STRAWBERRY LIME SORBET

Strawberry season is in full swing.  The kids and I had so much fun on the Strawberry Tour at Tanaka Farms and when we came home it was time to make one of our favorite Springtime desserts, my Strawberry Lime Sorbet.  As with any recipe, the quality of the ingredients is very important.  I only make this when strawberries are in season because the ripe strawberries make this dessert burst with flavor.

I shared some of the sorbet with my friend’s adorable twin girls on Thursday night and they both called me to tell me thank you and that they liked it, “we ate it all”…they are so sweet!

INGREDIENTS

4 cups sliced strawberries

1 cup So Delicious Vanilla coconut yogurt

Juice of 1 lime

2 Tbs agave (more or less depending on the sweetness of your berries)

1 Tbs. Frontier Vanilla Flavor (optional…do NOT use vanilla extract since the alcohol will taste bitter)

 ~

Place all of the ingredients (except the honey) into the blender and blend until smooth. 

Taste the sorbet mixture to determine the amount of sweetener needed and sweeten to taste.

Pour the sorbet mixture into your ice cream maker.  A few years ago my husband and I invested in a Cuisinart Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker (click here to see the model) and fortunately it has been put to good use.  I will forwarn any of you considering this model…it is LOUD!  We are very happy with the frozen treats it makes, but we do always put it in a different room while it is on because of the noise.

Once the ice cream maker has finished its cycle pour the sorbet into a container and freeze.  You may want to take it out of the freezer and mix it quickly every 30 minutes for 2 hours to keep the consistency even.

If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the sorbet mixture from the blender into a freezer safe container (I prefer a shallow container to expedite freezing) and take it out of the freezer to mix it every half hour until the desired consistency is achieved.

Remove from the freezer 20 minutes prior to serving to soften slightly.

  1. That looks wonderful. I don’t have an ice cream maker, so I end up making a lot of granitas. Not sure how long my resolve will last.

    • Maybe at the holidays and your birthday, etc. when people ask you what you want you can ask for ebay gift cards! My son and husband both figured out this little trick and that is how they “save” to buy items they couldn’t justify otherwise.

  2. Believe it or not, I did get an ice cream maker, a Cuisinart also, but have never taken it out of the box yet! I haven’t been interested in making rich ice creams, but this will be perfect!

    I make Avocado Lime Sorbet and I’ve never used an ice cream maker! I just let put it in the freezer and stir it around every half an hour for the first 3-4 hours then let sit over night. It takes like the real thing without the (sometimes) hefty price tag!

  4. That looks so fabulous! The color is amazing! I didn’t know you could put yogurt in sorbet, but what a great idea! I’ll bet it makes it a bit less “icy” and more creamy-like. I’m addicted to So Delicious vanilla coconut milk yogurt. So I’m excited to dust off my ice cream maker and try this recipe.

    Sorbet is generally just fruit. Because of the yogurt isn’t this a sherbet?

    • Hi Michael! I did struggle with whether to call this sorbet or sherbert…My ultimate decision was to call it sorbet due to the fact that it is non-dairy. You are technically right…it is a vegan sherbert.

    Gretchen shared some of her strawberry sorbet with us the other night and my kids loved it! It’s so light and very refreshing. This got my two thumbs up and I am normally a ice cream kinda girl.

  7. Incredible, it’s such a rich shade of red! I just love strawberries and frozen yogurt, so this sounds perfect. 🙂

  8. I am going to try the agave syrup next time I make sorbet 🙂
