Tips When Making a Healthy Strawberry Sorbet Recipe
Strawberry sorbet is a delicious, healthy, and refreshing treat. Here are some tips to help you make the perfect strawberry sorbet:
1. Use Frozen Strawberries
Use fresh or frozen strawberries for your sorbet. Frozen berries will give you a smoother texture, but fresh berries will add more flavor to your final product.
2. Naturally sweeten with lemon
Add a little bit of fresh lemon juice to your berries before blending them. This will help bring out the natural sweetness of the berries and make your sorbet even tastier.
3. Smooth with a strainer
If you want a really smooth sorbet, strain the blended berries through a fine mesh strainer before freezing them. This extra step will ensure that there are no chunks of fruit in your final product.
4. Fresh is best
To get the best flavor, use ripe strawberries that are at their peak of sweetness. Riper berries will also give you a brighter red color in your final sorbet.
When to serve a homemade strawberry sorbet?
This healthy strawberry sorbet recipe will work as a perfect after-dinner dessert. There are a lot of sorbet recipes that are complicated, so the goal of this recipe was to make the sorbet with as few ingredients as possible, no sugar added, vegan and something that could be made in a minute in a blender.
Does this strawberry sorbet recipe need an ice cream maker?
The other great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker. So many of the sorbet recipes out there require an ice cream maker and that is something I have no desire to purchase. You can also make this sorbet with other fruits as well. I have tried it with mango and it came out delish as well!
What goes well with a strawberry sorbet?
Once you try this delicious dairy-free frozen treat, you won’t have any cravings for full-fat ice cream anymore. The best part about this frozen dessert is that you can create a whole healthy toppings bar! Cacao nibs, goji berries, and I used a dusting of matcha green tea powder which my guests raved about.
Blender or Food Processor, which one do I need?
This recipe works best with a high-speed blender because both have the speed and horsepower to whip up the frozen fruit and ice into a creamy mix. If you have a different blender, give it a try but you may want to try using a bit of water to help get the blend going. The less water used, the better the icy texture will be. After you blend and before you freeze, taste the mix so you can adjust the stevia level.
