Strawberry Sorbet Ingredients

Strawberry Sorbet raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Simple Syrup

  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

For the Strawberry Base

  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed, tops removed and halved (or 2 pounds frozen strawberries)
  • 1½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

FRESH FRUIT: You can add other raw fruits such as fresh berries or fresh peaches to the strawberries in this easy strawberry sorbet recipe.

How to Make This Strawberry Sorbet Recipe

For the Simple Syrup

STEP ONE: Pour the water and granulated sugar into a 2 to 3-quart saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, stirring often. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, remove it from the heat and allow the syrup to cool completely.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Simple syrup is often used in cocktails and other recipes. It keeps well in the fridge for several weeks, so you could double or triple the batch and keep the leftovers for later.

For the Strawberry Base

STEP ONE: Add ½ of the capped strawberries to a blender. Blend on high until the berries are smooth. 

PRO TIP:

You can use a food processor instead of a blender to make the sorbet if you choose.
