no cream, no fattening calories and still yummy. Love it :).
    I recently made mango coconut sorbet but used canned pulp :(. Yours sound so much better.
