Oh, springtime and all of your fresh strawberries. What are we to do with you… according to my Pinterest board, blend you up and make Strawberry & Honey Sorbet! I was amazed at how easy and simply delicious this recipe was: a pint of strawberries, a little honey & a well squeezed lemon.
This recipe required very little fuss but got big of raves from all who got a chance to try it! A few thoughts about how this pin worked out in real life…
- The most time consuming part of this recipe was pushing the blended strawberries through the strainer. Make sure to use a fine mesh strainer — I didn’t expect that I would actually PUSH the strawberries through the strainer, but that’s definitely how it wound up happening. It probably took 5 – 10 minutes to get the strawberries properly strained, but after that everything else when very quickly.
I used the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen-Aid mixer and ran it for about 20 minutes then transferred to another container to finish freezing. Within a couple of hours it was ready for mass consumption!
- Since one of my friends who was coming over that night was pregnant, I opted not to use the vodka that the recipe recommended. The recipe noted that the vodka would make the sorbet smoother and softer & easier to scoop once frozen. I would definitely consider adding in the vodka next time since it was a little hard to scoop out once it’d been in the freezer overnight.
This is a healthy, easy summertime treat that I can’t recommend highly enough! Grab a pint of strawberries and get goin’!
